R.I.P. Phillip Seymour Hoffman (1967-2014)

Reports are coming in that Oscar-winning director/actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his Greenwhich Village apartment earlier today. He was only 46 years old...

Although, the full story of what happened to him has not been officially released yet, multiple sources are reporting he was found dead with a needle still in his arm. The New York Times cited law enforcement stated " “Investigators found a syringe in his arm and an envelope containing what is believed to be heroin.” 

He was found by close friend, screenwriter David Kraz, who was worried when he couldn't get in touch with Hoffman. Substance abuse is known with Hoffman, who had previously checked into rehab last summer to battle it. 

He will be remembered as one of the greatest actors of this generation with roles other than Oscar-winning Capote. He has a screen presents that will shock and awe anyone who watches this man perform. He made characters, that were forgettable, memorable for all. Reports are saying he only had 7 days left of filming of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and 2. They will be released on set dates. 

He will be greatly missed.
