Click over to Snakkle to see Philip Seymour Hoffman and other now-and-then photos.

He is a Oscar-winning actor who can play both "The Master" and "Capote." But before Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the industry's formidable talents, he was just a young man, donning a shaggy haircut and posing for this high school yearbook photo.

Did you recognize Hoffman? The 45-year-old -- who is nominated for his fourth Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Role in "The Master" -- graduated from Fairport High School in upstate New York before getting his B.F.A. in Drama from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in 1989.
