    Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead

    http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/...ightTopStories

    Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead of an apparent drug overdose late Sunday morning in his New York City apartment, authorities said.Law-enforcement officials said a hypodermic needle and two glassine envelopes containing what is believed to be heroin were found in the apartment on Bethune Street in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.
    The 46-year-old actor was found unconscious in the bathroom of his fourth floor apartment in the Pickwick House around 11:15 a.m. by screenwriter David Katz, who called 911, a law-enforcement official said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
    Mr. Hoffman was last seen around 8 p.m. Saturday, the official said. He was supposed to pick up his children Sunday morning and, when he didn't, Mr. Katz and a friend went to check on him, the official said
    The New York Police Department is investigating, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is working to determine the exact cause of death.

    He was such a good actor. Also, who's going play him in the next 2 Hunger Games movies?

    There must be a lot of bottom feeding leeches that hang around these celebs, you sure as hell know he didn't supply the drugs himself.

    Heard it a few minutes ago on the radio. Pretty sad, he was a good actor.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    This sucks. One of the greatest actors ever. Why couldn't Justin Bieber die instead? Sometimes we can't have nice things.

    Wow so he was a heroin junky. Shocked.

    Great actor.
    I thought he was cold as ice in mission impossible 3 such a contrast to the Brandt he played in The Big lebowski.

    he had already filmed all but 9 days work for both parts of hunger games 3, so they just have to come up with a way of fading him out towards the end i guess.

    very sad, another talent lost too soon, but as others have said, when will hollywood (and the music industry for that matter) learn from tragedies like this and stop working with drug addicts, if they know they will get no work, they have an incentive to be clean. but i know that is just a rhetorical question, because that will never happen.
    Now Playing: PS4!!!!

    He brought this on himself...

    That being said... don't read the spoiler if you can't take a joke because someone died.

    Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2: Unfilmed Philip Seymour Hoffman Scene Poses Challenge

    ccording to inside sources at Lionsgate, prior to his untimely death actor Philip Seymour Hoffman had finished substantially all of his work on the two remaining Hunger Games films, except for “one major, emotional scene left to film in the final installment of the Hunger Games series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.”Hoffman died of an apparent drug overdose on February 2.
    Though no one has said which scene has yet to be filmed, Mockingjay sees Hoffman’s Plutarch Heavensbee character become a close confidant and mentor to protagonist Katniss Everdeen. The same insiders were confident, however, that both Parts 1 and 2 of Mockingjay would still be successfully finished and remain creatively intact without the need to recast Heavensbee. Hoffman reportedly hadabout a week of shooting left before his work on both films was complete.
    http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/02/...oses-challenge

    Hopefully Mockingjay pt 1 and 2 turn out as good as Catching Fire. I'm sure Hoffman's done a great job, as he always has with his other movies.
