Award-winning Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead in Manhattan Apartment
Obligatory Movie House thread.
Really sucks seeing these guys I grew up with die. James Gandolfini and now Philip Seymour Hoffman. These guys were too young and too damn good.
Fucking really tied that movie together, man...

Yes, posting random pictures of celebrities is clearly working through your feelings over the death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. More like just being fucking stupid and following the bandwagon of a years old meme that someone more clever than him came up with and probably stopped using once it became overplayed.
It's sad but really these fucking dumb actors and their drugs. Just bring it on themselves.
Let's hope it's some hoax...
what the fuck! i loved this guy's stuff. very sad news
Hoffman is one of my favorite actors, ah well.
Also Fuck James Gandolfini, how dare you bring that peasant up in the same thread as the "master".

Fuck me, one of the better actors of our generation =-/.
No sympathy. Did it to himself.
Very unfortunate, he was an amazing actor whose work I enjoyed emensly.
Did they finish filming of Hunger Games 7 already?
oderint dum metuant
man heroin must be a helluva drug if a dude who has pretty much everything you could want in life still dies to heroin
hunger games 3 just started filming about a month ago so they will probably have to recast the part
Why do people do hard drugs and think it will end well?
He had already been through recovery for alcohol in the past. I guess he decided if he was going to fall off the wagon he was going all out.
At least he was in the best of the Mission Impossibles
Amazing actor with the ability to steal a movie with his roles, but fuck, heroin? >_<
Another thing about being a prolific character who has a history of drug abuse is that everywhere you go people want to do your drug of choice with you just for the sake of 'getting high with philip fucking seymour hoffman'. Even though money probably wasn't a concern all the logistics of getting a hold of the drug and setting everything up is completely replaced by some guy who is goadding and tempting you into doing something you're addicted to in the worst way.
The biggest problem with mostly the absolute best actors, musicians and comedians, is that they are absolute basket cases, and they grab anything that can take their mind off of things. Only a handfull can live without anti depressants, copious amounts of alcohol, morfine, heroin, and whatnot. But the true geniuses are doped up to their eyeballs.
I think, when they finally get past those years of rejection and hearing they aren't good enough, they just cannot enjoy their success.
Bummer. The guy was amazing in most of his roles.
We have too few great American actors under the age of 80. It's sad to lose another big one.
NOOO! He was one of my favorite actors!
Some bad heroin going around the area lately, wonder if this was from the same batch?

Where is Tuco to janitor up chaos's vagina blood leaking all over this thread?
Seriously, get the fuck over yourself chaos.
i actually agree with chaos, the joke pics really dont belong here.
I have a hard time caring when celebrities OD. He, of all people, knew the risks.
Not to be heartless, but lots of people die, people that are not self inflicting it upon themselves. Sure, his movies were excellent, but come on, top-tier acting doesn't excuse drug overdose in my world.
edit - fucking typos DRUID

