First Look at Robin Williams in Merry Friggin Christmas (Video)

The world of entertainment is still reeling from the untimely and tragic passing of actor/comedian Robin Williams. Despite the pain that some people are feeling with the loss of such a genuinely good guy, it is important to remember the joy that he brought to people’s lives.

The late actor is leaving behind three final films for the people of the world to enjoy. Williams lent his voice talents to a sci-fi comedy titled Absolutely Anything, where he played the voice of Dennis the Dog.

He is also set to reprise his role as Teddy Roosevelt in the third installment of the Night at the Museum series titled Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.

Last, but certainly not least, there is his next upcoming venture, a comedy titled Merry Friggin Christmas. Now, we have a look at a clip from the upcoming film that shows just how brightly the late actor can shine, even in a very short moment of time.

For those of you who are not yet familiar with the premise of the upcoming comedy, here is a look at the official synopsis for Merry Friggin Christmas courtesy of

“Boyd Mitchler and his family must spend Christmas with his estranged family of misfits. Upon realizing that he left all his son’s gifts at home, he hits the road with his dad in an attempt to make the 8-hour round trip before sunrise.”

In the clip, which you can see below, we see Williams as a man named Mitch, who is listening to the troubles of young Douglas, played by Extant’s Pierce Gagnon, as he explains that someone has eaten all the cookies and drank all the milk and now he has nothing to leave out for Santa.

Fortunately, Mitch knows of something that Santa wants much more than milk and cookies.
