Born on July 23, 1967, in Fairport, New York, Philip Seymour Hoffman established himself as one of the strongest stage and film actors of his generation. Having started his acting career in 1991, Hoffman initially played supporting roles in films like "Boogie Nights" (1997), "Magnolia" (1999), "The Talented Mr. Ripley" (1999), "Almost Famous" (2000), "25th Hour" (2002), and "Cold Mountain" (2003), before taking Hollywood by storm. Hoffman made his major breakout with an Oscar-winning lead as the famed author in "Capote" (2005). He went on to receive three more Academy Award nominations for his supporting work in "Charlie Wilson's War" (2007), "Doubt" (2008), and "The Master" (2012). In addition to earning a reputation as a hard-working actor, he also pursued a successful career as a director. He joined the LAByrinth Theater Company in 1995, where he managed to bring back theater-trained sensibilities, and a fearless approach to some of cinema's most uncomfortably realistic portrayals that coped with dark human urges, addictions, and moral conflicts. Hoffman flexed his comedic skills with a finely nuanced portrayal of a loyal assistant in "The Big Lebowski" (1997), a blocked screenwriter in "State and Main" (2000), a hopeless former child actor in "Along Came Polly" (2004), as well as a maturity challenged college professor in "The Savages" (2007). While he sometimes accepted roles in blockbusters like "Mission: Impossible III" (2006), Hoffman was most comfortable working on dramatically challenging films and delivering quality turns in such features as "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead" (2007), "Synecdoche, New York" (2008) and "Doubt" (2008). His standout supporting turns in "Moneyball" (2011) and "The Ides of March" (2011) only further solidified Hoffman's standing as one of the best and most versatile actors working in Hollywood. Tragically, Philip Seymour Hoffman died of an apparent heroin overdose in his New York City apartment on February 2, 2014.
