It has taken me a bit of time to reflect on an actor that I respected and admired from the seats of my local multiplex. His work ethic and bonhomie are characteristics that I strive for myself and it had always been a dream to write a role for him - a dream that must now wait until the next life. But as a tribute, I have selected my personal three favorite performances from the "five-foot-six and cubic" cinema icon. Many of you will agree, others may say my choices are obvious... But there is no denying that the man's back-catalogue of work provides much wealth for discussion. And so in the order of the films' release, here are my Top 3 Bob Hoskins roles:-
"It's Good Friday. Have a Bloody Mary."
"Told ya I was cheap, didn't I?"
"She's married to Roger Rabbit?!"
