    Bob Hoskins

    Post by New England Ram on Wed 08 Aug 2012, 5:30 pm

    BRITISH movie star Bob Hoskins has been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, he announced today.
    The veteran actor - whose four decade film career includes The Long Good Friday and Who Framed Roger Rabbit - revealed he was told he had the degenerative disease in the autumn.
    The 69 year-old used the announcement to call time on his acting career.
    Hoskins' agent announced the news in a statement on the actor's behalf: "Bob Hoskins wishes to announce that he will be retiring from acting, following his diagnosis of Parkinson's disease last autumn.
    "He wishes to thank all the great and brilliant people he has worked with over the years, and all of his fans who have supported him during a wonderful career.
    "Bob is now looking forward to his retirement with his family, and would greatly appreciate that his privacy be respected at this time."
    Hoskins' first role was back in 1972 when he had a cameo in Up Pompeii spin-off film, Up The Front.
    He went on to star in a range of roles over the years ranging from gritty gangster films to comedy roles — and he even had a stint as Badger in a 2006 remake of Wind In The Willows.
    He was seen earlier this year playing one of the seven dwarves in Snow White & The Huntsman starring Twilight babe Kristen Stewart.
    Parkinson's Disease affects one in every 500 people in the UK - a massive 127,000 - according to the charity Parkinson's UK.
    The disease, which slows down movement, has no known cure.
    Other famous sufferers include Back To The Future star Michael J Fox and boxer Muhammad Ali




    Sad news been a brilliant actor.
