Recently watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit with the family.  Still an incredible film, and Bob was great in it.  RIP, Mr. Hoskins.

Such a bummer. I recently revisited "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" with my kids (they loved it!), which has been a long time fave.

I also recently saw him as the bad guy in Neil Marshall's "Doomsday" and he was pretty bad-ass in that as well.

Out of respect I won't say anything about his spin as Mario in "Super Mario Brothers." :D

R.I.P. Sir. Thanks for the memories.

As I understand it, Robert Zemeckis had a script to a sequel to "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" he wanted to shoot with him being the director, but he never could get the financial backing to do it.

One more comment on "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" Hoskins said the hardest thing about shooting that film was trying to focus on a character that wasn't there, as the character of Roger Rabbit was added to the live action scenes after those scenes were shot.

R.I.P. Bob! You were one of the greats.

Hoskins is one of those rare actors who stand out even in a poor film.  Such a terrible loss, but at least he left us with excellent and memorable work.