I don't care when people feel the need to tell everyone that they don't care when celebrities die.
I came for the "rip in peace" and fake celebrity pictures. Thread delivers.
Just like hoffman does.
rip in peace.
I'm one of those 'Big Lebowski" fan-boys. Yeah hipster movie nerd me.
PSH had a small role, but played it perfectly. So I find this all to be sad . . . and a big waste.
Gifted artists and their stupid fucking vices eh.
Seriously, Happiness is physically painful to watch. He's exceptional in that movie.
Why was there a span of movies... for like 5 years in the late 90's movies were trying to top each other on how relentlessly fucked up they could be. It's like some bizzare reaction to the 80's happy/camp/cheese breakfast club fad.
I remember watcing a lot of them in theaters and coming out of them afterwards it was usually "oh man.. that's so gritty. that's so real." But you go back and watch them and they are the most contrived, manipulated, manipulative scripts. There's nothing real about it. Nothing.
They only worked because of guys like Hoffman here. It wasn't the movies that were good. The movies were shit. But the actors were good enough to sell it.
Happiness was great because it played like a comedy but the themes were dark and disturbing. Its basically daring you to laugh, or daring you not to, IDK.
I find it odd that nobody really acknowledges a lot of actors until they find them dead. Then they're suddenly one of the "greatest of our generation".
Hoffman was entertaining, but come the fuck on. People are so phoney.
Maybe i'm just an asshole but this irks me
That isn't exactly what i'm saying, the point is suddenly he's proclaimed as one of the greatest which is far fetched heh.
Then again I guess it's all subjective opinions and really doesn't matter.
Yeah, I'm not a movie guy at all, but Hoffman was definitely one of the most celebrated actors of the past decade or two. It seemed to really take off with Capote.
Yeah i suppose you're right. When i compare people saying these things regarding him, it certainly makes a lot more sense than people praising somebody like paul walker for the shit he's done.
Admittedly i've never really paid attention to him beyond a few of his silly roles.
Either way, i feel sorry for his kids and wife.. that shit sucks :X
Not taking away from him at all, it's more of a general thing that i noticed when paul walker died lol. Hoffman was really good without a doubt

He didn't get many feature parts. He was getting supporting bit parts, but he was doing them so well that (and maybe he's got a big starring role in a movie I just haven't seen)... he would have done it really well.
Was he our Peter O'Toole? Fuck, nah. But he really was quite good.
After watching far too much of Kevin Pollak's chat show I have got to suspect that he was one of the ones lurking in the wings that could have destroyed shit, but he just didn't win the interview/casting lottery.
It just gets amplified more with celebrities, I guess. By all accounts Walker was a pretty decent guy, but it's doubtful he was the saint that many reports made him out to be.
Nah, it's the genetic lottery. He's kind of fat, not particularly good looking, not very tall, etc etc. He was never meant to be a "leading man" in Hollywood, no matter how much talent he had.Originally Posted by Iannis
He would of been a leading man in niche type movies, but thats it.
I swear if the reports are true, the guy must of been having one hell of a party:
Police also found several empty bags branded "Ace of Hearts" -- a street name for heroin -- in the apartment
Also in the apartment were close to 50 envelopes, branded "Ace of Spades," containing what is believed to be heroin, the two sources said.
• More than 20 used syringes in a plastic cup.
• Several other bags containing white powder.
• Prescription drugs, including the blood-pressure medication clonidine hydrochloride; the addiction-treatment drug buprenorphine; Vyvanse, a drug used to treat attention-deficit (hyperactivity) disorder; hydroxyzine, which can be used to treat anxiety; and methocarbamol, a muscle relaxer.
Selfish fat piece of shit OD's on heroin and everyone is butthurt.
The man had children and decided to do heroin. He deserves no mourning no matter how good he was at his craft.
Yeah pretty bad doing it when you have 3 kids, who I think they said are 10 and under.
Sure man. But he can be a shitty human being and a good actor at the same time. They are not mutually exclusive things.
Plenty of good human beings that can't act for shit.
scientology killed him for making the movie The Master, dont fuck with tom cruise
i wont go so far as to say he was the best actor ever, but whenever you see him pop up in a movie it was always a pleasure. he was great in Doubt.
When I think of him I always think of him in The Talented Mr Ripley for some reason.
People that aren't perfect shouldn't be mourned.
Da fuck happen to my replys
NEVERMINE I GOT THIS
Yes because once you're a parent you magically become immune to any problems you may have developed earlier in life.
ITT random TMZ tea party trolls shitting on another "filthy heroin addict artist found dead in Manhattan" because drugs are only lethal in NY.
Shh. He's high. Also from france.
You'll get collateral pussy just taking a French or British guy around to parties. Don't fuck it up.
Edit: Strangely not German or Scandinavian though. That's an entirely different vibe.

Some local talent to set the mood. (If management counts as local :P)
fentanyl laced H may have been the culprit.
Lot of pussies in this thread that have never done hard drugs. Heroin is awesome, PSH died like a G.
