R.I.P. Phillip Seymour Hoffman: America Has Lost One of Its Finest Actors

An excellent post that sums up the tragic loss of a great talent.

Killing Time

Phillip Seymour Hoffman

It seems inconceivable, but Phillip Seymour Hoffman is gone.  One of America’s finest actors for over 20 years, Hoffman was found today by police deceased in his apartment.  No official cause of death has been given, but the immediate assumption given Hoffman’s revelation that he was battling heroin addiction last year is that his death is in some way related to that most vicious of drugs.  Below is the official obituary from Variety, brief because this literally happened within the last two hours:

Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment on Sunday. He was 46.

Law enforcement officials said Hoffman died at his apartment in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan. No cause of death has been determined but officials suspect the actor may have overdosed on drugs. The New York Post reported the actor was found with a needle in his arm.
