Re: RIP Bob Hoskins

Very sad. He'd done some great movies and TV:
The Long Good Friday
Pennies from Heaven
Mona Lisa
The Cotton Club
Who Framed Roger Rabbit

So sad!  Sad
Pennies from Heaven & Mona Lisa are the ones I liked.
Anybody else remember him in an Adult Literacy series called (I think) See & Hear?

A great loss, another good one gone, RIP Bob.
Hopefully someone in tv land might see sense & decide to show some of the classic Bob Hoskin's films.
Long Good Friday, Mona Lisa & Who Framed Roger Rabbit will do for starters.

Re: RIP Bob Hoskins

From an article in the Telegraph.
In 1975 he was offered his first television role, as an illiterate truck driver, in the BBC’s adult literacy programme On the Move. The programme established him as a “screen natural”, and attracted a wide following and an almost cult status. After his television appearance, offers of work on stage and screen doubled. One critic described Hoskins as having “cornered the market in the cheeky Cockney chappie”.

Re: RIP Bob Hoskins

Film 4 are showing the excellent Mona Lisa this Sunday at 11.25pm.
If you haven't seen it then either stay up & watch or set your recording device, a brilliant cast of Bob Hoskin's, Michael Caine, Cathy Tyson & Robbie Coltrane, it's a fantastic piece of work  Cool
