We’re all still a little in shock at the news of the tragic death of the hugely talented actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. The outpouring of grief and tributes from his fellow actors is testament to his character, talent and commendable lack of Hollywood bullshit.
Perhaps only Samuel L. Jackson could deliver an angry rant as well as Hoffman
He could be loyal and pragmatic
He could be a pompous, officious nerd
He could be cool and pervy and make you feel very uncomfortable
He could be vulnerable
He will be sorely missed by film-fans who respect great character acting
