British actor Bob Hoskins, who was best known for roles in The Long Good
Friday and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, has died of pneumonia at the age of
71. The Long Good Friday is one of the finest British gangster films ever made - it's up there with Get Carter in my opinion. Always outspoken Hopkins, a life long socialist, famously stated that he hated Tony Blair and felt he had done as much damage to the country as Margaret Thatcher.
Hoskins died in hospital yesterday morning. His last acting role was in 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman.
