Bob starred in the 1988 hit, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which earned him the second Golden Globe nomination of his career.

In the early days, he took on a variety of jobs (including a porter, banana picker and circus fire-eater) before moving into acting at the age of 25. A member of The Royal Shakespeare Company, he began on the stage at the National Theatre before making his movie debut in 1972 with a minor role in the comedy Up the Front.
