Bob Hoskins retires from acting due to Parkinson's disease
Editor’s Note: Other personal favorites of mine include Brazil, Hook, Nixon, and Unleashed. Definitely check out Unleashed if you haven’t yet. Not only is Bob Hoskins the perfect villain, but it is probably Jet Li’s strongest performance as an actor. Best wishes on your retirement Bob.
In news that'll shock a lot of us, actor Bob Hoskins was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease last autumn. Despite this news, he was still doing some film work, but via his agent, Bob Hoskins has decided to retire from acting as of yesterday.
Bob's most well known roles was playing Super Mario in the Mario Bros movie and playing Eddie Valiant in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. Hoskins also was in The Long Good Friday, Mona Lisa, and his most recent film with Snow White and the Huntsman.
It's sad to see Bob Hoskins retire, but I'd like to wish him the best of luck during his retirement.
