Philip Seymour Hoffman – R.I.P.

Philip Seymour Hoffman didn’t write this scene in the movie Almost Famous but this blog may never have been without him saying the words he spoke just to me:

If only Philip Seymour Hoffman, as brilliant of an actor and man as he was, had heeded the advice of Frances McDormand’s character in the same movie:



Good night forever, sad man who played Lester Bangs. Don’t let those swill merchants rewrite you.

  3. I loved so many of his roles, and even the characters he played whom I hated made me respect him as an actor for playing them. Horrible news.
