    Academy Award winner Robin Williams whose inventive comedic talent made him a star of both movies and television has died in his Tiburon, California home. He was 63. Studio sources tell me he may have taken his own life.

    I'm not sure if it counts, but they just confirmed this on Faux News.

    Robin Williams dead at 63

    Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that it was a suicide, they did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.” Williams, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting, will reprise his role as Theodore Roosevelt in the third installment of Night at the Museum this December. He had recently signed on to reprise his beloved role as Mrs. Doubtfire in a sequel to be directed by Chris Columbus and was last seen opposite Annette Bening in the indie film The Face of Love.

    From Variety:

    Robin Williams Dead: Actor Dies of Possible Suicide | Variety
    Veteran film and television comedic actor Robin Williams was found dead on Monday. He was 63.
    The cause of death is believed to be suicide via asphyxiation, according to the coroner’s office in Tiburon, Calif. He was found in his home.
    His publicist Mara Buxbaum said the actor had been battling depression of late.
    “This is a tragic and sudden loss,” she said in a statement. “The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
    Williams is best known for both comedic and dramatic roles in movies including “Good Will Hunting,” for which he won a Best Supporting Actor in 1997. In addition, he won several Emmys, Golden Globes.
    Williams’ film career was bookended by TV roles including his breakout role on the ABC sitcom “Mork & Mindy” in 1978. He returned to TV on CBS last season, “The Crazy Ones.”
