Bob Hoskins

Sad news coming in I'm afraid, as we find out that Bob Hoskins who starred in Steven Spielberg’s Hook and Who Framed Roger Rabbit has died at the age of 71. He was suffering with Pneumonia. The star was nominated for a best actor Oscar in 1987 for crime drama Mona Lisa, in which he starred opposite Sir Michael Caine and Robbie Coltrane. He announced he was retiring from acting in 2012 after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

"We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Bob," the actor's wife Linda and children Alex, Sarah, Rosa and Jack said in a statement.

"Bob died peacefully at hospital last night surrounded by family, following a bout of pneumonia.

We are sorry to hear such sad news at the loss of Bob Hoskins.  Our thoughts are with family members and friends.
