Four years ago the world was shocked by the sudden death of comedic legend Robin Williams. Famous for his TV role of Mork (from Happy Days and Mork & Mindy) and for his stand up comedy that was frenetic yet always incisive. However, it was his appearances on film that garnered him the most notice.
His roles in Dead Poets Society, Good Morning Vietnam, Mrs. Doubtfire, the original Jumanji, Patch Adams, Night at the Museum and many others made him an American treasure. He won the Oscar for Good Will Hunting, six Golden Globes, four Grammys, two Kids’ Choice Awards, and many others.
A new biography about him has premiered on HBO, titledCome Inside My Mind. The biography explores the legacy of the comedy icon and tries to make sense of his suicide.
Even though he is gone, we still have William’s many appearances in films that have nerd connections. Here are just a few:

For those gamers who have lived under a rock for the past few days, one of the most anticipated games of 2010 for the XBox 360 hit stores earlier this week – Halo: Reach, a prequel to the original XBox smash-hit, Halo: Combat Evolved.
One of the most appealing elements for Halo is the multiplayer mode, which allows you to kill your friends in all sorts of brutal ways with all matter of Earth-based and alien weaponry.
But no matter how sick your moves are, or how bad you trash talk, your Halo parties are no match for that of LL Cool J vs. Snoop Dogg vs. Chuck (AKA Zachary Levi), as shown in the video below from FunnyOrDie.com.
You just wish you could trash talk as well as Snoop.
