Philip Seymour Hoffman, winner of the Academy Award for Best Actor, passed away today at the age of 46 due to a suspected drug overdose at his residence in New York.

He was found in the bathroom of his apartment in Greenwich Village with a hypodermic needle in his arm, say New York police. Hoffman was the star of such films as Capote, Twister, Cold Mountain, and recently Hunger Games: Catching Fire, with several films set to be released this next year. He was a well-respected actor, and constant Academy contender. He will be sorely missed, and we are deeply saddened to hear of his passing.
