  1. Now that is a shocker.
    Really liked him as an actor.
    Evidently there’s some deadly heroin going around – spiked with something – that has killed quite a few people. I don’t know what Hoffman may have been using, but …


    1. Sadly, it may not have been so much what he was using as how much he was using, he was found, needle in arm, surrounded by empty heroin packets (envelopes)…such a tragic waste of talent…


      1. It was a couple of years ago at one of the Oscar shows, they had a bunch of the old (emphasis on OLD) actresses — Ginger and Sophia and a couple of others … They all looked like walking corpses or ghouls. It was horrible. Even with soft lighting.


      1. Nope! I had no idea, but, then I’ve never been a huge fan of Hoffman, his eclectic roles were, with the exception of Boogie Nights, a bit too eclectic…Oh and The Big Lebowski! He was just outside my periphery…


      2. Garry wasn’t exactly a fan, but he respected him and liked his work. I liked his work too, though I’m not as much of a fan as Garry (obviously). Neither of us knew and Garry follows Hollywood gossip.


      3. Every woman knows. That’s why so many keep trying to redo themselves via plastic surgery. They want to be cute again. They usually end up looking like zombies. Which I don’t think is what they had in mind.
