Homage to the Loss of Variety

IndiaGlitz [Tuesday, February 04, 2014]

He could be anything and he chose to be no more. The news of Philip Seymour Hoffman has come as a shock to everyone world-over, and we in the tiny corner of the world that he once walked, also extend our heartfelt condolences to world cinema, for the loss of variety in the various convincing forms of the actor. In the span of two decades of activity, Philip was nominated for the Academy Awards four times and held the golden lady in his hands for playing the five-foot-three Truman Capote, in 2005 flick 'Capote'. Much to everyone's envy, the gregarious man held the pride of a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, an SAG and four Chlotrudis apart from the Oscar award. Hoffman was a familiar face not only on silver screen, but also in theatre, entertaining a wide variety of audience, in the roles that he enacted convincingly true to life. The actor was found lying in the bathroom of his Manhattan apartment on Sunday morning, by David Bar Katz.

Hoffman was declared dead soon afterwards; though investigation is underway, it is believed that Hoffman died due to an over dosage of drugs and alcohol - a syringe was found sticking out of his body, with packets of heroine lying carelessly nearby. Philip Hoffman was in the verge of wrapping up 'Hunger Games' around his untimely death, and a source close to quote Lions Gate Entertainment, only a modest rewrites are required in the script, as the veteran had already completed most part of the film. Hoffman's demise is deeply mourned by his wife, three children, and millions worldwide.
