Philip Seymour Hoffman made over 60 films in his career, playing varied roles. He was always different and often extreme. From a small part in Leap of Faith with Steve Martin to the yet to be released Mocking Jay, which is your favourite?
I think he was excellent in Magnolia, and I liked him in Boogie Nights too. We recently watched Talented Mr Ripley again and he's kind of wickedly creepy in that (though actually it's Ripley who is the wicked one!) He's great in A Most Wanted Man too...I guess Magnolia for me tho.
Saw him in film where he was a priest. Meryl Streep
in it, too.
I thought he was so-so.
Meryl Streep outperformed him by miles!
Haven't seen him in any other movie. Just not that interested in contemporary movie 'stars'.
Give me the REAL stars of the 'golden age'; they COULD act!
