I don't know about you, but this celebrity death is a big one for me. Hoskins will be remembered more for playing Eddie Valiant in Roger Rabbit, but he was an all around great actor. He played everything from Iago to Smee to Mussolini to Churchill to J. Edgar Hoover.
Plus, anybody who cheerfully describes themselves as "5'6" and cubic" is pretty cool IMHO.
ETA my favorite role of his was actually tiny, as a snarky maintenance worker in Brazil.
