Fortunately for audiences, the 61-year-old actor and comedian's lack of speed derailed his athletic career. But he did get to play a football coach in a new Snickers ad.
DAN PATRICK: What coach would you have liked to play for?
ROBIN WILLIAMS: Vince Lombardi. He was amazing. If I could be in a game and have him coach me, that would be incredible.
DP: How were you at football?
RW: Really bad. I'm slow, small and white.
DP: What were you good at?
RW: I was good at cross-country. I wrestled ... at 107, which is pretty much male anorexic. I played one football game as a freshman. I was so bad, the coach said, you know there's another sport called soccer.
DP: You played a wrestler in The World According to Garp.
