Who Framed Roger Rabbit Star Bob Hoskins Passes Away At 71

No, not Super Mario!

Bob Hoskins, who you'll probably remember best as Eddie Valiant from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? has tragically passed away.

According to his agent, he died yesterday surrounded by his family and had been suffering from pneumonia.

This is the saddest.

It seems just like yesterday he was Mr. Smee to Dustin Hoffman's Hook, and Muir in Snow White & the Hunstman.

That was the last film Bob had done before retiring due to a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease in 2011.

Our hearts go out to his loved ones in this incredibly trying time.

    Very shocking and sad. He was great in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and Mermaids.

    awww. I always liked him. I didn't know he'd retired from acting due to Parkinsons a few years ago. Sad. May he RIP.

    I believe he was SIR Bob Hoskins. He was knighted…

    I was one of the few people that found "Inserts" a work of genius. He was great!
