Academy Award winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, 46, has been found dead in his Manhattan apartment.
Very sad news. Hoffman was an amazing actor and only 46 (!) years old. It's sad to see that he's another victim of a drug overdose.
Philip Seymour Hoffman played in many different movies, such as The Big Lebowski, Magnolia, Almost Famous, Doubt and Red Dragon.
Most recently he was involved in The Hunger Games franchise, playing Plutarch Heavensbee.
The studio behind The Hunger Games has released a statement on the actor's passing: "Philip Seymour Hoffman was a singular talent and one of the most gifted actors of our generation. We're very fortunate that he graced our Hunger Games family. Losing him in his prime is a tragedy, and we send our deepest condolences to Philip's family."
Apparently, Hoffman had completed the majority of his work on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay parts 1 & 2 prior to his sudden death Sunday morning. He had seven days of filming to go before wrapping Mockingjay Part 2, but there's no word yet on what Lionsgate plans to do to make up for that remaining week Hoffman was supposed to film.
Rest in peace, Philip Seymour Hoffman
