Robin Williams Suicide To Be Re-Created Using Lookalike Porn Star For Documentary

Robin Williams’ suicide is set to be re-created for an English documentary, and the famous comedian will allegedly be portrayed by a lookalike porn star.

According to the Mirror, the British television station, Channel 5, are moving ahead with the sequence for their show, Autopsy.

Information regarding Autopsy’s plans are still currently unavailable. However, the aforementioned publication have reported that 60-year-old porn-star Alain Poudensan, who has also performed under the name Alain L’Yle, will star as Williams for the project.

The French performer is a professional Robin Williams lookalike, and he usually adopts the name Alain Robin when impersonating the comedian. You can even head over to Alain Robin’s official website to see the lookalike with his arm draped across the iconic comedian, who suddenly died last year.

A source close to Williams and his family has come out and voiced their disgust at Autopsy’s plan to recreate his last moments.

The insider explained to the Mirror, “With each passing day, the pain for Robin’s family eases just a fraction but something as disturbing as this just takes them backwards.”

They were perplexed at why a program would stoop so low, and hurt so many people that were close to Williams by profiting from his death. “Why anyone would want to make such a programme is beyond comprehension,” they proclaimed. “His wife and family will be utterly dismayed that someone is seeking to profit from Robin’s death in such a grotesque way.”

The source went on to add that they “hope people refuse to watch,” while they also insisted that Autopsy’s “producers should be ashamed of themselves.”

This isn’t the first time that Autopsy has provoked controversy by examining the death of a celebrity. The final moments of the likes of Whitney Houston, Brittany Murphy, and Michael Jackson have each been recreated for the show.

Robin Williams was found dead on August 11 in his home in California. Authorities later revealed that Williams had taken his own life, with a coroner’s report adding that the comedian had perished due to asphyxia from hanging.

Susan Schneider, who was Williams’ third wife, explained after his death that he had been suffering from anxiety and depression in the build-up to his passing. Williams was widely regarded as one of the most passionate, funniest, and wonderfully intense actors and comedians that the big-screen has ever had.

His appearances in the likes of Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, Aladdin, and Mrs. Doubtfire were not only delightfully eclectic, but they have also helped to mold his lasting legacy and prove that an individual’s death doesn’t sum up the life that preceded it.
