Jamie Costa

Fans of Robin William are raving about a new viral video.

On Monday, Jamie Costa shared a piece of test footage to YouTube that has since gone viral. With nearly 2 million views and counting, the video is a screen test for a potential biopic about Robin Williams. The five minute long scene finds Costa portraying Williams on the set of Mork and Mindy.

The scene takes place March 5th 1982: the morning after John Belushi died. Costa is joined by Sarah Murphree who plays Pam Dawber, Williams' Mork & Mindy co-star. Dawber was the one who had to break the news of Belushi's death to Williams. Williams himself sadly passed away about 30 year after his friend. Shortly after Williams' death, Jamie Costa earned some recognition for his spot-on impressions of the late actor whom Costa credits as his inspiration. Now, with this new screen test surfacing, will we see Costa stepping into shoes of Williams in a major motion picture someday? We'll just have to wait and see.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
