    Robin Williams runs for President!

    Levinson, who wrote the script, will begin production late in the fall with shooting Toronto, and exteriors in Maryland and DC.

    He's been in movies regularly, but they have been dramas.....should be nice to see him being funny again. (Final Cut and One Hour Photo and Insomnia were NOT funny)

    Re: Robin Williams runs for President!

    It sounds like a good concept so i hope they can pull it off. Williams is one of those actors who, in my opinion, is only as good as the director controlling him. His schtick gets old fast for me. A good enough director that can keep his hijinx focused can produce great results, but too often they just let him go crazy and it's just not very entertaining to me. I feel the same way about Jim Carey and few other actors.
