(NEWSER) – Though the world has lost Robin Williams, his work lives on—including a fair bit we haven't seen yet. The actor has four movies due out relatively soon, showcasing his comic and dramatic range—not to mention some voice acting.

  • First up is Merry Friggin' Christmas, with Wendi McLendon-Covey, Lauren Graham, and Oliver Platt. The road-trip film about a dysfunctional family features Williams as a dad and Joel McHale as his son, the Los Angeles Times reports. It's due out Nov. 7, per Entertainment Weekly.
  • After that, there's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. Williams will be back playing Teddy Roosevelt with "a sense of that old Williams mojo," as the Timesputs it. It arrives in theaters Dec. 19.
  • The drama Boulevard, which has appeared at the Tribeca Film Festival already, tells the tale of a married man's involvement with a street hustler. The film features Bob Odenkirk and Kathy Baker and is directed by Dito Montiel; its release date isn't certain.
  • Williams will lend his voice to a dog in a new comedy directed by Monty Python alum Terry Jones. Also starring Simon Pegg and Kate Beckinsale, Absolutely Anything is the story of a teacher who gets supernatural powers from aliens. Its release is set for 2015, Entertainment Weekly notes.
  • As for another project in the works, Mrs. Doubtfire 2, it looks likely to be dropped without Williams, Variety reports.

Meanwhile, Hollywood is paying tribute to Williams.
