Who is Jamie Costa? If you do a quick search on IMDB you won’t find a lot. You will find that he has done some voice acting, fan films, youtube videos, shorts, and a couple other very non famous but interesting things.
He was a voice actor in Final Fantasy VII remake which we have another article on but other than that he is primarily a YouTube “star”. I put that in quotes because he has only 126k followers at the time this article was written.
Today a clip he made with presumably the same group he does his other fan videos with is starting to go viral. This clip is a biopic Robin Williams teaser that has fans wanting more.
Personally I was completely taken back by the footage. His impersonation and even just the fact that he looks like Robin Williams intrigued me. As I proceeded to watch the clipped I was amazed at how professional not only the YouTube clip was but also the acting. Take a look for yourself:
Are you more intrigued? You wanted to see more didn’t you. If there is ANY movie studio out there who is willing to pick this up, I would be first in line to watch. Even if this was on some subpar streaming service or a straight to video type situation. The acting in the clip from both actors is really good and the impersonation of the late Robin Williams is just exceptional.
Robin Williams was a positive influence on all of our lives and as we all miss him dearly, maybe we can get a piece of him back in a biopic with Jamie Costa playing his complicated yet fun personality.
What I like most about his clip is how respectful it is to the late actor. This wasn’t just a straight “Look I can do impressions”. This was a true representation of what it might have been like to be behind the scenes with this icon. I really hope we get to see more than this 5 minute video. Let me know when it is release in a full length feature film and let’s give Jamie Costa a chance.
