Actors Incredible Impression Of Robin Williams Leaves Fans Wanting An Entire Film

Actor Jamie Costa has blown fans away with his impression of the late Robin Williams and has left them wanting an entire film. Watch the incredible impression below:


Costa, an actor well known for his likeliness to Williams, posted the clip on his YouTube channel titled "ROBIN Test Footage Scene", which showed a scene from the re-done set of the sitcom Mork & Mindy, featuring Williams, played by himself, and Sarah Murphree as Pam Dawber.

As shown in the footage, Dawber sharply interrupts Williams while he runs through lines to break the news of comedian John Belushi's death.

Belushi starred in Blues Brothers and died aged 33 from a cocaine and heroin overdose in 1982.

The clip then shows Costa's reaction to the news, where his life-like impression makes him pretty indistinguishable from the late Aladdin actor.

Viewers just couldn't get over the actor's performance, which was so much more than a doppelganger - the physical actions were pretty uncanny.

One user wrote: "I don't know about the script, but his impression, vocal and movement-wise, are uncanny.

"Even if the movie blows his acting is incredible."

"Voice is on point but some of his mannerisms and facial ticks that he's incorporated are mind-blowing," added another user.

A third user commented: "From watching many movies of actors playing real people - I've definitely found that finding an actor that can sound and act like the person is MUCH more important than finding an actor that just looks like the person.'

While someone else wrote: "I'm blown away.

"The voice is perfect, and if he can have even half the manic energy Robin did he's going to be great the entire movie."

A final user concluded: "I feel like this is actually footage of a young Robin Williams and not an actor. It's incredible."

The late Oscar winner, who was best known for his starring roles in movies such as Mrs Doubtfire and Jumanji, sadly took his own life in 2014.

He would have turned 70 this month.

Months before his passing, he'd been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and it has been previously reported he had feelings of paranoia on the run-up to his death.

It was later discovered the actor was unknowingly battling Lewy body dementia - an incurable brain disease.

His wife, Susan Schneider Williams, explained: "My husband had unknowingly been battling a deadly disease.

"Nearly every region of his brain was under attack. He experienced himself disintegrating."
