British actor Bob Hoskins died Wednesday in a hospital after suffering from pneumonia, according to a statement released by his publicist, Clair Dobbs. He was 71. Hoskins was best known for his role in the 1988 animated/live action film ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ as private investigator Eddie Valiant. He also played the lovable pirate Smee in the blockbuster movie ‘Hook’ alongside with Dustin Hoffman.
Ultimately Bob Hoskins may never have been the biggest box-office draw or the most wildly famous actor around, but he is certainly one of the more beloved ones. He was an amazing talent and was somebody that always brought a smile to your face.
RIP, Bob. And thanks for all the memories.
