Off-Topic: RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman

As many news outlets are now confirming, Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his Manhattan apartment this morning, having apparently overdosed on heroin. He was 46 years old.

Hoffman was far and above my favorite actor and, for me, lit up the screen even in otherwise abysmal movies (I'm looking at you, Along Came Polly). The vast breadth of different roles he played - compare, for instance, Brant in The Big Lebowski, the Duke in Pirate Radio, Gust Stavrakalos in Charlie Wilson's War, Truman Capote in Capote, and Father Flynn in Doubt - was a testament to his great adaptability and talent as an actor. By all accounts, he was also a kind and decent human being. Seeing pictures of his smile have been breaking my heart all afternoon.

Feel free to post pictures, memories, favorite movies and roles and quotes, and just whatever you like below. We've lost a once-in-a-generation talent.

Rest in Peace, Philip Seymour Hoffman. You are gone too soon.
