    Actor, Bob Hoskins Passes at Age 71


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MarieSager told me, 'Yes, he was a gentleman and I talked to him mainly on the phone as it was strictly business. But the entire "Roger Rabbit" experience was something to be remembered in the entertainment world.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Bob Hoskins will always be remembered for his role as Eddie Valiant in the 1988 movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit". I had the opportunity to be a tiny part of spreading the good news of the Opening Box Office Numbers to Bob Hoskins, while working at the Marketing Department at The Walt Disney Studios.  A very pleasant man. 



    I've worked on several movies, but this production had an overwhelming excitement about it. Disney had brought together once again, Animation and Live Action, something they do well.  Bob Hoskins shined in his role, and definetly had a full time job keeping up with Roger Rabbit (Charles Fleischer).



    Thank you Bob Hoskins for being part of my Disney experience.  May you rest in peace.
