Robin Williams was rushed to the hospital yesterday and reportedly went to the ICU for heart trouble. This week's performances on his current tour have been cancelled. Yikes. Famous actors spend a lot of time in fake hospitals in movies but one doesn't like to think of them in real ones. I've sometimes taken Williams to task for overkill in his performances but this news upset me a little. All I could think about was his naked vulnerability, confusion and humor of The Fisher King as he tries to woo Amanda Plummer. I love all of the performances in that movie. Get well soon, Robin.
