    Since then, many good dramatic roles, such as Pulp Fiction, White Man's Burden, Michael, Phenomenon, Mad City, Primary Colors, The General's Daughter, and a great many others.

    Robin Williams was Mork from Ork. Tom Hanks was the guy on TV that dressed as a woman.
    We're watching Mork and Mindy clips on YouTube. Williams's comedic genius was clearly evident.

    That is if you had gone back to the early 1980's, and told people that 3 of the biggest dramatic actors in 20 years would be John Travolta, Robin Williams, and Tom Hanks.

    In the early 1980's, nobody had an idea of what dramatic capabilities these 3 men had.
    George Clooney. He played a bit part in Facts of Life. Admittedly not the best actor, but definitely one of this era's biggest stars.

    Hanks though is in a league of his own.

    Feel my pain, I am a nurse in my mid 50's and many nurses I work with were still in diapers when I started my career. I like messing with their heads.

    I like Clooney. He's a good actor.

    Well, you guys, you take care of yourselves. I won't forget you.

    No matter how many times i saw it, i teared up everytime he said those words in Good morning Vietnam.

    He was simply brilliant. One of the most gifted comedians and actors to ever grace our screens. My personal favourites were Mrs Doubtfire, What dreams may come and Good Morning vietnam.

    RIP.

    one of those souls you really felt would be around forever. maybe more people will appreciate his incredible talent now that it has been taken away.

    He has struggled with drugs for years. What a loss.


    RIP Mork.
    There are some men too gentle to live among wolves.

    Poor soul.

    From Sir Thomas Gray's "Elegy Written In a Country Churchyard":

    The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power,
    And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave,
    Awaits alike the inevitable hour.
    The paths of glory lead but to the grave.

    After my early tears, I tried to take a nap.
    The song that kept rolling through my head was "Just sit and Watch as Tears go by" by the Stones .

    His death will leave a mark on Hollywood and a hole in the hearts of the many that loved him.
    He entertained the world while he struggled with himself, so so sad.

    May he rest in eternal peace.
