Saw this on twitter and entertained the hope that it might be another hoax. But it was soon confirmed. A terrible loss to the world of acting and the cinema - he was a colossal talent. RIP.

Oh man! I'm shocked!

I didn't know he was struggling with addiction.

Terrible News and way to premature if indeed true, though it looks like it is.

However, taking a look at this puts matters back into perspective.

^ Maybe but I see that differently, just think among all those numbers we all knew who Phillip Seymour Hoffman was, that's pretty amazing.

This is really shocking news. The drug-overdose report isn't confirmed, but this does feel like Heath Ledger all over again. Why do we tolerate an entertainment industry that puts creative talent under so much stress that they're driven to drug abuse over and over again? We need to find a way to reform the system -- and maybe reform the way we in the audience treat and talk about actors, often forgetting that they're human beings with vulnerabilities of their own.

The thing is, Mockingjay Part 1 & 2 have been shooting back-to-back since September and aren't completed yet. How much of Hoffman's material they've already shot is unknown at present.

We need to get better with mental health in this country and this is another reminder. Still reeling from the news.

Re: Philip Seymour Hoffman found dead

The first movie I thought of when I just found out the news was his role in Twister. It was a fun movie that wasn't award worthy or anything like that, but I really liked his role in that film, as well as Moneyball. He will be missed.

Aw man. Hoffman was one of my favorite actors. This is just shocking and depressing to me.

Re: Philip Seymour Hoffman found dead

I've just read the NY Post's article and apparently the needle was still in his arm when he was found. This really sucks on so many levels. He was one of the greatest actors on this planet. To see how he throws this incredible talent away because of drugs makes me angry. Even worse if he actually started to fight his addiction. Still, it's also very sad. Must be horrible for the family.

"The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with someone else when we're uncool."

One of Cameron Crowe's best lines in Cameron Crowe's best movie, and Hoffman sold it perfectly.

I wasn't aware that he had problems with drugs. It's a punch to the gut to see the results of addiction come into the open so suddenly again.

Yep. I've seen him in so many great performances, but I always go back to when he played Dusty in Twister. That was my favorite role of his. Such a shame that he's gone, and won't be able to bring any more wonderful characters to life.

Maybe sometime, but until he's good and ready, may he play the hell out of many more awesomely f'ed up roles in Valhalla's theatres.

Sometimes the smallest roles were the most fun. Rest in peace, Achiever.
