Robin Williams Fans Are Blown Away by Actor Jamie Costa's Impersonation: 'We Need a Biopic'
Robin Williams fans are blown away by actor Jamie Costa's impersonation of the beloved star. Costa shared a five-minute clip to his YouTube channel on Tuesday titled "ROBIN Test Footage Scene," and viewers were quick to applaud the actor's spot-on take on Williams.
The clip, directed and edited by Jake Lewis, features Costa as Williams on the set of Mork and Mindy in 1982 when his costar Pam Dawber, played in the clip by Sarah Murphree, breaks the news of John Belushi's death to Williams.
Belushi died in March of 1982 of a drug overdose at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles at age 33. Williams had with the comedian hours before his death.
Williams died by suicide in 2014. In August of this year, his son Zak marked the seventh anniversary of his dad's death with a tribute on social media.
"Dad, seven years ago today you passed on," Zak wrote, sharing a photo of Williams. "The joy and inspiration you brought to the world carries on in your legacy and in your family, friends, and fans you so loved. You lived to bring laughter and to help others. I will be celebrating your memory today. Love you forever."
