Rest in Peace, Philip Seymour Hoffman

The world has lost another amazing actor. Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York City apartment. Police reports said he apparently died of a drug overdose. He was 46.

Hoffman was known from his movie Capote, in which he acted as Truman Capote, an American author. He won an Oscar for his magnificent portrayal in the movie, and was nominated for 4 others. He was also known for his works with director Paul Thomas Anderson, one of the most respected directors of modern cinema. Through movies such as Boogie Nights, Magnolia (one of my top favorite movies), Punch Drunk Love, and The Master, he conveyed a masterful grasp of the knowledge of acting and roleplaying. And probably, he was most known by the new generation as Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

This is a tragic and a sudden death, that will leave us mourning. Hoffman is a truly amazing actor who has made a mark in the world of cinema. Also, a great, wonderful, and awesome man. Farewell, good sir, the world will always remember you.
