Robin Williams, born
July 21, 1951 in Chicago, got his start on "Laugh In" in
the late 70's. Of course who could forget his role
as Mork from Ork on the TV series "Mork and Mindy,"
which started in 1978 and ran for several years.
Williams could also be found on various stand-up shows
in addition to SNL. His 80's movie debut was
Popeye in 1980. Other 80's movies that Williams
starred in include The World According to Garp (1982),
The Survivors (1983), Moscow on the Hudson (1984), The
Best of Times (1986), Club Paradise (1986), Seize the
Day (1986), Good Morning, Vietnam (1987), The Adventures
of Baron Munchausen (1988), and The Dead Poet's Society
(1989). Williams continues to stay very, very
busy, with tons of movies in the works.
