Robin Williams Impersonation By Jamie Costa Goes Viral, Zelda Williams Responds

Today, the internet went wild for a viral video showing actor Jamie Costa impersonating a young Robin Williams. The five-minute video entitled "ROBIN Test Footage Scene" shows Costa as Williams circa 1982 on the set of "Mork & Mindy." Although there is some comic charm, it's largely a dramatic scene revolving around Williams receiving the news of the death of his friend John Belushi. The resemblance to Williams is uncanny, from his general appearance to mischievous wink to poignant self-reflection. The impression had fans online calling for Costa to play Williams in a biopic.

Costa, who also made headlines in 2014 for a clip of several shorter Williams impersonations, has worked primarily as a voice actor, with upcoming appearances in the TV shows "Zack in Time" and "Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man and the Monsters of Manhattan." He has also acted as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a pair of unofficial "Star Wars" fan films.

Zelda Williams, the daughter of the late comedian who works as an actor and director, commented about the video on Twitter. She praised Costa's talent, but also asked people to stop sending her the clip because of its embodiment of one of her father's saddest days.
