Still Crazy after all these years

Williams, Gellar and Wolk on the set of The Crazy Ones

How Crazy is this: Pam Dawber is guesting on The Crazy Ones. Her old Mork & Mindy co-star, Robin Williams, confirmed it Monday but the rumour was out there over a week ago when TCA members were on set during the winter TCA press tour.
“Last time I saw her was 10 years ago and she looks the same, she’s gorgeous,” Williams told a gathering of reporters bussed to the set at CBS Radford Studios.
Williams praised how Dawber, now 62, helped ease him into the business after his explosive sitcom start on the 1978-82 sitcom. Dawber has been married to NCIS star Mark Harmon for 27 years.

“She made my life amazing,” said Williams. “On that show, she was my rock. As crazy as I was, she grounded it. Gave it such heart and love, she was amazing. And I was on everything but skates at that time.”

Williams also had high praise for his current co-stars on the CBS comedy, including Sarrah Michelle Gellar, James Wolk and Hamish Linklater. He says they all come ready to play.
“They all riff. They can not only keep up they can go farther
Jimmy [Wolk] big time. Its like a jazz group where everyone has great solos.”
He also says he’s having fun acting opposite 6-foot-8 comedian Brad Garrett, a recurring cast member.
Says Williams, “I think the two of us together look like the ascent of man.”
