Robin Williams was a brilliant shape-shifter.Williams was pronounced dead Monday at his San Francisco Bay Area home, age 63 .Williams had been battling severe depression, said press representative Mara Buxbaum. Loud and manic, he parodied everyone from John Wayne to Keith Richards, impersonating a Russian immigrant as easily as a pack of Nazi attack dogs.He won his Academy Award in a rare dramatic role as a therapist in the 1997 film "Good Will Hunting". Like many comedians, Williams had dramatic ambitions.Williams joined fellow comedian Steve Martin in a 1988 Broadway revival of "Waiting for Godot".Williams also made a short-lived return to TV last fall in CBS' "The Crazy Ones," a comedy about a father-daughter ad agency team that co-starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, was canceled after one season.Williams announced in 2006 that he was drinking again but rebounded well enough to joke about it during his recent tour.Williams identified with the wildest and angriest of performers – Jonathan Winters, Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, George Carlin.Williams could handle a script, when he felt like it, and also think on his feet.
