The cause of death is believed to be suicide via asphyxiation, according to the coroner’s office in Tiburon, Calif. He was found in his home.

His publicist said the actor had been battling depression of late.

“This is a tragic and sudden loss,” his publicist Mara Buxbaum said in a statement. “The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

Williams is best known for both comedic and dramatic roles in movies including “Good Will Hunting,” for which he won a Best Supporting Actor in 1997. In addition, he won several Emmys, Golden Globes.

Williams’ film career was bookended by TV roles including his breakout role on the ABC sitcom “Mork & Mindy” in 1978. He returned to TV on CBS last season, “The Crazy Ones.”

The Return of Jimmy Kimmel Sucks!

The cast of “Monuments Men” is coming to chat with Jimmy Kimmel tonight, including his arch nemesis Matt Damon. It’s sure to be a good time!

If you remember, back in January, 2013, Damon took over Kimmel’s ABC late-night show, temporarily renamed Jimmy Kimmel Sucks!, which was chock full of big stars including Andy Garcia, Sheryl Crow, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Nicole Kidman, Gary Oldman, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon and Demi Moore. For the whole hour, Kimmel was gagged and tied to a chair.

Damon, making his return tonight with his Monuments Men cast, causes even more tension with the late night host. (Watch the brief preview below.)

According to The Hollywood Reporter: “If that wasn’t enough, Kimmel will do another installment of “Mean Tweets,” this time with a tweet from his own Twitter handle, @jimmykimmel. In the clip, Kimmel bashes Damon, though the Oscar winner has the last laugh (yoga pants!).”

Scheduled to appear tonight with Damon are George Clooney, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban and Cate Blanchett. This episode of Jimmy Kimmel is airing at the same time as Jay Leno’s last show.
