BREAKING: Academy Award Winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead

Philip Seymour Hoffman won the Best Actor Oscar in 2006

This came as a shocker.  One of my favorite actors, if not THE best character actor of this generation, Academy Award Winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his apartment in Greenwich Village, New York City on 2 February.  He was 46.

According to CNN, the police reports noted that he died of an apparent drug overdose.

Police said Hoffman, 46, was found on the bathroom floor and pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators found two bags of what is believed to be heroin inside the fourth-floor apartment, law enforcement officials said.

Hoffman was last seen alive at 8 p.m. Saturday, a law enforcement official said. He was expected to get his children on Sunday, but didn’t show up, the official said.Playwright David Katz and another person went to the apartment and found him dead, the official said.

A needle was in the actor’s left arm, and eight empty glassine-type bags that usually contain heroin were found in the apartment, law enforcement sources told CNN.

The bags were stamped with “Ace of Hearts” and “Ace of Spades” — street names for the heroin, the sources said.

I just could not believe that with all of the achievements and success he has received in his entire career by his peers in the business that he would end his life like this.  In an interview with “60 Minutes,” he revealed that he had given up drugs and alcohol many years earlier.  But last year, he checked into a rehabilitation program for about 10 days after a reliance on prescription pills resulted in his briefly turning again to heroin.  This is a realization that drug addiction can only do you wrong.

Hoffman made his debut on the big screen via Scent of a Woman and since then he had been cast in roles that were dark, dense, complicated, and nothing short three-dimensional.

Hoffman won an Academy Award in 2006 for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his role in the film “Capote,” in which he portrayed the author Truman Capote.

He was also nominated for the Academy Award for Actor in a Supporting Role three times for his scene-stealing roles, one in the 2012 film “The Master,” in the 2008 film “Doubt,” and the 2007 film “Charlie Wilson’s War.”  He also recently had a role in the hugely popular “The Hunger Games” films as the unpredictable Game Maker Plutarch Heavensbee.  Reportedly he only had 7 days of shooting for the franchise’s final film, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2,” but now that he is gone, the production has yet to come up with a statement.

He also starred in several critically-acclaimed movies like The Talented Mr. Ripley (one of my favorite movies of all time), Patch Adams, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Moneyball.  He is truly brilliant in whatever he’s done and he is definitely a big loss for the movie industry.  Hollywood is an infinitely less-interesting place without this highly versatile A-lister.

If you want to pursue a career in acting, look up to his body of work and I tell you, you will be inspired to do better.  Rest In Peace Mr. Hoffman, you are truly a Master of the screen.
