Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman "Leaks His Imminent Death" in Final Red Carpet Interviews at Sundance Film Festival

He starts @ 4:30

“It’s (God’s Pocket) a film about a man who is faced by an adult decision ultimately and he grows up. It’s not about adolescence it’s about a guy who has to deal with being an adult and It’s hard. He’s living with a world that is pretty shady and he grows up.”
Talking about his film characters: “…eventually you come to a day and say this is really difficult. Sometimes you think the things will be easy, you think it isn’t easy at all.”
Talking about the God’s Pocket character: “He’s my age and I think he’s dealing with issues that have to do with issues being middle-aged. You realize some choices you made along the way have to change or else you’re just going to kind of stay in the dark.”

Philip Seymour Hoffman, Actor, Dies at 46 [Sad]


Philip Seymour Hoffman, perhaps the most ambitious and widely admired American actor of his generation, who gave three-dimensional nuance to a wide range of sidekicks, villains and leading men on screen and embraced some of the theater’s most burdensome roles on Broadway, died Sunday at an apartment in Greenwich Village. He was 46.

The death, apparently from a drug overdose, was confirmed by the police. Mr. Hoffman was found in the apartment by a friend, David Bar Katz, who became concerned after being unable to reach him.

Investigators found a syringe in his left forearm, at least two plastic envelopes with what appeared to be heroin near where his body was found in a bathroom, and five empty plastic envelopes in a trash bin, a law-enforcement official said.

Very sad.

He was an amazing actor. I most recently saw him in The Master and while I didn't particularly like the film, his acting skills really show through in it.

What a shame. RIP.
