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.

Winona Ryder and Christina Ricci had a splashing reunion at the Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 fashion show!
The pair acted together in the movie Mermaids back in 1990 with Bob Hoskins and Cher. Likewise, this photo begs just one question: uh, where in the Seaworld is Cher?
Oh, UH uh! You do NOT just invite half of the main cast of Mermaids and not invite Cher! Marc Jacobs you better turn back tooooowm and right this wrong now mister!
Regardless, it's nice to see such a happy reunion, and gurls, you gave these runway models a
run swim for their money clams! You two looked gorgeous!

Did you see Snow White and the Huntsman this weekend and happen to notice that the seven dwarfs aren't played by dwarfs?
Sure, they look like dwarfs in the movie, but only because the actors' limbs were digitally altered or their faces were digitally transplanted on able-bodied little people. The producers' decision to exclude any actual dwarfs from starring roles in the film
