I know it’s desperately uncool to lament the death of a celebrity on social media, but Phillip Seymour Hoffman was the God-damn-shit. It really is a tragedy, and we really want to acknowledge his passing. The guy was brilliant. Regardless of the role, the moment he walked on screen you were captivated. The dude had ‘it’. He could make you laugh, cry, squirm, gasp, fart, but best of all he could really, really make you laugh. This scene from ‘Along Came Polly’ is, for me, his crowning achievement…maybe not, but did anyone expect him to be this funny? Anyway, don’t do heroin, dudes. It’ll fuck your life up, and it just might kill you.
Rest In Peace, Mr. Hoffman. Thanks for your work.
