Robin Williams’ ‘body double’ was here (?!)

Said yesterday there appearred to be no local angle on Robin Williams, but one surfaced — sorta: Part of the the 1996 movie, “Flubber” was filmed here.

That fact is in UOP’s archives.

But Williams himself was not part of the shoot, says archivist Michael Wurtz.
 
“Robin Williams, like Harrison Ford before him, was in a movie that had a few shots taken on campus, but never set foot at UOP,” Wurtz writes. 
 
He adds:
 
“According to the November 7, 1996 Pacifican: “Film crews used 25 students as extras for a number of exterior shots of campus. At one point a Williams body-double was used to repeatedly crash a motor scooter into the steps of Knoles Hall for one of the scenes.”:
 
I’ll see if I can get a photo of the movie shoot.
