RIP Bob Hoskins

Bob Hoskins, known for 'Roger Rabbit,' dies at 71


Roger Rabbit? This man gave so many amazing performances in such a wide-range of films, most of them better and deeper than Roger Rabbit, IMAO. Somehow that being the "Known for" bugs me on his posthumous behalf.

Such sad news. I liked him best in Mona Lisa, not an easy film to watch but the plaudits he won for that role were highly deserved, he was excellent in that film.

Agreed...he had a such a great range. Really, the perfect character actor.

RIP. I loved him in so many things. I loved him in Mrs Henderson Presents, for a more recent role. Not that I didn't like him in Roger Rabbit, and I think it was probably picked for it's cultural status - rather like when any of the James Bond actors pass, that will be their "known for" - but still, I know what you mean. It feels not quite right.

It's really a tribute to his versatility that it's almost impossible to pin down a "signature" role. I thought he was amazing in Hollywoodland, among so many others.

It really is, yes. I can't think of anything I associate him with in that way, but he was wonderful. He was indeed. That was a really interesting movie in general (and one of my favourite acting performances from Ben Affleck, too).

One of a kind and yet able to be so many different kinds.
