Robin Williams Voices Simon Pegg's Dog In 1st Absolutely Anything Clip

Terry Jones' Absolutely Anything is a bittersweet film now. On the great side, this movie reunites Monty Python's Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, Terry Jones and John Cleese. But it's also one of the last roles for comedian Robin Williams, whose talent is showcased in the first-ever clip from the film.

Here's the premise: Pegg plays Neil Clarke, a disillusioned school teacher who suddenly finds he has magical powers bestowed upon him by aliens, who are voiced by the Monty Python gang. It's through these powers that Pegg bestows upon his dog the power of speech and reason. Williams voices the dog, and quite well. Overall, this looks like a delightfully fun film so far.

I have been waiting for this one a long time, even before Cumberbatch was being considered for Neil. I was delighted when I heard Simon Pegg landed Neil instead...his skills would be more dialed in to what Terry Jones does best, and to have him together with 4 of the 5 Pythons was a dream come true. To me, it was a trade up from Cumberbatch.

My only fear was if, in their dotage, we might lose another Python. Terry Jones cancer scare had me,on edge, but he snapped right back.

I would have NEVER imagined that it would be Robin Williams who would be lost, or that it would leave an equally gaping hole in my heart.
