NYTimes- The actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment on Sunday morning of an apparent drug overdose, according to a law enforcement official who requested anonymity because he was not certain the actor’s family had been informed of the death. The official said Mr. Hoffman, 46, was found in his West Village apartment around 11:30 a.m. by a friend who had become concerned at not being able to reach Mr. Hoffman. Investigators found a syringe in his arm and an envelope containing what is believed to be heroin, the official said. “It’s pretty apparent that it was an overdose,” the official said. “The syringe was in his arm.” Mr. Hoffman won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in the 2005 film “Capote,” in which he portrayed the writer Truman Capote. He had undergone treatment for drug addiction in the past, and spoke in interviews about “falling off the wagon” last year after remaining clean for 23 years.

Normally we make light of most situations here at Blown Call, but this is really shitty news. Philip Seymour Hoffman was great in everything he did, whether it was a slapstick comedy, Along Came Polly, or a biography about a very strange writer, Capote, the guy was amazing. He had the uncanny ability to blend into any character he wanted and you always felt he was that guy when you watched him. It’s very sad he went so young and to such a terrible disease, we can only wish the best for his family during this horrible time. The film industry and the world itself just lost a great one. Rest in Peace.
