Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead this morning at an apartment in Manhattan. He was 46.

The actor, who won an Oscar for his work on the film Capote, reportedly died of a drug overdose. The news was first reported by Wall Street Journal reporter Pervaiz Shallwani.

Shallwani broke the news on Twitter, writing that Hoffman was found by a friend this morning. The friend, an unnamed screenwriter, called 911 at about 11 am. Police rushed to the scene but could not save the actor.

Hoffman was a talented actor who earned four Oscar nominations throughout his career. In addition to Oscar nominated performances in Charlie Wilson’s War, Doubt, and The Master, Hoffman also had memorable performances in movies like The Hunger Games, The Big Lebowski, and Almost Famous.

The NY Post reports that Hoffman has admittedly struggled with drug addiction. He reportedly checked himself into rehab last year for heroin addiction.

Hoffman was working on two more Hunger Games movies at the time of his death. He was also planning on directing a new movie called Ezekiel Moss with Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams.

Hoffman was one of the most respected and talented actors working today. From comedic performances in movies like Along Came Polly to powerful dramatic roles in movies like The Master, Hoffman had unbelievable range and will be sorely missed by many.
