There was much conversation about how "The Crazy Ones," which starred Williams and Gellar as a father-daughter ad agency team, seemed to begin as a vehicle for Williams but expanded to become an ensemble as the show evolved.
Gellar, trying to compliment him, said Williams had every award but a Tony.
"I don't have a Tony," Williams acknowledged.
"So we're going to work on that, though," she said. "That's our goal by the end. We're going to get you a Tony. ... And so I think we always knew that we were just lucky to be in his presence and to get to play off it."
Williams said he appreciated his younger co-stars.
"It's a great group of people," Williams said. "The pressure's off, thank God. So I don't have to be a Robin Williams vehicle. It's a bus."
But cleary, the pressure was not off for Williams, who suffered for years from drug and alcohol addiction and depression, which is what ultimately claimed his life through suicide.
My old Albany Times-Union colleague Amy Biancolli, the paper's movie critic during Williams' cinematic golden years, offered her own response to the reaction to Williams' death by his own hand, informed by her own deeply personal experience. It's worth reading.
