Bob Hoskins

Postby Dirty Old Yank » Sat May 03, 2014 12:36 am

It’s always startling when people you admire pass on, but news of Bob Hoskins’ passing was more a like a kick in the gut, completely out of the blue. He’s such an icon, it seemed perfectly natural to assume he’d live forever.
Long Good Friday is a favorite, haven’t seen Mona Lisa in decades but its impact hasn’t diminished either.
Whatever the role required he never took a false step, an actor that didn't seem capable of deceit.
Can’t do better than that. RIP Bob, way too soon.

Yes he was a great actor DOY, I last saw him as the honest policeman in the violent thriller about a group of vigilantes 'Outlaw' starring Sean Bean.

RIP

I always enjoyed watching Bob Hoskins on screen. He was a better actor than he was ever given credit for, he will be missed.

Very shocked when I heard this on the news. I was aware he'd retired due to his parkinson disease but never knew he was suffering with pneumonia which resulted in his passing. He was an honest actor proud of his working class roots and never hid the fact. Sad loss and a true great! :|

Nobody was better at the cockney expletive than Bob.

He spoke the only two words in Pink Floyd's The Wall movie.

I can't post the first word but the second word was 'me' !

No bad for a bloke who started with ' On the Move'

Bob also starred along side brilliant actor the late John Thaw in the comedy Thick as Thieves (1974). Both had talent for comedy. 8)
