Philip Seymour Hoffman RIP

Philip Seymour Hoffman RIP
I am pretty upset with this news.  This guy was an amazing actor.  He played bad and good guys equally well.  You can tell that Philip really enjoyed playing the various roles.  It seems his demons got the better of him.  And, it is another reminder of the toll addiction takes on people.  
What about his great role in Mission Impossible III?
His monologue in MI3 is wonderfully evil. 
I loved watching this dude act.  He was the one that taught me the term “Sharted”
Probably his most head turning role recently has to be his character in The Master where he played a version of L. Ron Hubbard.  That role is so freaking great that it put a smile on my face because of how close he role was to Hubbard. 
Anyway, he will be missed. 
TwisterYep, he was one of the storm chaser crew members. 
Boogie Nights: He played the behind the scenes guys in the porn shoots.  He was a closeted gay man that beat himself up for letting his homosexuality out.  There are some great scenes with him and he nearly steals the show.
Red Dragon: Isn’t he the guy that gets murdered by the main killer in a wheel chair? 
Along Came Polly: “Let it rain!”  He’s great as the has-been child actor.
