Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the great actors of our time. Versatile, poised, and a Orson Wellesian figure of gravitas. On February 2, 2014, “The Master” co-star was found dead in his Manhattan apartment. He was 46. His passing is surely sudden and deeply tragic, but he’s left an impressive legacy for his contemporaries to aspire to. Stay groovy, Scotty J., stay groovy.
This video honours the numerous performers, both big and small (but nonetheless terrific), by Hoffman and aims to cut to the modulated levels of personality and weight that he brought to each and every movie role (Hoffman was also a known thespian).
