Actor known for portraying the manager in “Pink Floyd’s The Wall,” died at the spry age of 71.

Bob Hoskins was also known for playing Boris the Goose in “Balto,”  Mario Mario in “Super Mario Brothers,” and most embarrassingly, Smee in “Hook.”

But Hoskins was also in great movies.  He was in “Brazil,” which is an awesome movie that about four of you have seen.  He won a Golden Globe for “Mona Lisa.”  This guy was all over the place.  He was in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” which is a great movie that does not get proper credit.

“Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” is the funniest movie about segregation, racism and gentrification that I’ve ever seen.  I mean, think about it: The toons all have to live in Toonville.  The word “toon” is used as an insult.  And Uncle Tom wants to pave over Toontown for the good of the humans.

Reports say that Hoskins died because he actually watched his last movie, “Snow White and the Huntsman.”  Understandable.

This hit goes to: Team Sushi!  Yes, they are finally on the board!  And I believe that they quoted Hoskin’s Wall character when they said, “Fuck me!”

Happy pooling,
