Late actor Robin Williams turned down a lucrative offer to headline two massive stand-up shows in Las Vegas.

The "Good Will Hunting" actor, who died earlier this month, was approached by bosses at AEG Live in July, 2012 to perform two headline shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

In the document, obtained by TMZ.com, Williams is offered $600,000 for the performances.

However, the funnyman turned down the proposal, and his representatives tell the website he was committed to his TV comedy "The Crazy Ones" at the time.

The show was cancelled after one series earlier this year.
