Philip Seymour Hoffman, an Academy Award-winning actor, died from an apparent drug over dose at his home in New York City. He was 46.
Slashfilm has a bit more on the actor’s career. I’m not even sure what my favorite Hoffman role has been over the years because he’s been darn good in everything he has ever done. He played a perfect douchbag rich kid in ‘Scent of a Woman’ early in his career and recently killed it as games-maker Plutarch Heavensbee in ‘Catching Fire’. Perhaps his work with Paul Thomas Anderson — especially ‘The Master’ — will be his defining legacy. For me, I’ll take him performance in ‘Almost Famous’ any day of the week.
This sucks. He was one of the good ones.
