Bob Hoskins dies aged 71
It is with a sad heart that Need To Consume has to announce the death of actor Bob Hoskins aged 71 from a bout of pneumonia.
Whilst being most well know for his turns in Mona Lisa and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Bob Hoskins had a career spanning 5 decades and across all genres. His early roles were in the 70s, bit parts until his breakout role in The Long Good Friday, turning in a master-class of emotional acting and range, highlighted perfectly in the closing scene of the film.
After this, he lent his trademark hangdog looks and gravelly voice to films as varied as Hook, Garfield, Made In Dagenham and Snow White And The Huntsman
Bob Hoskins announced his retirement from acting in 2012 due to the onset of Parkinsons Disease and is survived by his wife and children.
