RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman
We lost a great one yesterday with the passing of Philip Seymour Hoffman. I simply cannot recall a role of his that he did not excel in. That said, the first thing that comes to my mind is him as Scotty J in Boogie Nights. It was a small (but impactful) role of a colorful character that added to the brilliance of that film. It's one of my favorite films and was certainly my introduction to his work. I wanted to sketch him as kind of a "thank you for your contribution" sort of homage. So thank you sir...and rest in peace.
