Well, another one of my notable childhood actors has passed away. Bob Hoskins has died at the age of 71. Reports say he died in a hospital with his family. According to the family’s statement, he passed away “following a bout of pneumonia”.
Bob Hoskins was best known for his roles in Hook, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Super Mario Bros, Nixon and The Long Good Friday.
While Hook and Who Framed Roger Rabbit might not be the highest quality of films, I’ve always loved them… even Super Mario Bros.
Of note, Bob Hoskins was nominated for Best Actor for the film Mona Lisa. He retired from acting in 2012 after Snow White and the Hutsman due to being diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
