The acclaimed actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman is dead. His death at the age of 46 may have been the result of a possible drug overdose. He was a depth actor and a sensitive soul who had been struggling with drug addiction for awhile.

He was a very versatile actor. Having played many roles in a wide variety of movies, he had vision and true thespian ability. The number of bad guys and partnership characters he had portrayed onscreen showed the level of respect he garnered. 

An ideal displayer of depth in acting, Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away due to a heroin overdose awhile back in his apartment. The police forces are ready for a postmortem report that will reveal the exact cause of death. But for all purposes it appears to be nothing other than drug abuse. Six vials of heroin were found alongside his sprawled unconscious body in his apartment’s washroom. 

Not only was Hoffman a Broadway hit, he commanded recognition for the difficult characters he depicted on the silver screen. Hoffman cut a rough and tough figure. He may have been slightly on the heavier side, but otherwise he was a handsome, blonde fellow who appeared almost kind of cute due to his good looks. He preferred a laidback image and didn’t comb his hair much either. Often he could be seen sporting two day old stubble on his face.

Especially for the way he focused on his roles in “Death of a Salesman” and “Capote” Hoffman deserves nothing but praise. The man was a fine and meticulous actor with an eye for detail. His family which he has left behind misses him more than ever. Hoffman’s death is tragic beyond belief. Had he lived American cinema would have benefited immensely from the services of this talented thespian.
