“There are so many reasons to grieve the loss of Robin Williams,” Lipton said. “One of the saddest is that he takes with him the multitude of characters he created – fifty two of them in a three minute span in the film ‘Aladdin.’ If it is true that an actor’s talent lays in the role choices he or she makes, Robin’s talent was unmatchable. But we already knew that, didn’t we?”
