Robin Williams filmed a movie in a little nearby town years ago. When not filming in a retro-looking diner, instead of returning to his hotel, he browsed the quaint small-town shops that lined the street. There was a big news story about it at the time. On his last day there, he returned to the bicycle shop and spend thousands of dollars on high-end bicycles. Apparently, this was very common for him - giving back to the businesses that his film shoot likely interrupted.
I still haven’t watched the whole thing. It includes interviews with a lot of huge stars. Robin Williams is prominently there. He says that meanwhile he calls the director for his last name, Radio Man calls him only Marty. I also found very funny when Matt Damon recriminated him that he didn’t saw him during The Departed shooting because he probably was chasing the bigger star Leonardo DiCaprio! He then admits it. Lol
He isn’t homeless anymore but he lives in a very precarious situation.
He has worked as extra in a lot of movies filmed in New York. He also has some lines in a few. It seems to me that’s the case in Eric because it looks like he is chatting with BC in those photos. Hopefully, they doesn’t cut his scene out of the series!
