    Default "Super Mario Bros." movie star Bob Hoskins has died...

    ...of pneumonia, probably related to Parkinson's disease.

    All the decent movies this guy was in, and you attach him to "Super Mario Brothers"?

    I mean:
    Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
    The Wall
    Brazil
    The Long Good Friday
    Mona Lisa

    etc

    You might as well define Sean Connery by "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" or "Highlander 2."


    EDIT: I see now Hoskins got an Oscar Best Actor nod for Mona Lisa.

    And Dennis Hopper got one for Super Mario Bros. In fact, here's the clip they showed at the ceremony:

    I think I still love him in "Brazil" as the maniacal corporate AC fixer.

    (And Robert DeNiro as his nemesis Harry Tuttle, rogue AC repairman at large.)

    No. The Avengers (1998).

    What a shame. I liked him as the bumbling Smee in Hook.
    Now, I think I know what you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free
    They would not listen, they're not listening still
    Perhaps they never will...

    Not only is Christopher Lloyd still alive, but he has a cameo as Doc Emmett Brown in the upcoming Seth MacFarlane comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West. I'd link you to the trailer, but it's such a headache to do on mobile devices.
