Robin Williams

Last Movie

Ironic Scene About Alcohol

8/13/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0812_robin_williams_tmz There was a crisis conference call Tuesday after Robin Williams' suicide ... with producers of his last movie trying to decide if they should delete certain scenes involving Robin's alcoholic character.

The movie is a family-friendly comedy, but during one scene Robin and his son -- played by Joel McHale -- reveal Robin's character is an alcoholic who's been sober for 6 years. Turns out Robin went to rehab 6 years before his death and was sober ever since.

Producers decided to keep the scene as is.  

Production sources tell us during the 4 weeks Robin was on set in April, 2013, he was stone-cold sober and showed no signs of depression. Quite the opposite ... he was upbeat the entire shoot.

We're told there will be one change -- Robin's picture will appear as the final frame of the flick ... in memory.

Robin Williams and Joel McHale? I am soooo seeing this movie! I would think Robin would want them to keep it in. He never seemed to shy away from talking about his personal life to help others. Only difference here is he is playing a character.

According to IMDB, this wasn't his last movie. "Night at the Museum:secrets of the tomb" comes after. And his final is "Absolutely Anything" where he did voice work.

I'm sure it'll be a big hit b/c of his death. Where it probably wouldn't have been otherwise. Just like his new sitcom that was canceled. No one watched. But if he had died during the season, it would've had a lot of ratings. An unfortunate and sad truth

Stop glorifying sucide.....he was obviously depressed...and was staying out of the spotlight that you expected him to be in forever...
