Recalling Actor Bob Hoskins’ Notable Roles

With news of Bob Hoskins’ passing today, I began to think of each of my favorite movies from my childhood.  Several movies I couldn’t get enough of, starred the late actor.  Fairly confident I wore the VHS tape of Who Framed Roger Rabbit out.  How do you remember him?  Take a look at some of Hoskins’ notable roles and you can vote for your favorite.


Who Framed Roger Rabbit  (Eddie Valiant)- 1988


 Hook (Smee)- 1991 


 Super Mario Brothers (Mario) – 1993

Hoskins was an accomplished actor, having been nominated for an Academy Award as Best Actor in 1986’s Mona Lisa, a role he won a Golden Globe for.   His role as Eddie Valiant in Who Framed Roger Rabbit also got Hoskins nominated for a Golden Globe.  Without question, my favorite was Roger Rabbit.  You made a classic and I loved it, Bob.  These are films we grew up watching.

Which role do you think of when you hear Bob Hoskins’ name?
