I really don’t think anyone could be more excited than me about Robin Williams coming back to TV. Let’s not forget, Mork and Mindy gave the star his huge first break. The show that introduced us to manic stylings of Robin Williams and his mile-a-minute joke style, and now Williams is back with The Crazy Ones, starring with TV favorite, Sarah Michelle Gellar. Seems Robin Williams came on CBS news to talk a bit about the show, his reputation, and what it is like to be back on television.
The Crazy Ones stars Robin Williams as an ad agency genius (think a funnier Don Draper), and the show is getting a lot of buzz for the already acclaimed actor. Matching up Williams frenetic humor with the pace of an ad agency is a genius idea, and we can’t imagine it not working. In the interview, Williams talks about how it feels to be back on TV, some of his hilarious experiences hanging out at a real ad agency, and what it is like to work with the cast he is working with.
As you know, I have a soft spot for stars who seems humble and down-to-earth, and considering Robin Williams has been doing this for thirty-plus years, and doing it will, it blows our mind he is still humble. But as you will see with this interview, he very much still is.
The Crazy Ones airs on Thursday nights at 9:00 on CBS.
