#RIP: PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN CONFIRMED DEAD AT AGE 46
Only one day after Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams were confirmed to star in his next Film, Ezekiel, Academy Award-winning Actor/Director Philip Seymour Hofman is reported dead.
The 46-year-old Actor who resided in New York was found by a Law Enforcement Official earlier today in his Manhattan Apartment. Hoffman‘s lofty list of cinematic accomplishments include acclaimed Films like Charlie Wilson’s War, The Master, Doubt, Cold Mountain, 25th Hour, Magnolia, Boogie Nights, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Scent of a Woman and more recently he was seen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in which he starred as Plutarch Heavensbee. He moved many with his portrayal of Truman Captoe in 2005, earning him his first Oscar.
Although I’ve long been a Fan of Hoffman‘s, I only managed to see him from afar, snapping the above Photo of him promoting his Film Jack Goes Boating at TIFF ’10. This certainly is a tragedy, although his Legacy certainly will be remembered forever by Cinema Lovers.
Hoffman‘s Cause of Death has yet to be determined.
