We’ll miss Philip Seymour Hoffman
It wasn’t time for Philip Seymour Hoffman to leave us. But he’s gone and will be greatly missed.
He could play a rumpled loser, a gadabout author, a nasty prep student, or a religious cult leader with ease. He also had his way with Broadway in True West, Long Day’s Journey Into Night and Death of a Salesman.
He could be funny, pathetic, pitiful, scheming, caring, and romantic. You never knew what you were going to get. But one thing was sure, you couldn’t take your eyes off him.
Philip Seymour Hoffman once said, “The ambition, the drive, the wanting to be the center of attention, the wanting to succeed… They’re all inside me somewhere.”
And you did succeed. You were no Willy Loman. Attention has been paid. Rest in peace, sweet prince.
