Death of an Acting Icon: Philip Seymour Hoffman

Sunday, before the glittering lights of the Super Bowl and all the commercials, the world lost one of it's greatest actors and a family lost a father and son. Philip Seymour Hoffman, know for both acting and directing, was found dead in his apartment. Hoffman was known for inhabiting the roles he took -- and everything he was in (not just film, but also television and on stage) was made better by his presence. From Boogie Nights to Doubt to his most recent still-in-theaters role, Catching Fire, Hoffman was a genius on screen. He also directed the 2010 film, Jack Goes Boating and was nominated and won, in 2006, an Oscar for his performance in the title role of Capote.

Philip Seymour Hoffman is an actor who will be missed. He has several films coming out in 2014, including Mockingjay Part 1. The library also has many of Hoffman's films, you can see a full listing here. You can also visit the library and check out our display in Hoffman's memory.
