Philip Seymour Hoffman, Actor, Dies at 46 – – very, very, sad


“He’s a local. He’s a fixture in this neighborhood,” said Christian McCulloch, 39, who said that he lives nearby. “You see him with his kids in the coffee shops, he is so sweet. It’s desperately sad.”

At a short distance from the crowd, two men who identified themselves as friends embraced, sobbing.

    I cannot “like” this post, but I will commiserate with you. When I read about this elsewhere an hour ago, I was shocked. Still am. He was a great actor.

    So upsetting. He really was a fine, fine actor.

    Reblogged this on The Artistic Packrat and commented:
    So terrible and shocking. I’ve liked him for many years. Sad he lost his decades long battle with drugs. Caught him on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson a couple years ago. They talked about his stage work a little bit. The guy, while laid-back, seemed so passionate about his work, about acting and directing and storytelling. Also, came off like an extremely down-to-earth and nice guy. Truly a great loss. R.I.P.

    Oh, I was going to shoot you a message about this before bathtime. Shocking. My response when I saw it on an entertainment site was almost identical to teamgloria’s. I’m thinking of his children in particular, so terrible that drugs took him. *sigh*

    Can’t believe it! Man, I didn’t know he had troubles with drugs. Damn!

    So sad. So senseless. Another tragic waste of a life.

    Not good 🙁 Was watching him in a re-run of Doubt, just the other night.

    I went to Tisch’s NYU with him although didn’t know him personally. I have the highest respect for his extraordinary craftsmanship, fearlessness and subtlety. May his work live on. I am deeply, deeply saddened by this loss.

    What a deeply sad day.
    For contemporary American cinema, which is not known for its character actors of note, and he was surely one of the first order.
    But most of all for the man and his family.
    One feels for their sorrow and the waste.
    Yours ever
