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.
