    Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman dead after suspected drug overdose - The Globe and Mail

    I don't know why, but this one is really upsetting me. He was so talented and just seemed so brilliant. He just seemed better than this.

    I was never fond of him, but he was very good at what he did. Not shocked though.

    I was seeing this all over my news feed today. But I can honestly say I didn't know who he was. I had to ask someone and even then I didn't know who he was.

    Really?? OOG, you need to watch more movies! Probably the most recent/relatable one is the Hunger Games. He was in the second one and was supposed to be in the next two also, but I'm not sure how far into filming they've gotten. He's an incredible actor. He's been in so many movies, but not usually the main character. He's often creepy. One of those actors you don't really like and don't know why, but it's usually because of the roles he chooses. But if you sit back, you realize he's just a genius. You truly believe he is every character he plays. Was.

    It's such a shame - he had apparently been clean and sober for many years.

    I don't care too much about celebrities, and usually don't know half of them. But he was my favourite actor, truly. He was one of those actors that you don't notice, until you do, and then you can't get enough of them, if that makes sense? Totally bummed about it.

    Very sad and I feel horrible for his young children. I honestly believe that addiction is a disease though and although there are choices in life some ppl have addictive personalities, genetic predispositions to alcoholism, etc. I grew up around several ppl with addictions issues and it is very sad to see when they aren't ready for help. It's unfortunate that he was sober for so long and then got pulled back into it.

    Word is that they were 7 days away from wrapping the last Hunger Games movie so his death won't effect it. Just means I'll be super sad watching those movies.

    He was sober they said for over 20 years.... checked himself into rehab in may BEFORE he relapsed because he said he could feel it happenin...... feel bad for his family. He was trying to get help again but the addiction proved too much
