Robin Williams in Bob Goldthwait's 'Dad'

Posted on

(FROM THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? Robin Williams and Alexie Gilmore (New Amsterdam) are starring in writer-director Bobcat Goldthwait’s indie feature World’s Greatest Dad. Williams plays a high school poetry teacher who copes with his son’s death from a freak masturbation accident by faking a suicide note to spare the family shame. The note gets published without his permission and becomes a sensation, prompting the teacher to write a personal journal he claims was penned by his son. Gilmore plays a teacher having an affair with Williams’ character. Williams’ upcoming projects include the indie comedy Shrink and Disney’s Old Dogs, and Gilmore next stars opposite Matthew McConaughey in Surfer Dude. (Hollywood Reporter)
