Report: Does Robin Williams have a “Couple of Dicks”? The dude has enough balls to sue Frank and Beans…

Robin Williams is suing Frank and Beans Prods, and Gold Circle Films for over $6 million accusing the two companies of no pay when he agreed to star in the detective comedy film “A Couple of Dicks”. He was supposed to co-star with James Gandolfini (the Sopranos famed). Williams was informed back in March that the film is getting canned and it’s not going to get made at all. Williams maintains that Gold Circle is supposed to pay him even though the film is not getting made. It is part of a pay-or-play thing. This wasn’t the firt time that Gold Circle has been sued over this, Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson sued them for the film “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”.

Report: Robin Williams to star in “Worlds Greatest Dad”…written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait…

Robin Williams just signed a deal to star in a dark comedy titled “Worlds Greatest Dad”, the film was written and will be directed by comedian/actor Bobcat Goldthwait. You probably remember Bobcat Goldthwait in the early “Police Academy” films.

The synopsis is about a single dad and high school teacher who finds his son dead after an autoerotic accident. In an effort to give his son dignity in death, he pens a suicide note that is accidentally leaked to the student paper.

It’s about time Robin’s found a decent role for a change. He’s been choosing horrible films as of late. His movie “RV” is probably the worse he’s ever done.

Thought: Robin Williams on last night’s “Law and Order: SVU”…

I watched it last night. The “Law and Order: SVU” Robin Williams special, and it was surprisingly a very good episode, one of the best Law and Order episodes I’ve seen in a long time. As I already predicted, Robin Williams pulled off an amazing performance, it sent chills. I loved how Robin’s character in the show (pictured above) first turned out to be a good guy then turned bad at the end. Robin’s acting was better than the cast on the show. As a matter of fact, this is why he is doing movies over the years because he is just too good for TV.

I’ll be on the lookout to see how the ratings did for last night’s episode.

Here is the best scene from last night’s episode where Robin really started getting powerful in his performance. This scene with Robin and Christopher Meloni sent chills down my spine. This was a very moving scene. Great acting by both men all around, congrats Robin and Christopher!

REMINDER: Robin Williams to guest star on “Law and Order: SVU” this Tuesday…

Not only Grand Theft Auto IV hits stores that day, the “Law and Order: SVU” episode that guest stars Robin Williams will air on NBC this Tuesday at 10:00 p.m.

I don’t know if I’m gonna be watching that or not, I may just record it because I have feeling I’ll be addicted to GTA IV and will probably be playing that game all evening and night.

Robin Williams being on that show will indeed score high ratings for “Law and Order: SVU”. It’s his first TV appearance in many years and it will be people’s one time opportunity to see Robin Williams on TV for free instead of paying to see him on the big screen.

It shall be a good episode and of course he will deliver an incredible performance because Robin can play any role that throws at him no matter what it is.

Looking forward to seeing it.

Look like the show trying to find ways to raise ratings for the 200th episode. The world loves Robin Williams. I’ll probably watch this episode. I enjoy watching “Law and Order: SVU”. It’s one of the very few shows I watch all the time.
