Originally posted 08/12/2014 03:30PM

Robin Williams was a talent unto himself, able to ricochet from performances that were riotously funny to ones that were extremely sensitive, even somber. The wide, unstoppable mouth expressed the exuberant humor. The eyes – small, watchful and blue – seemed to express the sadness and the thoughtfulness. Here are some of my favorite movies from his eclectic but distinguished career.

PHOTOS: Neil Patrick Harris and More Stars Posing with Their Gender-Bending Selves

Originally posted 06/06/2014 10:00AM

Hedwig and the Angry Inch's Neil Patrick Harris isn't the only big TV star up for a Tony Award Sunday night, but give him credit – he is the only TV star nominated for playing the role of a transgender East German glam-rocker.

In honor of Harris's transformation, we've decided to see what the How I Met Your Mother star looks like posing with his gender-flipped self, along with an octet of actors who – whether they played trans characters, or just cis folk forced to cross-dress by the demands of plot – also became their own personal Orlandos.

That's right: Our Photoshop time machine is now a Photoshop gender machine.

Get those dinner reservations in order – a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire is in the works.

Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are attached to the 1993 family comedy's sequel, which is in development at Fox 2000. Elf screenwriter David Berenbaum is writing the script, which means you can possibly expect a scene where Mrs. Doubtfire's engines are revived by the power of Christmas.

Mrs. Doubtfire's 20th Anniversary Style: Kim Kardashian and More Celebs Channel the Iconic Character

Mrs. Doubtfire hit theaters 20 years ago Sunday, and the classic comedy seems more relevant than ever. Just this week, a 7-year-old girl saved her mother's life, claiming she learned the Heimlich maneuver from watching the movie.

Earlier this year, Robin Williams pointed out that the floral frock Kim Kardashian wore to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala was reminiscent of one he sported in the film. In fact, Mrs. Doubtfire's sartorial influence can be seen on several of today's stars. Here are some other examples we discovered.

Mara Wilson Lists Reasons Why Former Child Stars 'Go Crazy'

Despite the history of former child stars having trouble transitioning into adulthood – as evidenced by Britney Spears's public meltdown in 2008, Lindsay Lohan's ongoing troubles, and, most recently, the upheavals taking place in the life of Amanda Bynes – former child star Mara Wilson said she "had a generally good experience" standing before the cameras in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), Miracle on 34th Street (1994) and Matilda (1996).

She also clearly developed a pro's perspective on what can happen as a child star matures – because she's now shared her thoughts in a breezy yet thoughtful essay on the Cracked.com humor site, titled "7 Reasons Child Stars Go Crazy."

In it, the 25-year-old gets a handle on why "not many child stars make it out of Hollywood alive or sane." She also sheds light on why "at any given time there are at least three former ones having very public breakdowns."
