"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice



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.

Damn, drug OD, apparently.
You never know.

So glad I never did heroin. It gets your claws in you and never lets go.

We have friends who live in the same building as him. They just saw him yesterday while their kids were playing together in the park. Said he seemed happy. Fucking fuck fuck fuck.

Huge loss. Amazing talent. Check out the Slate story on his Boogie Nights role. Easily one of my top 5 favorite actors of...dare I say... all time.

WTF, dude!
