On the day the big game came to town, sad news circulated before tipoff. One of New York’s favorite sons–actor and director Philip Seymour Hoffman–passed away in his Greenwich Village apartment. Looking at my Facebook feed, it’s clear that everyone in the Big Apple was touched by his great career. Whether you saw him on stage in True West, Death of a Salesman, The Seagull and so many more, you were mesmerized by his intense passion and sensitivity.
Of course, who didn’t love his award-winning film work as well? He was stunning in Capote as the great writer–so stunning that he took home the Academy Award for the performance. He was unforgettable in Boogie Nights. Heartbreaking too. And he was the best part of Along Came Polly. And who could forget his brilliant work in Synecdoche, NY? Thank goodness we don’t have to. We can watch these performances over and over again. And behold a fantastic talent–a man, an artist we are grateful for.
Rest in Peace Mr. Philip Seymour Hoffman. You will be sorely missed. Sending solace to your family in this tough time.
