We try to stick to music around here, but when one of our all-time favorite actors dies far too soon, we must act. A quick look at the movies Philip Seymour Hoffman starred in is a murderer’s row of modern-day classics: Boogie Nights, Almost Famous, Magnolia, The Big Lebowski, Cold Mountain, Capote. Every movie Hoffman was in he nearly stole, no matter how small the part. In fact many of these roles on this list are smaller supporting roles. The fact of the matter is, he always seemed to be the most memorable character of any movie he was in. It was beautiful career, tragically cut short. Thanks for all great times PSH. Without further delay, our ten favorite Hoffman roles:
Mr. Lebowski’s friendly but sensitive butler Brandt couldn’t have been played any better than by Hoffman, whose uncomfortable smiles and laughs build a great comedic tension.
