After posting some test footage of himself playing a young Robin Williams online, an actor has won the affections of Williams' fans with his impressive portrayal of the late actor. Actor, Jamie Costa posted the clip to Youtube, titled, "ROBIN Test Footage Scene” which currently has over two million views and fans are astounded at his acting skills and likeness.

The scene takes place on March 5th, 1982 on the set of 'Mork & Mindy’ where Pam Dawber (played by Sarah Murphree) tells Robin (Jamie Costa) that actor and friend John Belushi had passed away. At the beginning of the scene, we see Costa portray the happy, eccentric character we all know of Williams which then quickly turns into an emotional scene after he learns the news.

Fans took to the comments section to commend his impression, with comments such as, "Whoa. Just whoa. I felt like I was watching Robin. Incredible job. Hell yeah!” and "Absolutely speechless. This goes beyond incredible to unquestionably magical.”

Many commented that the scene wasn’t just an impression but an embodiment of Robin Williams, adding:

The scene left viewers wanting more, one writing, "Give this man a movie deal asap” and another saying they wanted an entire movie:

His impression has sparked calls for a Robin Williams biopic to be made and with the positive reaction of fans with this test footage so far, Costa would definitely be in the running to play him. Beloved actor/comedian Williams rose to fame in the late 70's playing the alien Mork in 'Mork & Mindy' and is known for films such as 'Patch Adams', 'Hook', 'Aladdin', 'Mrs. Doubtfire', 'Jumanji', and 'Good Will Hunting' (just to name a few).

Costa, a 30-year-old actor from South Carolina, USA is known for his appearances in scenes of Final Fantasy VII Remake (2020), Robot Riot (2020) and Kenobi: A Star Wars Story (2019).

Costa currently only has an IMDb page and on there it states he has had no active social media accounts since December 2020 but is still active as an actor and filmmaker.
