British actor Bob Hoskins, whose varied career ranged from “Mona Lisa” to “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” has died aged 71.

A family statement released on Wednesday by publicist Clair Dobbs said Hoskins died in a hospital after a bout of pneumonia.

A versatile character actor capable of menace, poignancy and Cockney charm, Hoskins appeared in some of the most acclaimed British films of the past few decades, including gangster classic “The Long Good Friday.”

In 2012 Hoskins announced that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and was retiring from acting.
