#TaniaOnTheScene - Sadly, we say goodbye to a great actor.

Robin Williams was found dead in his home on Monday around noon.

Over the years, Williams struggled with alcohol and cocaine addiction, and as of late, struggled with severe depression.

The international superstar’s first major role was as a lovable alien in the TV series “Mork and Mindy.” He was also known for his many roles, from “Good Will Hunting,” to “Dead Poets Society,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Jumanji” and more.

The 63-year-old reportedly died in what appears to be a suicide from asphyxiation.

#TaniaOnTheScene - A spokesman for Tracy Morgan says that he remains in critical condition after undergoing surgery on a broken leg and will remain in a New Jersey hospital for “several weeks.”

Lewis Kay says that Morgan was more responsive Sunday after sustaining a broken leg, broken femur, broken nose and several broken ribs in a deadly chain-reaction crash on the New Jersey Turnpike Saturday morning that left a friend dead and two others critically injured.

Kay says Morgan’s family is “tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”

Two others, 36-year-old Jeffrey Millea, of Shelton, Connecticut, and 43-year-old comedian Ardie Fuqua Jr., of Jersey City, remain in critical condition.

Comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair was killed in the crash.

Rejoice! Dave Chappelle is Back!

#TaniaOnTheScene - Dave Chappelle, who’s generally kept a low profile since the end of “Chappelle’s Show” eight years ago, is about to come back in a big way.

Chappelle is the headliner for Funny or Die’s "Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival," which kicks off August 23 in Austin, Texas. The tour, which also includes Flight of the Conchords, Demetri Martin and Kristen Schaal, will run through 13 cities in five weeks, concluding in Mountain View, California.

Oh, it’s not like Chappelle has been in hiding; in fact, he’s touring the Southeast right now, and will be playing three shows in Nashville and five in Atlanta in the coming weeks. But in recent years the comedian’s best-known public appearances have been occasional drop-ins at L.A.’s Laugh Factory and spots on “Inside the Actors Studio.”
