Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Actor. (b. Oct. 26, 1942, Bury St. Edmunds, England.) Balding, stocky supporting player and character lead whose pugnacious manner and Cockney accent make him instantly distinctive. Hoskins worked only sporadically in the 1970s, beginning withThe National Health (1973). He was notable as the porno king inInserts (1976) and as the doomed salesman in the original British TV version of Dennis Potter's "Pennies From Heaven" (1979). His breakthrough role was that of the mob boss whose world crumbles around him inThe Long Good Friday (1980), though it temporarily typed him as a gangster. Hoskins made American audiences sit up and take notice of his performance as Owney Madden inThe Cotton Club (1984), and won Best Actor honors at Cannes as well as an Oscar nomination as the put-upon hood inMona Lisa (1986). He was, however, smart enough to vary his roles, and turned in splendid work as the cloying screenwriter inSweet Liberty (1986), the pathetic suitor inThe Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne a priest inA Prayer for the Dying (both 1987), a bigoted L.A. cop inHeart Condition a nurturing shoe salesman inMermaids (both 1990), an eccentric private eye inShattered and a grizzled Mr. Smee opposite Dustin Hoffman inHook (both 1991). In 1988 he starred in the smash hit Who Framed Roger Rabbit and made his writing/directing debut on The Raggedy Rawney. Other credits include the TV movie Mussolini: The Decline and Fall of Il Duce (1985, as Mussolini), Passed Away (1992), Super Mario Bros (1993), and World War II: When Lions Roared (1994, telefilm, as Churchill).
