I was sad to see that Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead today at his apartment.
I think it is a great shame to lose someone who had so much talent. He was one of my favorite actors, who was able to give such depth to every character that he played that you often knew that you knew who he was but couldn't quite place him from where because he was just that good that he let you see the character before the actor and that is pretty rare.
He really was far too young and had to much more to give! I was really looking forward to some of his upcoming movies and it is hard to believe they will be no more.
Last week, in a bizarre turn, Philip Seymour Hoffman was the victim of a hoax that spread around the internet and had him declared dead and then good, fine, alive and well by his PR people and so this news, now, had been hard to believe until it was confirmed this afternoon.
Sad and a shame.
