Actor. He will perhaps be best remembered for his Oscar nominated role as 'George' in the picture "Mona Lisa" (1987) and for playing 'Private Detective Eddie Valian' in the animated-action film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" (1988). Raised in North London, his father was a clerk, his mother was a cook, he was not a good student and dropped out of school at the age of fifteen. He worked at numerous odd-jobs which included a fire-eater at a circus until his engaging personality provided opportunities for him to pursue acting as a career. He acquired experience in Shakespearean plays at regional theaters and launched his television and film career during the early 1970s. Among one of Hoskins' early impressionable achievements was his playing of gangster 'Harold Shand' in the film "The Long Good Friday."
