    Add me to the list of the unsurprised but saddened. Poor bloke. He tried to stay clean, which is more than many do.

    This is sad. Addiction is a bitch.

    I wonder if that is what happened here. Though is sounds like there are blinds out there suggesting he's been dabbling again for a bit.

    Regardless, it's a sad, sad thing. He struck me as someone chock full of inner demons he battled daily.

    On a personal note, my husband often reminds me so much of this man (minus the addictions but in the smarts, voice, and slightly the looks department) that I feel a bit more sad than I normally would. I know given my husband has his own demons resulting from high intelligence, bi-polar disorder, a brilliant sense of humor and looks that cause him to be frowned upon by many, I have a minor sense of what PSH was running from.
    I am sorry that you feel this more than some people w/out a PSH-type personality in their lives would.

    I have family members who suffer from addiction, bipolar and the ultra, ultra high intelligence that makes some people so brilliant, yet makes them feel like aliens on the inside. I'm married to one of those guys, too. When I get close enough, I can almost feel his inner demons, and I want to smother each and every one of them to bring him peace. Sadly, there is nothing I can do but be there and provide love and support.

    Addiction is one of the scariest things out there. Even if in remission, one never knows when it can rear its ugly head. It keeps me super-vigilant about going too far with even a glass of wine with dinner. RIP, Mr. Hoffmann. You will be sorely missed.

    R.I.P Phil. One of my ultimate favourite actors ever. I love his voice too - so distinctive.

    I wonder whether some of the super-smart people who fall into the trap of drugs etc do so because they inevitably have a very low boredom threshold and drugs can quieten that down or make the mind fizz in a way that seems refreshing during periods of mental inactivity. I have also noticed that these people also seem to have a tendency towards depression and mental illness too. That's not me making excuses, just trying to understand why someone who is particularly gifted in some way can be so dense about other things.

    Anyway, this is a sad loss and my thoughts are with his family and those who loved him.

    I would also add overthinking in there. They probably use drugs to get a release from despairing and analysing every little thing.

    Yes, this is a death that brings many emotions and feelings. Anger, sadness, grief, disgust, empathy. It's such a fucking waste. And yes, he obviously was one of those people who was only going to be freed from that demon by death alone. He's free now. May he have found peace at last.

    It is always sad when people waste the talents they have been given. Like I said, I didn't care for the guy as an actor, but I know a lot of people did enjoy his work. I feel for his children though...such a terrible way for them to lose their Dad.

    We are losing too many people from this damn disease. We have too many people fighting this damn disease. When I see someone like this die from it...someone who has all the money for all the resources to seek and get the best treatment, it just breaks my heart for my loved one who is fighting it with less to fight with. I know it comes down to the addict who has to say no and fight. It just breaks my heart and rips me apart. RIP Phillip. I hope you have become a guardian angel for the ones still fighting the fight.

    Just a terrific actor. I will miss watching him in future films. Heroin sucks kids. So sorry for his family and friends. RIP.

    Dunno about that. Whatever demons he carried made him who he was and he gave the world a big gift. Don't see a waste. I've seen people live twice as long and not mean a fraction of what he meant to people. That's A Waste.

I had hoped he'd caught himself in time and his recovery had begun again, but obviously things spiraled from there and he slid into shooting up. It's a very sad situation and a big loss.
    I didn't remember this. All the sadder to me. To have had it under control, built this amazing career, beautiful family and then one slip ... It takes over and you are dead.

    I loved this guy. LOVED him. So versatile. The first time I saw him he was the gay hanger-on guy with a secret crush on Mark Wahlberg in "Boogie Nights". Was great at the bad guy in MI III. Even in the Hunger Games sequel, I liked him.

    From what I heard this morning, they found out he was dead because his kids had not been picked up by him at school, and they went back to his place to see what the problem was. How horrible for his kids.

    I know I told this addiction story before -- my cousin told me about her friends' whose son (about 18, I think) was addicted to heroin. He was in a treatment center and when his treatment was completed, there was a mixup, and there was nobody there to pick him up. When they got home, they found him dead from an OD in his childhood bed.

    ^ Loved him as Scotty J. in Boogie Nights. I think that's the first role where I really noticed him too. That and The Talented Mr. Ripley. No matter how small the role, he always stood out.

    So sad.

    My favorite role he played was Lester Bangs in Almost Famous. Best scene:
