Producers of Robin Williams’ final film, Merry Friggin Christmas, participated in a crisis conference call on Tuesday following word of the actor’s apparent suicide as they discussed scenes in the film that mention his character’s alcoholism, TMZ reported on Tuesday. It’s a road movie of sorts with Williams playing the father of Joel McHale’s character. In one scene, according to TMZ, Williams’s character is revealed as an alcoholic who’s been sober for six years. Coincidentally, Williams himself went into rehab six years ago and has been sober ever since. The producers reportedly decided to keep the scene in. They also decided to add an "in memory" slide at the end of the film. Williams is also due to appear in three other movies this year, reprising his role as President Theodore Roosevelt in the upcoming Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb; the drama Boulevard; and Absolutely Anything, in which he voices the animated character Dennis the Dog.
