WSJ and KFI reporting that the great actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman has been found dead in his NY apt.
Sorry that I couldn’t find an actual link. Twitter going crazy. KFI has reported it in their hard news segments twice.
46 yrs old. RIP. Great actor.
Saw that “according to NYC police, his death was related to drugs.”
Way too young.
He was good in that movie about Truman Capote
Thanks. You don’t get better actors than him.
Prolly OD’d on marijuana.
Have I mentioned that I hate addiction?
A dopehead in Greenwich Village died of an overdose?
Not the first time that’s ever happened.
I can’t remember him in a role that didn’t impress me. I just saw him interviewed last week and he looked pretty ragged. He’s one of the very few actors I’ll actually miss.
Bad news. We just watched “The Master” last week, good actor.
I know. Was reading the twitter feed and one person said his family saw him on such a such street in NYC yesterday, and Phillip high fived one of them. How sad.
And I just saw the hideous film Wolf of Wall Street last night — Scorcese seems to be glorifying the drug excesses of the 80s in it. I agree with the precious poster - addiction is evil.
I suppose I can say I have never seen a movie or TV program he acted in.
Never heard of him until now.
Too bad. Drugs are for young people.
Did you see Moneyball?
What a shame. He was extremely talented. But he definitely seemed like the type that this would happen to for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on.
He is very, very good. He was an asset to any movie he was ever in. He disappeared into his roles but bore scrutiny well. Look for his films and admire.
Oh my. Found with a needle in his arm.
Apparently he had drug problems back in college, and in 2012 found himself addicted to pills. Seems like it was the opiates he was addicted to.
Can happen to the best of them; remember it happened to Rush Limbaugh.
I’ve been in bed post brain surgery crying because I couldn’t have another shot of morphine, so I get it. I really wanted it for the pain, but there was a strong pull toward it too. And I don’t fall prey to addictive substances.
Sounds like he got ahold of some of this, its been piling up bodies in Pittsburgh
The Satanists in Hollywood have a way with leading the souls of those they seduce, into a false, addictive “happiness”, which is just a fraud and a worship of Lucifer and self and completely empty. It is nihilism and always ends the same way, when their gifts are not used to glorify God and Truth, but used to promote Satanism/nihilism/idolatry. Happiness is never possible without Virtue and God. There is no Hope or Love without God/Truth.
Too bad the Christian Churches have allowed the government to force out Christian Ideology (Truth/Virtue) from the schools and public square. Government has taken away religious freedom from Christians—but not the freedom of Satanists/Lucifereans to preach in the schools and public square, so that people are completely ignorant and seduced, because children are bred and conditioned and brainwashed on Hollywoods illusions of “happiness”/Truth which is false/lies. An artificial, soul-destroying world without Love.
We need to take back the culture from the godless. Phillip Seymour Hoffman was obviously torn and lost-—and his Reality/Truth was totally skewed and distorted by lies, that could not fill his Soul. Nihilism is the “End” of the world with no God. Our toxic culture is exactly like the vulgar Weimar Republic because of Hollywood/media and the public schools. They threw out God and all our Traditions and Ideology which founded the greatest nation of all time.
I’m confused . Some links are saying this is a hoax. http://en.mediamass.net/people/philip-seymour-hoffman/deathhoax.html
A man has to know his limits.
ACTOR PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN, RIP.. It’s so sad that some can’t cope with success in life, yet show so much strength and promise in achieving it..
What a waste.
Pray for his soul.
I wonder who his replacement will be in the next Hunger Games?
It’s been too many years since I left the glitz of Hollywood behind, but one thing hasn’t changed, too many find it harder to accept success, and maintain it, than it was to achieve it..
They surround themselves with people that are only drawn by the bright lights, and not the heat that accompanies that flame.. RIP to a brilliant young actor, I pray he found his peace..
Wikipedia has taken note and has updated their article accordingly.
So brilliant that he died of a self administered heroin overdose.
I’m sorry to hear this. I liked his acting. RIP.
Interesting you found this. Both Fox and CNN are saying he’s dead.
An actor dead from of a drug overdose in Greenwich Village?
Nah, can’t be.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
This really pains me, I love him on every level he had me follow him to.
Big, Big, BIG loss. Prayers for his family, friends, colleagues, us, everybody.
Hoffman, you were good at your craft and made us think. Will be missing you forever as I watch films you’re in.
What a shame. Great character actor. RIP.
I always liked his acting too but he’s had a bad drinking and drug habit over the years. He goes on the wagon then gets off. I guess this time, he’s not getting back on. This should be a lesson to anyone who thinks you can dabble in drugs and alcohol without risk.
and BTW it was “accidental”....
How do you fill your body with poison, on your own, by your own free will, and call it accidental?
Sounds like suicide to me.
“Ive been in bed post brain surgery crying because I couldnt have another shot of morphine, so I get it. I really wanted it for the pain, but there was a strong pull toward it too.”
Yeah, I had oxycondin (?) prescribed because I broke my elbow during a fall on super slippery ice about a month ago. It was incredible—the pain disappeared. I didn’t get goofy, but I could actually move my arm and brush my hair. I can see how certain substances would be incredibly addictive. And I am a bit prone to that. Any sort of narcotics or tranquilizers that are prescribed to me, I use as few of them as possible. And yet... I want it.... there is a pull like that.
