This is really sad news.  Robin Williams the star of Steven Spielberg's Hook and Mrs Doubtfire has died age 63.  It appears the actor had taken his own life although this hasn't been confirmed at this time.

From the BBC news website:
US actor Robin Williams found dead, aged 63, in apparent suicide, California police say.
Williams was famous for films such as Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poet's Society.
The authorities in California are describing it as an apparent suicide
"At this time, the Sheriff's Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made," police said in a statement.

Robin Williams played Peter Pan in Steven Spielberg's Hook and the actor phoned Steven Spielberg to cheer him up during the filming of Schindler's List.  The actor apparently struggled with the condition Bipolar and severe depression.

He had been open about his battle with alcohol and drugs in his past.  He had recently returned to rehabilation to "fine tune" his sobriety.
