Philip Seymour Hoffman reported dead

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s characters often defined “world-weary”.

It often seemed that what others considered to be the normal way that life worked was a burden, and it was an effort even to discuss it.

Hoffman’s performance as Truman Capote was one of the most lauded ever, winning the actor an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA award, and a SAG award, along with many others.

As Plutarch Heavensbee, Hoffman was a featured player in the highest domestic-grossing movie of 2013, and was scheduled to play the role in the remaining two movies in the series.

Other geek friendly work includes:

  • Leap of Faith (starring Steve Martin as an alleged faith healer)
  • My Boyfriend’s Back (zomcom)
  • Magnolia
  • Red Dragon
  • Mission:Impossible III (for which Hoffman was nominated for a Saturn Award)
  • Charlie Kaufman’s Synedoche, New York
  • The Invention of Lying (Ricky Gervais)
  • The Master (one of four Oscar nominations: Capote (winner); Charlie Wilson’s War; Doubt; and The Master)
