Robin Williams

Golden Globe nomination

18 Jan, 1998

Williams is a nominee for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for Good Will Hunting

What drew me to the role just was the idea of a guy trying to give back, who hadn’t been practicing in a while. Here he is, a vet with a history, with a life, an intelligent guy who admits he’s not as brilliant as the kid but who is saying, You’re brilliant but you don’t know shit about certain things. That appealed to me deeply.
