    Philip Seymour Hoffman RIP

    Very sad news this morning that Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away Sunday. I thought he was a fine character actor, able to play many different types of roles. He was only 46 years old...

    I thought he was one of the best actors of his generation. Check out "Capote" and "Doubt"? Sad loss for sure.

    He was great in Boogie Nights.

    All I can think of is the scene in the car when he calls himself a f@ckin' idiot over an over...

    holy crap! was he 'Dusty'? I forgot about that.

    He was awesome in Cold Mountain but then again the entire case was unbelievable in that film.

    Sad so young.

    I've seen a lot of movies named that I'd forgotten he was in - like Boogie Nights. My first thought was him playing the sleazy reporter in Red Dragon.

    Another talent gone way too soon.

    Let us not forget "The Big Lebowski."

    He, like the rug, really tied the room together...very sad. Only slightly older than me. Makes one think. RIP.

    I never tried heroin because I was afraid I'd like it too much. Same with cocaine. It's sad he's gone, and it's just a reminder how friggin dangerous it can be.

    That said, there has been a big uptick in heroin related deaths this year so far, something about it being cut with painkillers.

    Yep - they reported double-digit deaths in this area from that. Nasty stuff.

    It is a sad situation when you put a needle in your arm or a glass pipe in your mouth and think you'll be the one who can do it and not become addicted. I have a family member who thought the same and was wrong, lost everything, graduated top in his class in engineering has / had a beautifull wife and 2 kids. Been through rehab at least 5 times and tried the NA thing, I wish him the best of luck now as I have done all that I can monetarily and pyscologically. he just did a 3 month stint in rehab, basically to get out of jail. Maybe it will work this time for all of our sakes, he and his family especially. Another sad example of how drugs can be a very bad thing. RIP Phil you were a great actor.
