As many films lovers around the world, I am shocked and sad with the news of the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, th greatest actor of his generation.
He gave many excellent performances in such films like “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead”, “Doubt”, “The Master”, “Charlie Wilson’s War”, “Moneyball”, “The Ides of March” and “Capote”, in which he won many film awards including the Academy Award of best Actor in a leading role in 2006.
He also earned three Tony Award nominations for his work in the theater.
His performances in three Broadway plays led to three Tony Award nominations: two for Best Leading Actor in True West (2000) and Death of a Salesman (2012); one for Best Featured Actor in Long Day’s Journey into Night (2003).
In its front-page obituary, The New York Times referred to Hoffman as “perhaps the most ambitious and widely admired American actor of his generation.”
Rest in peace, Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Thank you for your amazing performances.
We will never forget you.
