Bob Hoskins Dies at 71

By Will Ashton


Academy Award-nominated Bob Hoskins passed away this morning following a battle with pneumonia. He was 71.

It was only last year that the actor announced that he was retiring from acting after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Nevertheless, this news came out of nowhere and, therefore, seems to hit harder.

Although Mona Lisa is considered his most well-praised performance, he shined on the screen in films like Hook, The Long Good Friday, Nixon, Brazil and, one of my personal favorites, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Hoskins was last seen in 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman. He will surely be missed.
