Update - Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead of an apparent heroin overdose — with a hypodermic needle still stuck in his arm and 70 baggies of the drug inside his Greenwich Village pad Sunday, authorities said. He was 46.
He won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Truman Capote in the 2005 movie “Capote,” shortly after publicly admitting that he had nearly succumbed to substance abuse years earlier, after graduating from NYU’s drama school.
