Veteran British actor Bob Hoskins, whose notable work includes Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, The Long Good Friday, Mona Lisa, and Hook, has died at age 71. Per the AP:
A family statement released Wednesday by agent Clair Dobbs said Hoskins died in a hospital after a bout of pneumonia.
His wife Linda and children Alex, Sarah, Rosa and Jack, said: “We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Bob.”
In 2012 Hoskins announced that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and was retiring from acting.
Hoskins was not only a remarkably versatile actor who made every role his own, but he also hated Super Mario Bros. the most of all. He will be missed.
