    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.

    That's how I felt after Paul Walker died, because there was a death hoax the day before he died I didn't believe he had actually died at first until the real reports came in and there was actual evidence.

    God, this is so sad. What the hell happened to him? He was clean for 23 years before 2012. He went to rehab in 2013. He had three children. What could possibly have caused him to fall back into it that hard?
    Heroin is highly addictive, like probably the worst drug out there. Very hard to ever recover from and not relapse

    But he is pretty important in the film and one of the main antagonists    He is the game master after all   
    He's actually not an antagonist in that movie.

    Or maybe they'll use CGI to replace him? It's not as odd as it sounds -- Gladiator used CGI to complete Oliver Reed/Proximo's role since he died midway through filming, to which they just dedicated the entire film to him.

    The easy way to do it just have a stand in film his remaining scenes and the camera only shows him from the back. Instead of giving the stand in lines to read, just have him nod or shake his head.

    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

    I liked him for his minor role in The Big Lebowski :<
    "Maybe we'll see you again sometime, Dude..." :(

    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.

       He was working with the resistance the whole time. The ending of Catching Fire showed that. And I believe he dies mid-way through Mockingjay according to book lore, iirc.   
    Nope.

       He lives until the end and is appointed Secretary of Communications after the war   


       He's actually not an antagonist in that movie.   
    Technically a spoiler so.

       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.

    Edited:

    Despite Hoffman's death in February 2014, "because most of Mr. Hoffman’s scenes were complete, director Francis Lawrence and his team are said to be confident they can complete filming without the character or the films being substantially changed"
    At least one of his final roles won't have to be changed much

    A search of the home of Philip Seymour Hoffman home turned up used syringes and approximately 50 bags of heroin, according to law enforcement officials.

    Police also found drug paraphernalia and prescription drugs.
    fucking hell he was really going at it

    That would depend on how much 'use' you get per bag, wouldn't it? If it took five bags to give him one injection's worth of what he needed, and he needed to do it every six hours, there's thirty bags right there in one day.

    From what I know about heroin, which isn't a lot, doing practically a whole bag is a death sentence. Yeah, there's no denying that Hoffman was a big guy, but many people OD with heroin because they can fuck up their dosages. I'd imagine it's rather easy to do, and if you're in a state looking to get high and you aren't in a rational state of mind, you can easily over do it.

    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.

    you gain resistance to heroin's effects quite easily, so higher doses are needed in order to give the same "high".
    here's a good overview of it
    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontl.../heroin/brain/

    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.
