He was this guy:
From the New York Times
"Mr. Hoskins received a number of prestigious acting awards over his four-decade career, including the Bafta award, the Golden Globe and the Cannes Film Festival prize as best actor for Mona Lisa, in which he played an ex-convict hired by a crime boss to act as chauffeur and bodyguard for a high-priced call girl (Cathy Tyson).
He also received an International Emmy Award for episodes of The Street (2009); the Canadian Genie Award for the director Atom Egoyan’s Felicia’s Journey (1999), based on the William Trevor novel; and a Screen Actors Guild nomination as part of the cast of Oliver Stone’s Nixon (1995) in which he played J. Edgar Hoover.”
He was 71.
The Ultimate Warrior
According to the Washington Post, “Heralded as the man who made personality a full-on requirement of wrestling showmanship, he was inducted into WWE’s Hall of Fame over the weekend. …He wasn’t the first to develop and commit to a character — “Classy” Freddie Blassie and Hulk Hogan, among many others, did it too — but he turned it into an art form.”
I was a fan of wrestling but The Ultimate Warrior wasn’t a personal favorite of mine, he took himself a little too seriously and I liked goofier characters. Still, this mofo knew how to commit.
He was 54.
