Bob Hoskins died at the age of 71 this week. We’ve lost another marvelous actor.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit was a staple of my childhood, his performance as Eddie Valiant was topnotch. He sold the idea that animated characters and humans can co-exist in the same world. Having seen a couple of behind the scenes stuff on how they did that movie, Hoskins really had to act, in the sense that he had to dig deep and use his imagination. That’s the way actors should behave in special effects driven movies.
From there he continued with Hook;
And I’m glad he was a part of one of my favorite movies, Brazil.
Sad to see you go sir, but you’ve left us with some great performances and memories.
