Just gutted. He was good in everything he did, even silly films like Twister. One of the few actors of this generation who could really be called great.

Well, shit. I don't follow celebrities' private lives so I had no idea he had that kind of problem. When you saw his name in the credits, you knew you'd get something a little extra special. I'll miss seeing him.

Man, what a shame. He was terrific in everything he did, but my favorites roles of his would probably be Doubt, Capote, and, yes, MI:3, where he played one of the best villains ever.

Shit. This is so sad on every level. Such a colossal acting talent. The guy could turn junk into art simply with a few minutes of his screen presence.
^ My thoughts exactly . So sad and so tragic. The man was really talented. Any human issues aside, he was a really good actor. May he RIP. Condolences go out to his family and friends. He'll be missed.

It's being reported that he was in the apartment with screenwriter David Katz working on a script. Katz was the one who found him dead. Thank God it wasn't his wife or one of his young children who found him.

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.
You've got to be kidding.

Wow. RIP. The guy was a great actor.

Hopefully they have enough footage of him for Mockingjay 1 and 2. It would be a shame if they have to recast one of his last major roles.

Re: Philip Seymour Hoffman found dead

I just can't believe this. His death gave me the same instant shock as James Gandolfini's death. I've always considered Philip Seymour Hoffman to be one of the best actors of all time. I've seen many of his films. Synedoche, New York, Charlie Wilson's War, Mission Impossible 3, The Savages, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead. An absolute memorable delight in all of them. Now I won't be seeing much of that in the future. The thought of that both saddens and angers me.

RIP. Very sad. We're the same age so 46 is way too young to go.

Uh... yeah. Drugs drive people to drug abuse. I'm all for reining in our paparazzo-celebrity culture, but to implicate the general public in any way for those two deaths is ludicrous.

Cue: Casting Speculation for Hunger Games Sequel.
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.
That's sad about PSH. It will be interesting to see what they do with Mockingjay 1 & 2.
