Remembering Philip Seymour Hoffman in Some of His Best Roles
Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire
Even in a high-profile action role, Hoffman's duality is perfect for a character who has more layers than it may seem.
I haven't seen a few of Hoffman' s movies (including Synechdoche, New York and A Late Quartet, both of which have been on my list for a while). He also had two new films -- God's Pocket (costarring John Tuturro and Christina Hendricks) and A Most Wanted Man (costarring Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright and Willem Dafoe) premiere at Sundance this past month. So if you have a favorite I didn't mention, please share it in the comments. May he rest in peace
