In the type of story that always seems to surface on Sunday mornings when you least expect it, Phillip Seymour Hoffman has been found dead in his NYC apartment. Deadline and other outlets are reporting a drug overdose, which would be consistent with his 2013 entry into rehab for heroin addiction.
Beginning with his work in Scent of a Woman, Hoffman was one of the most decorated character actors in Hollywood, serving as P.T. Anderson regular, and most recently making himself known to the little ones as the rebel gamemaker in Hunger Games.
Myself? I liked his movie-stealing turn as Lester Bangs in Almost Famous.
No further significant details are known at the time, but this news presumably will make a lot of people very sad.
Little else is known right now
