    RIP Bob Hoskins dies of pneumonia aged 71



    Actor Bob Hoskins, who was best known for roles in The Long Good Friday and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, has died of pneumonia at the age of 71.

    His agent said he died on Tuesday in hospital, surrounded by family.

    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 ask that you respect our privacy during this time and thank you for your messages of love and support."

    A sad loss, Who Framed Roger Rabbit is one of my favourite childhood films, RIP Bob
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    He played some brilliant roles.
    Loved him in Mona Lisa, funnily enough watched Danny the Dog couple of weeks back.

    Brilliant British actor, will be missed.

    Shame. Another good actor passed away.

    Made In Dagenham was a good movie, and I think probably one, if not the, latest one he was in.
