Philip Seymour Hoffman found dead in New York, reports the Wall Street Journal

HoffmanHubbardPhilip Seymour Hoffman, the supremely talented actor who played a character based on Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard in 2012’s The Master, was found dead in his apartment today, the Wall Street Journal is reporting this afternoon.

Hoffman received an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of the Hubbard analog Lancaster Dodd, his fourth nomination. He won an Academy Award for his portray of Truman Capote in 2005’s Capote.

He was 46 years old.

The New York Post is reporting that Hoffman succumbed to a drug overdose, according to a law enforcement official. Hoffman had struggled with drug abuse problems, and had checked into a rehab facility last year, the Post says.

The Journal is reporting that Hoffman was found in his Manhattan apartment bathroom with a needle in his arm.

The New York Times has put up a slideshow of Hoffman’s film appearances over the years. It also profiled Hoffman for its magazine in 2008.
