It's always tragic and sad when someone so young, famous or not, dies in such a way. Hoffman was an amazing actor... probably one of the best of his generation. I will miss him.

Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead Sunday in his New York City apartment, law enforcement officials confirmed to NBC News. He was 46.

A concerned friend, described as a screenwriter with access to the actor's apartment, found Hoffman alone in his apartment and called 911. When police arrived about 11:30 a.m., they found Hoffman sitting on the toilet in the bathroom in his underwear and a shirt with a syringe in his arm. Four empty bags of what is believed to be heroin were found nearby. The "branding" on the heroin bags was "Ace of Spades" and "Ace of Hearts," police told NBC News.

Hoffman had spoken openly about past substance abuse issues, saying he quit using drugs and alcohol and "got sober" at 22 years old. "I was 22 and got panicked for my life," he told Steve Kroft in a 2006 interview that now has a particularly haunting quality. "I have so much empathy for these young actors who are 19 and beautiful and famous and rich," Hoffman said. "My God, I'd be dead."

In early 2013, Hoffman checked himself into rehab for 10 days. He told TMZ that he had begun using prescription medicines, and his use escalated to heroin.

Yeah, one of my favorite actors out there. Hopefully he's in a better place now wherever it is.

Whoa... the cops found up to 50 bags of heroin in Hoffman's apartment and 20 used syringes in a cup. Not a casual weekend user I guess...
