Bob Hoskins, the versatile character actor, who appeared in some of the most acclaimed British films of the past few decades, including ”The Long Good Friday”, has died.
He died of pneumonia at 71.
Hoskins also appeared in ”Mona Lisa,” Stephen Spielberg’s ”Hook,” and played a down-and-out detective dealing with a cartoon star and his animated sultry wife in ”Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”
Two years ago, Hoskins announced he was retiring from acting after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
