When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

So many great and diverse roles over the years. Among my favorites:

Very sad to hear.

I'll always have a soft spot for him in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

I must have watched that movie over a hundred times as a kid. I'll remember him for that role the most but I enjoyed many of the movies that I've seen him in. Very sad to hear indeed.

An amazing actor. I was just looking through his credits on IMDB and the range of historical characters he's portrayed over the years is amazing. Pope John XXIII, Manuel Noriega, Nikita Khrushchev, Winston Churchill, Benito Mussolini. Literally from saints to sinners.

My favorite movie with him in it is Brazil with him as the heating system repairman as seen in the you tube video in the first post here. I swear whenever I get asked for some piece of official paperwork for something I think of that scene.

The Long Good Friday deserves a mention, particularly the ending.

This is a spoiler, you have been warned.

He was, and I nearly also mentioned that in my posting, but it would have defocussed it a bit.

I think it was the first role of his I noticed. The Long Good Friday is earlier, but I definitely saw that one later. Pennies from Heaven (the original) is also earlier, but either I saw it later (I think) or didn't pick up on Hoskins specifically in it (unlikely).
