Philip Seymour Hoffman Dies

Philip Seymour Hoffman Dies
“I didn't have any idea that I would be able to have a career in film,” Philip Seymour Hoffman once said. And yet that's exactly what this most brilliant and versatile of actors enjoyed, which makes it even harder to report that he has died at the age of 46.Born in Rochester, New York, Hoffman was exposed to acting early in his life by his mother, a lawyer who enjoyed taking her son to local theatrical productions. Though he was more into athletics originally than acting, the bug bit after he was sidelined by a wrestling injury in his teens and he attended the New York State Summer School Of The Arts before continuing his education at New York University.During his university studies, he founded the Bullstoi Ensemble alongside actor Steven Schub and director Bennett Miller, the latter of whom would go on to have a profound effect on his career.

Filming will begin in Savannah, Georgia and New York City later this month.

Movie spokeswoman Nadine Jolson tells WENN, "The story will follow Kristal who dreamed of having a Country, Bluegrass and Blues club in New York City.

"Living on a couch in the back of the club for the first two years, Hilly could barely make ends meet. Nevertheless, Cbgb became such a well-respected haunt for artists that many bands begged Hilly for a chance to play."
