Very sad on this Super Bowl Sunday, to lose Philip Seymour Hoffman. He was a phenomenal actor, but more important, I'm certain he was a nice human being .. It's sad that he was not able to overcome drugs ..
Hoffman was one of the greatest actors of his time and a favorite of mine .. He talent and range were incredible .. I see some great actors turn in lots of great performances but often some great actors play almost the same similar rolls .. Not the case with Hoffman, who as I observed myself over the years that most of his rolls were very different and he was able to portray different varied characters and personalities with great aplomb .. Take for examples hsi rolls as Scotty in Boogie Nights, the smug kid in Scent of a Woman, Brandt in the Big Lebowski opposite Jeff Bridges and John Goodman, and his Oscar Winning performance for Best Actor portraying Truman Capote in Capote .. Hoffman was always marvelous, witness his roll in Charlie Wilson War, Pirate Radio, and Before The Devil Knows You're Dead ...

I saw Philip around the neighborhood on occasion in my local cafe, at Bar Pitti, adn walking the streets of our beloved Greenwich Village ..
 I had a nice little encounter with Phillip once. I was walking into my local cafe and philip was walking out with a coffee .. I just told him that I loved his work, and he  nodded and sincerely thanked me .. And I do believe it was sincere, that it was just a little brief complement that he did appreciate, he was on his way, and I was on mine, and happy that I got the opportunity to just let a great artist know how i enjoyed his work and the artistry in it, and that all. 
Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Rest in Peace" sorry you left us too soon ....
