Sad news everyone. Actor Bob Hoskins, who is often recognized as Eddie Valiant from the 1988, live-action/animated hybrid classic that is Who Framed Roger Rabbit. His death, at the age of 71, came two years after a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease forced him to retire from acting. He had a healthy career both before and after Roger Rabbit, and managed to find steady work in a production every year from 1972 to 2012. Hoskins is survived by his wife and four children.
