Oh no! The great Bob Hoskins died of pneumonia at age 71

Actor Bob Hoskins has died at the age of 71 suffering from pneumonia, his agent has confirmed.
Hoskins retired from acting in 2012 at the age of 69 after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
The Oscar-nominated star of The Long Good Friday, Mona Lisa and Who Framed Roger Rabbit was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in the autumn of 2011.
This scene, the ending of The Long Good Friday, is considered by many to be one of the great moments in cinema. Hoskins' character, a British gangster boss, gets in his car thinking he is making a getaway with his own driver, only to discover he is hopelessly screwed. As a tweet from Simon Pegg today put it, "Bob Hoskins doing every emotion under the sun, without ever saying a word."
