See also

The Wall Street Journal (among numerous other news outlets) has just reported that actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his Manhattan apartment in New York City. The Oscar-winning actor and longtime Hollywood heavyweight was currently in the middle of several new projects for the big screen and had just received overwhelmingly-positive buzz for his two newest films, God's Pocket and A Most Wanted Man, both premiering at the Sundance Film Festival.

Hoffman, whose body of work includes (but is certainly not limited to) such classics as Capote, Twister, Mission: Impossible III, The Master, Red Dragon, Doubt, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Moneyball, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Along Came Polly, Punch-Drunk Love, and countless others. The unofficial cause of death at this point, as reported by TMZ, is a drug overdose. More details will surely come over the next few days, but one fact will still remain: Hollywood has lost a legend.
