Last month, we learned that Bobcat Goldthwait would direct Robin Williams in a flick called World's Greatest Dad. The best part: While the title sounds like super-sappy fare (besides the Goldthwaite participation), it's actually the story of a high school poetry teacher whose son dies from a "freak masturbation accident." To cover up the "sticky" reason behind the death, the teacher pens a suicide note that becomes super famous, which then leads the dude to visions of stardom and inspires him to pen a whole journal for his deceased kid.

Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he also gets some action. At some point during this whole ordeal, he has an affair with a fellow teacher named Claire, who will be played by Alexie Gilmore (New Amsterdam). Talk about a prime role for the ol' Mork. These days, most of his films are either heavily familial, or heavily crappy, so now he's not only getting something that could freshen things up, but he gets to do it while canoodling with a 32-year-old.

Please don't let it turn out like Death to Smoochy. I think the world needs some good Robin Williams to revel in.
