Actor Jamie Costa and others created this screen test, likely with the hope that a studio or Robin's family would see it and be given the chance to make a full feature. It's incredibly well done and I would love to see it happen.

That was shockingly good. I'd watch the hell out of that.

He sounds exactly like him. This actor nailed it. The girl wasn't very good but he was really impressive.

His daughter is asking fans to stop making things like this viral:

Seems like she is just saying don't spam her with it. That isn't the same thing.

"Guys, I'm only saying this because I don't think it'll stop until I acknowledge itÖ please, stop sending me the 'test footage,'" Zelda wrote on Twitter on Oct. 12, the day after Costa uploaded the video. "I've seen it. Jamie is SUPER talented, this isn't against him, but y'all spamming me an impression of my late Dad on one of his saddest days is weird."

Especially given the subject matter of the clip, people are dense.

Fun fact, his daughter is named Zelda because Robin Williams loved The Legend of Zelda!

Also, it is unlikely this will be made into a feature because there is some clause in his will or estate saying there will be no representations of him for 25 years or something to that effect.

That's good. I don't want to watch people pretend to be Robin. There is only one. There was a really good PBS documentary(I think) on his life and challenges. This scene was in it, and it felt much more powerful being re-told by his wife. Watching this after felt weird and uncomfortable. Uncanny valley-like, if that makes any sense.

I only made it about 20 seconds in. It definitely felt weird for me too. I canít imagine how Zelda feels.

Yeah, my first reaction was that this isn't something I'd want to watch if it were made into a movie.

I skimmed through the footage and was impressed by the actor, but it still felt weird and not something I'd want to see.
