Robin Williams - Will You Come Back?

Every so often I do a post about Robin Williams, an actor who was incredible and had many of my favorite roles in the 1980s & 90s.

But in the 2000's his roles were less than flattering, causing me to declare Williams the most disappointing actor of the previous decade.

Pre-2000, his roles, while often comical, seemed to deal with important themes, particularly life change. But post-2000 it just wasn't happening... not the comedy...not the message.

And while I'm sure Robin Williams stage role in "Bengal Tiger At The Baghdad Zoo," is intriguing, I'm interested in seeing Robin Williams play another intriguing one-of-kind screen role.

Yet, it's not in the cards for this decade, yet...with no film credits in 2010 and only Happy Feet 2 in 2011, he's not off to a good start.

In 2012 Robin Williams will be in the ensemble comedy The Wedding (with Katherine Heigl, Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Susan Sarandon, Topher Grace, and Ben Barnes).

So, basically...Robin Williams isn't on the up and up path yet. Which is too bad.
