The acting, film, and theater communities, as well as the community in general, incurred a tremendous loss Sunday. Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman (“Capote,” “The Big Lebowski”) died in his Greenwich Village apartment in New York. He was 46.

ExploreTalent observes, Hoffman had an amazing career in his 25 years of acting. He began his acting auditions for plays in high school, and he continued on to acting jobs in films in the 1990's. His performances and range garnered positive critical and audience reactions early on and his fame rose quickly. In 2005, he portrayed Truman Capote in his Academy Award-winning performance for Best Actor. He continued to play a variety of roles in cinema and on stage. He also directed and produced a number of works.

Hoffman had a troubled history of addiction to several substances that he successfully overcame at the age of 22. However, he recently became addicted to prescription drugs, which caused him to relapse and turn to heroine. On Sunday, his body was found in his apartment with a syringe piercing his arm and heroine nearby. He is survived by his parents, several siblings, his long-time partner, and their three children.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was a versatile and exceptional performer and artist. His impact on the entertainment business is immeasurable. He has and will continue to encourage actors and filmmakers for generations to come, and he will be greatly missed.
