    Philip Seymour Hoffman


    He cracked me up in Along Came Polly, with all of his "bricks" on the BBall court....... (first time I ever heard about 'shart') during his tour of the art gallery.

    The Talented Mr. Ripley was a favorite too.

    I thought he made a great villain in Mission Impossible 3.

    My wife went to college with him and they lived in the same dorm for a year, her best friend used to make a little extra money doing laundry for Hoffman and his room mate, basically because they were too lazy to do it themselves :laughing2:. He was a phenomenal actor, it's really a shame.

    Great talent. Liked his role in Capote. Article I read said he was clean for 23 years. Sad that it took him.

    The drugs explains why he looked so much older than myself. Why do successful people like that go that way??

    Try to imagine a life where you can't go to the store without being pestered.

    Agree with that. I've also heard it said that many talented actors & comedians, have had painful lives.(in childhood)

    Giant and Safeway deliver, and I'm pretty sure he'd be able to afford their delivery.

    You do drugs, you increase your odds of death, pretty dumb choice, Philip.

    If he had the demon it might not have been his choice.

    The demon isn't the one who stuck a needle in Hoffman's arm.

    No Doctor here, but I have ZERO sympathy for these "poor celebrities/sports stars" who get these addictions and then lose everything because they think they can do whatever the hell they want. Stay away from Illegal drugs, and odds of you living a long healthy life increase significantly.

    What about sympathy for folks fighting the demon before they became a "poor celebrity/sports star"? He first sought help for addiction at the age of 22 BEFORE his acting career took off.
