You most likely will have seen him in a movie, even if you do not know the name. British actor Bob Hoskins might be most know for the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but his body of work, both on the big screen and the small screen, is vast. He worked on both American film, as well as keeping to his British roots by going back home often to do productions of the famed classics, such as 1999’s adaptation of David Copperfield. He will be missed here, across the pond, and all over the world.

About Cecilia C.

I order the DVDs, Blu-rays, and Audiobooks at the Niles Library. I love movies almost as much as I love being a librarian. Also, I am an Anglophile, Hitchcock-phile, destined to move to London/England one day, loves to travel (Europe), loves to read, wishes for some more time to write.
