Title: Philip Seymour Hoffman found dead
Post by: Снупс on February 02, 2014, 09:31:36 PM
Apparently from a drug overdose. This sucks...he's such an amazing actor. I hate that these amazing people get into that sort of stuff. These kinds of unexpected deaths are the worst...where you read it and have a minor emotional breakdown because it's so out of nowhere and you know you'll never see this person's work again.

I'm not gonna write up a cheesy obituary because I really hate them, but he was in amazing movies like "The Master", he played Truman Capote in "Capote", and generally just did amazing work. Even when he was in not-so-great films he was a highlight.

I wonder what they're going to do with the next two Hunger Games films now, since he died while filming it and his character is very important...ugh, what a horrible day. I'll miss him and all.

Yeah, I was surprised by this too. He's in a lot of great films and I always enjoyed his performance.

I am very saddened by this. He was one of my very favorite actors. I agree that he was a highlight in films that were not so great.

That joke doesn't even make sense in this context.  You sacrificed good taste for humor and achieved neither.  Well done.

It really sucks that you can have more money than you'd ever need, a family, and still not get enough satisfaction from your life to keep you from killing yourself with drugs.

An awful tragedy. Hoffman was a truly a great.

In even more tragic news, Jessie Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor.

So much butthurt. The movie is probably going to be crap regardless. Also, derailed.

That seems like a reasonable casting choice, bearing in mind that this is the movie in which Ben Affleck plays Batman.

ITT: Good actors die.  Bad actors play DC characters.

In high profile cases like this surely the authorities must have some idea who supplies the drugs to these people.

Why?  I would imagine police pay very little attention to white collar drug abuse.
