Today, the world lost one of the best actors of our time, Bob Hoskins.
Most know him from “Roger Rabbit”, but my favorite film of his is “Mrs. Henderson Presents”, in which he plays a West End London theatre producer that teams up with Judy Densch to portray an amazing true story of an actual event during the WWII bombing of London in which they had the stage actresses go nude to boost box office and entertain the troops. A first in British history!
Take a peek at the trailer….
Aside from the loss of a great actor, the main thing I will miss from Bob Hoskins in film is his eager enthusiasm to take major roles in Hollywood and British films that delve into some degree of sexuality in society.
He had a real knack for thumbing his nose at sexual censors, which is rare these days.
Bob will also be sorely missed as a serious actor that didn’t take himself too seriously.
In his obituary on CNN today….
Always a steady and straightforward worker — no “Method acting” for Hoskins — he appeared in at least one production every year from 1972 until his retirement in 2012.
“There’s two things I love about this business. One’s acting and the other one’s getting paid for it,” he told the UK paper The Guardian in 2007. “The rest of it is a mystery to me.”
The Telegraph and Bob go on to add:
“But true to his working-class roots — The Telegraph described his natural voice as “cockney as jellied eels” — he hated to put on airs.
“I met a little old fella in Regent’s Park when I was walking a character around. He said, ‘You are who you are, ain’t you?’ and I said, ‘Yeah, I am who I am.’ And he said, ‘That’s good. I grow roses,’ ” Hoskins recalled. “And we sat talking about roses all afternoon. It was wonderful.””
Rest in peace, Mr. Hoskins.
