Phillip Seymour Hoffman was found dead a few hours ago. What awful news.
I chose this picture to remember him in one of the many good moments he gave us.
He left behind three kids and a longtime partner.
I saw him last winter at a Knicks game. He was seated at celebrity row with his son. They showed his goofball pick-up hoops scene from Along Came Polly on the Jumbotron and then the cameras showed him with his kid and everyone cheered. A welcome new tradition, that highlight. A familiar face.
For some of us we’ll always remember this Super Bowl as the day that Phillip Seymour Hoffman died.
