Bobcat Goldthwait, who had his start as an actor in the “Police Academy” series, has had a well-rounded career, spanning from acting, stand-up comedy all the way to directing. He recently sat down with Larry King for “Larry King Now” to discuss directing his latest project, “Call Me Lucky.”

While chatting with King, Goldthwait expresses being initially nervous to direct Robin Williams in “World’s Best Dad” and how the experience actually helped their friendship strengthen. He also openly talks about William’s death, including being diagnosed with Lewy body dementia, the second most progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s disease, in his coroner’s report. Goldthwait gets choked up while sharing his fondest memories with his best friend.
