Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead on Sunday in his Manhattan apartment. He was 46.

Hoffman was steeped in his profession — in film, on stage, in the spotlight and behind the scenes.

In 2005, he won the Oscar for best actor for his portrayal of Truman Capote. The movie focuses on Capote's interviews with two murderers on death row for his novel, In Cold Blood.

He was, to me, the greatest charactor actor of all time.  Astounding performances in Truman and Doubt.  I saw him off Broadway in 2007 in Jack Goes Boating, and even then – a memorable performance.

A big loss to both stage and screen.
