Philip Seymour Hoffman's Death - What a Waste of Perfectly Great Talent
Another talented actor dies of a drug overdose. I adored Philip Seymour Hoffman.
He won Best Actor for "Capote." If you've never seen the movie, Hoffman WAS Truman Capote.
I loved him in "Pirate Radio" Just saw it a few weeks ago. Not a new film, but what fun! Based on a true story, it's about the period of time in the 1960s when the British government would not allow radio stations to play rock and roll. Can you believe it? A group of crazy guys found a way around it by broadcasting from a ship.
He was also nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in "Doubt, "starring Meryl Streep. Another great film. Seymour played a priest suspected of having an inappropriate relationship with a boy.
And "Hunger Games" fans will recall his role as Plutarch Heavensby ("Hunger Games: Catching Fire").
Hoffman leaves behind his partner of 15 years, Mimi O'Donnell, and their three children.
