The 46-year-old actor was reportedly found dead in his apartment with a syringe in his arm and some heroin bags nearby.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was not just working on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay before his untimely death… he also was set to star in a new Showtime series called Happyish.
The 46-year-old actor was set to star in the 10 episode series, his first regular TV role. The series follows a man’s pursuit of happiness while working for bosses who are half his age.
Showtime released a statement after his death saying, “Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of our generation’s finest and most brilliant actors. He was also a gifted comedic talent. It was a great privilege and pleasure to work with him and we are all absolutely devastated by this sudden loss. Our thoughts go out to his family at this very difficult time.”
A trailer for the series was screened at the 2014 Winter TCA Press Tour last month and got great reviews from the nearly 200 critics in the room, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It is currently unclear if the network will recast the lead role or just pull the plug on the series altogether.
The 46-year-old actor had completed the majority of his work for Mockingjay Part 1 and only had seventh days of filming left to go on Mockingjay Part 2 before his death, according to Deadline.
“Philip Seymour Hoffman was a singular talent and one of the most gifted actors of our generation. We’re very fortunate that he graced our Hunger Games family. Losing him in his prime is a tragedy, and we send our deepest condolences to Philip’s family,” Lionsgate said in a statement.
Philip‘s unfortunate death will not delay the release date for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and 2, which are scheduled to hit theaters November 21, 2014 and November 20, 2015.
The stars of The Hunger Games franchise have been reacting to his sudden death.
The 46-year-old actor played the role of Plutarch Heavensbee, the new Head Gamemaker in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire who [SPOILER ALERT] is really working as the leader of the rebellion against the Capitol. His character’s role grows in the next two films while leading the rebellion. We will have to wait and see how the studio proceeds with the movie.
