Posted on October 11, the video hit one million views in a matter of hours. Struck by the resemblance, fans are now clamoring for a biopic of the Oscar-winning actor worn by Jamie Costa.
Robin Williams appears to be resurrected. We owe this almost perfect illusion to Jamie Costa, American voice actor and impersonator. On his YouTube channel, he publishes his interpretation of a scene from Mork & Mindy, a series from the 1980s with the actor who died on August 11, 2014. Costa stars alongside actress Sarah Murphree. The latter evokes the death of John Belushi, Robin Williams’ best friend, who died on March 5, 1982 following an overdose.
Released on October 11, the short hit one million views in a matter of hours. In the comments, Internet users, struck by the resemblance, demanded a biopic of Robin Williams with Jamie Costa. Beyond the physical, Costa perfectly imitates the voice intonations of the actor. If fans are delighted to see Robin Williams come back to life, his daughter Zelda is more baffled. “Please stop sending me the short film. I saw it. Jamie is extremely talented, it’s not against him, but you’re spamming me with a knockoff of my late dad on one of the saddest days of his life. It’s weird.“, She expressed on Twitter.
Jamie Costa had already made a name for himself after Robin Williams’ death on August 11, 2014, with Never Had a Friend Like Him, a tribute video now deleted.
