Hollywood funnyman Robin Williams is so desperate to play a homosexual radio DJ in forthcoming movie THE NIGHT LISTENER, he's accepted a dramatically reduced salary.

The MRS DOUBTFIRE star will receive just GBP65,000 (GBP33,800) to play a radio host who befriends his biggest fan over the telephone in the movie adaptation of ARMISTEAD MAUPIN's best-selling novel of the same name, reports US newspaper NEW YORK DAILY NEWS.

SIDEWAYS star Sandra Oh and Muriel's Wedding actress Toni Collette are in talks to join Williams in director Patrick Stettner's forthcoming movie, which will begin shooting later this month (MAR05).
