Robert William "Bob" Hoskins, Jr. (born October 26, 1942 in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk – died April 29, 2014) was an Academy Award-nominated English actor. Although Hoskins had performed many dramatic roles, he is arguably best known to American audiences for the character of Eddie Valiant in the Disney film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He portrayed the live-action version of Mario in the 1993 movie Super Mario Bros., which Hoskins regretted working on. He retired from acting in August 2012 due to Parkinson's Disease (having been diagnosed with the disease in 2011) and died of pneumonia on April 29, 2014, at the age of 71.
