Fans Calling For A Robin Williams Biopic After Comedian’s Impression Goes Viral

Since his death in 2014, the world has been a little dimmer without the kinetic joy of Robin Williams. The legendary comedian never met a medium he couldn’t tackle, leaving behind a legacy that no one could even begin to touch. And yet, comedian/impressionist Jamie Costa has done it again, sharing a reel of what he calls “test footage” that’s wowed the internet so much, there are calls for him to officially be cast as Williams in a biopic.

The scene, based on details from author Dave Itzkoff’s biography Robin, depicts Robin Williams on the moment he discovered that his friend, SNL legend John Belushi, died that morning. As the story goes, Williams learned from Mork & Mindy co-star Pam Dawber that Belushi had passed, leading to the emotional moment that Jamie Costa and co-star Sarah Murphree share, as Williams and Dawber, respectively.
