“Jew Watch” isn’t exactly a reliable source. Bob Hoskins is quoted as saying he’s not Jewish here

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/middle_east/article1431766.ece

“Actor Bob Hoskins stayed in one during the 1967 Six-Day War: “I was very good at ploughing. I loved it — and the birds were amazing. I was happy being a kibbutznik but they said to me ‘You gotta join the army’ and I said ‘But I’m not Jewish’, and they said ‘It don’t matter’, so I left.” “

So did Sigourney Weaver and Simon Le Bon. That doesn’t make them Jewish.

Jew Watch is an anti-Semitic propaganda site that gets a lot of things wrong. There’s no credible evidence that Bob Hoskins is Jewish.
