Wow, this one is just as shocking as when Paul Walker died (well, maybe slightly less so)!
Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has passed away at the age of 46 due to an apparent drug overdose! Philip Seymour Hoffman (1967-2014) was known for his roles in films such as “Twister”, “The Big Lebowski”, “Patch Adams”, “Capote”, “Mission: Impossible III”, “Charlie Wilson’s War”, “Doubt”, “Moneyball”, “The Master”, and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.
In terms of animation-related work, Philip Seymour Hoffman provided the voice of Max in the film, “Mary and Max”,
as well as the voice of William Toffman in an episode of the long-running series, “Arthur”.
He shall be missed!

Just crazy, I loved his character in Mary and Max and this came as a shock. Very sad.
Yes, twas truly a shock 😦 !
This was the first place I read of his death. I wasn’t sure wether ‘like’ your post or not. Thank you, though for concentrating on his work rather than the way he died.
Yeah, I know that the “liking” of a blog page talking about someone’s death is a tricky situation. The way I feel is that if you “like” the page, it means you like that the blogger has wrote a page devoted to the deceased.
Yes, I only care about his film roles (and his animation ones, in particular, as that’s what this blog is focused on). I honestly don’t care how he died.
I didn’t realize he was Max in “Mary and Max”. So sad, I just learned his passing a few minutes ago. 😦
Yes, it’s quite sad 😦 .
Wow … So sad … such a waste of an incredible talent!
Quite sad, but I wouldn’t call it a waste. All the films/roles I’ve mentioned before are quite famous and well-acted roles. And he did win an Academy Award.
Holy crap, he voiced an “Arthur” character?!? OMG!
IKR! It was a character from an episode of the 13th season.
well I’ve only seen most of the earlier episodes, so I haven’t seen that one.
I am not usually phased by actors passing away, but wow, this was a bit of a shocker. Hoffman truly was one of our most talented actors and it’s going to be a shame not to see him in any other films.
Yes, this was indeed a shocker 😦 !
He was scheduled to be in the next two “Hunger Games” films, so I wonder what they’re going to do regarding those.
He had completed his scenes in Mockingjay: Pt. 1 and had a few days left in filming for Mockingjay Pt. 2, so it won’t affect them too much. His television series, on the other hand……
