Veteran British actor Bob Hoskins has passed away at the age of 71. The versatile actor was known for several tough guy roles like in Mona Lisa — a role that garnered him a Best Actor Academy Award nomination — as well as lighter fare like Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Hook, and Super Mario Bros.. His family released a statement that he died due to complications from pneumonia.

Wario has been ruled out as a suspect.

Well, it wouldn’t be the first time an actor has gotten on their knees for a role. Universal has offered Bob Hoskins, Eddie Izzard, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, and Steven Graham roles as warrior dwarves in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman. They are so going to band together and kick Charlize Theron’s ass.

From yesterday’s report that Ian McShane was cast as the dwarf leader, Caesar, you can gather that these aren’t the cartoonish dwarves we’re all accustomed to. Hoskins will play the blind dwarf, Constantine, Izzard will play the burly Tiberius, and Jones will play Claudius, the quiet one.

So that gives us six out of the seven dwarves and if I’m spotting a trend in the casting, Ricky Gervais will be the next to join. Which would be totally messed, you guys. YOU KNOW that he and Warwick Davis are besties. (THR)
