The talented Philip Seymour Hoffman has died. He was 46 years old.
1967 – 2014
Hoffman died from a suspected overdose on drugs. Investigations are ongoing.
I remember him as the hardworking but very jealous medical student roommate of Robin Williams’ Patch Adams in the film of the same title. He is also darn good as the antagonist in Mission Impossible 3 as well as the American writer Truman Capote. It was his delicious portrayal of Capote which made me a Hoffman convert.
I have not watched The Master but I would probably do so now.
It is on many fans and admirers’ minds the number of Oscar-worthy roles he might have the chance to play if he should live on.
Lord have mercy on his soul.
