Williams, an Oscar winner for his supporting role in "Good Will Hunting," starred in the title role in Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo in 2011 and opposite Steve Martin in Waiting for Godot Off-Broadway. He was also seen on Broadway in Robin Williams: Live on Broadway.
He had a comic triumph as the antic animated genie in Disney's "Aladdin," another playing a middle-aged female nanny in "Mrs. Doubtfire," and a third playing half of a gay couple playing straight in "The Birdcage." All three were box-office hits. He finally won the Oscar for his tough-love psychologist in Gus Van Sant's "Good Will Hunting" in 1997.
Williams' varied talents were showcased on stage and screen throughout his career, as well as his musical talents. He sang in the "Popeye" movie, danced in Bobby McFerrin's music video and performed at the 2000 Academy Awards, singing "Blame Canada" and high-kicking with mounties.
