Heroin overdose. What a damn shame. PSH was a brilliant actor.

Such a WASTE.

Always looked forward to seeing him in more things. But we never will now. He would have character-aged very well and probably never been out of work. Damn shame is right.

R.I.P.

I've got to admit he was one of those actors - his performance almost seemed too visceral. I always felt I would have crossed the road to avoid the character he was portraying. I think the late Donald Pleasance was the same. He seemed to impart an air of unpleasantness that was dramatic, arresting - but discomforting.

as for the drugs who knows - don't lets rush to judgement.

One of my favourite recent movies---music related---was called "A Late Quartet" where Hoffman and Christopher Walken both put on absolutely amazing performances.

Here's a link to a review.

Second URL doesn't work for me, Garga


Garoyle's insensitive remarks usually get removed before they are remarked on. Looks like this one will stay. Here is the corrected second link:

Boy he was a good 'un. Sad that he had to go this way. He was good in everything I ever saw him in and I especially liked the small role he played in The Big Lebowski as Lebowski's gofer.

Garg, I expect you've never had a drug addiction because if you had you wouldn't be nearly so judgmental.

Bad Heroin Killing People

Fentanyl and heroin.

Understandably, Guests cannot post hypertext transfer protocols....so I leave off the initials the slash and the colon.

Very selfish man. He left behind three small children.

It is dangerous to play with the sort of animism Hoffman employed. Truman Capote's cause of death was "liver disease complicated by phlebitis and multiple drug intoxication."

Excerpted from The Guardian (highlighting is mine):


Forensic toxicology reports will be conducted as part of the autopsy in the hope that they will provide a scientific explanation for the actor's death at the age of 46? Hoffman was found with a needle in his arm?

According to reports, the extent of Hoffman's addiction was worse than had previously been publicly known. CNN said that up to 50 small glassine paper bags with a heroin-like substance have been found by investigators, as well as 20 or so used syringes in a plastic cup.

In 2006, Hoffman told 60 Minutes on CBS that he had had to confront alcohol and drug addiction when he was 22 years old. He had consumed "anything I could get my hands on, yeah, I liked it all". Asked by Steve Kroft why he had gone sober then, the actor replied: "You get panicked. I was 22 and I got panicked for my life, it really was just that."...

[By] last May...Hoffman had fallen into addiction again and had been in an east coast rehab center for 10 days. Hoffman had recently been living apart from his longtime partner Mimi O'Donnell, and their three elementary-school aged children . . . who remained in the family's apartment in nearby Jane Street?

Alongside what appeared to be heroin, prescription medicines including anti-anxiety pills were also found in Hoffman's apartment. Authorities across the US have expressed concern in recent months about an epidemic of painkiller addiction linked to a resurgence in sales and consumption of heroin.

While prescription medicines are luring thousands of Americans into addiction, many are then moving on to heroin as a result of increasingly tight restrictions around painkillers such as oxycontin. Heroin is dangerous by dint of the impurities with which it is cut on the black market, and because its potency can be wildly fluctuating, making it easy to overdose.

Just two days before Hoffman died, the medical examiner's office in Nassau County in Long Island warned of a recent spate of deaths involving what appeared to be heroin but in fact turned out to be the powerful narcotic painkiller fentanyl mixed with the fever reducer metamizole which is banned in the US.

he left a remarkable body of work. An achievement few could equal. Really who knows what it took to produce it!

It ill behoves nonentities to make judgements about what a great artist achieves.
