by on April 30, 2014

Bob Hoskins, mostly known for playing gangsters and tough guys in his films. His most famous role has to be Eddie Valiant, a detective in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”. But for me, he was Mario!

I was 5 when Super Mario Bros. came out in 1993, and I can still remember the day I saw the film. I was in tears laughing and enjoyed every minute of it. Sure it wasn’t the greatest movie but it sure was amazing to see my video game characters come to life. I remember the prison scene like it yesterday, “Mario Mario, Luigi Mario”.

Thank you for being a part of my childhood Bob Hoskins, R.I.P.
