For those wondering about his role in the hunger games, he finished part 1 and had a week left of filming for part 2. I guess those scenes are just gonna be scrapped then since they're saying it won't impact the films release.
Weird that we'll still be seeing him on screen almost two years from now.
You know those news stories you refuse to believe, because it just might be a hoax, and you spend hours on end researching if it really is true?
This was one of those :(
Man, I really wished those sites saying it was a hoax were true. I'm still in disbelief over this, he was such a great actor.
This news came out of nowhere. I wasn't exactly a fan which explains how I had no idea of his heroin past but I found him to be a great actor. Drugs suck.
To anyone not fully convinced of Phillip Seymour Hoffman's genius, look no further than Patch Adams. The movie was absolute shit. Robin Williams plays the same coked-out manchild he plays in everything. The plot is the usual Robin Williams crap. . .Guy that nobody believes in touches your heart by saying random things a mile a minute and yelling, and by the end, he acheives something, and everyone ends up believing in him. The end theme is the shitty Rod Stewart song that ended up being the theme song to Enterprise.
The movie is absolutely fucking unwatchable.
. . .except for the scenes with Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
When his character starts to believe in Patch, you ACTUALLY BELIEVE IT. You find yourself giving a fuck. You see through his eyes. You suddenly agree that Patch Adams is the best damn doctor you've ever seen, and you want to see his clinic become a reality. You find yourself searching your house for red enema bulbs, so you, too, can make a Patch Adams clown nose. You begin to love Robin Williams. You think, "You know, I haven't seen TOYS or JACK in entirely too long! Those movies were awesome! As soon as this movie is over, I'm going to run right out and buy them! On BLU RAY! OH FUCK I LOVE ROBIN WILLIAMS! AND MORK AND MINDY IS THE GREATEST TELEVISION PROGRAM EVER DEVISED BY HUMANS! HE IS ALSO A BRILLIANT STANDUP COMIC, WHO IS IN NO WAY A COKED OUT, FREAKISHLY HAIRY JOKE THIEF OR A HACK!!!" You begin to masturbate furiously, raising blisters on your genitals. You wonder if eating the DVD of POPEYE will bestow magical powers on you. You. . .
. . .and then, Hoffman's scenes are over, and you look down, seeing your hideously chaffed and bloodied penis. At some point, you've carved PATCH ADAMS 4EVER into your thigh with a car key. You don't even own a car. You begin to realize that Hoffman has done it again. That lovably pudgy bastard has done it again. God damn him.
The greatest trick Phillip Seymour Hoffman ever pulled was convincing the world Robin Williams was watchable.
This is just so out of the blue.
I did not expect this at all.
Great actor, gone too soon. RIP
Fuck I didn't know about Phillip's history with drug and alcohol abuse.
This was just so sudden. Another great actor will be missed.
Fuck and I was just watching The Big Lebowski.
Should probably rewatch Capote, sucks that such a great actor had to die so young.
I don't often get bent out of shape when I hear about a celebrity passing.
This is one of those occasions. :(
I really loved him in all of his movies. He was a really good choice in the Hunger Games films, especially, I feel. He had that smug look on his face for like half of Catching Fire. RIP
Fucking just watched Red Dragon on TV, too soon :(
Well shit, I really liked this guy :/
I was watching super troopers the other day, meow he is dead.
Best actor of his generation, one of the best of all time. One of my favourites as well. Worked on some of the greatest films of last decade, and had he lived on longer he'd have made some of the best of this one. And the next... Really tragic. Fuck heroin.
I haven't even watched Catching Fire yet and now I feel like I'm going to be sad every time he comes on screen.
He lives until the end and is appointed Secretary of Communications after the war
He's portrayed as one at first.
While him showing Katniss the mockingjay symbol on his watch is supposed to be a sign he's on her/the resistance side. But since Katniss/the viewers has no idea she and the mockingjay is used as a symbol for the resistance you don't really know that. It's not until they bust Katniss out of the second games that you know he's working with the resistance.
he was incredible in Capote, RIP
In this case, I would guess that he wasn't doing it a bag at a time, but rather dosing himself over the course of a couple days. If he had 50 bags, he was probably looking to stretch it out over a while, but lost control.
here's a good overview of it
50 bags is a lot, but it seems as if he was pretty deep in his addiction. at 3 bags it might be considered a suicide, but that's just me speculating. either way though it's quite tragic, but a very unfortunate reality for heroin addicts.
