Early Life

Philip Seymour Hoffman was born in Rochester, New York, on July 23, 1967. He was the second of four kids. His mother was a lawyer and his father worked for Xerox. His mother liked taking him to see plays at the local theater. When he was 12, Hoffman saw the play All My Sons, which really affected him. “When I saw All My Sons, it changed me in a way that will never go away. I thought it was a miracle, “He told The New York Times about it later.

Hoffman was more interested in sports than acting at first. But when he hurt himself wrestling when he was in his teens, he turned to theater. Hoffman was accepted to the New York State Summer School of the Arts when he was 17 years old. He kept going to New York University to study acting.

Acting Career

In 1992, Hoffman landed one of his first major film roles in Scent of a Woman, starring Al Pacino and Chris O’Donnell. His career took off, and he landed a number of supporting or character roles in films such as Nobody’s Fool (1994) with Paul Newman, Twister (1996) with Bill Paxton and Boogie Nights (1997) with Julianne Moore. Hoffman has worked with a variety of directors, from Ethan and Joel Coen on The Big Lebowski (1998) to Todd Solondz on Happiness (1998).

With his ability to be convincing in almost any role, Hoffman played a snarky upper-class bully in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), starring Jude Law and Matt Damon, and a caregiver for an ailing elderly man (Jason Robards) in Magnolia (1999). The following year, he proved his versatility as an actor on the Broadway stage when he appeared with John C. Reilly in a revival of Sam Shepard’s True West. The two actors exchanged roles every other night and both received a Tony Award nomination for their work.

In 2005, Hoffman achieved the breakthrough of his career with the film Capote, in which he played the famous writer Truman Capote. The film was set in the early 1960s, when Capote was working on his nonfiction bestseller In Cold Blood, about the 1959 murder of a Kansas family. Hoffman jumped into the role, but only after initial hesitation. “I knew it was going to be great, but I still took the part by the skin of my teeth,” Hoffman told The New York Times. “Playing Capote required a lot of concentration. I prepared for four and a half months. I read and listened to his voice and watched videos of him on TV.” All his hard work paid off. Hoffman earned much praise for his performance in the film and took home the coveted Academy Award for Best Actor.

After Capote, Hoffman received Oscar nominations for supporting roles in Charlie Wilson’s War (2007) and Doubt (2008). In Doubt, Hoffman played a priest alongside Meryl Streep who may have had an inappropriate relationship with a young male student at a Catholic school.

In 2012, Hoffman again proved his prowess as a leading man. He starred in a remake of Death of a Salesman as Willy Loman, the patriarch in this dysfunctional family drama. Hoffman earned much praise for his work, including a Tony Award nomination. That same year, he played the leader of a quasi-religious organization in The Master.

Hoffman later landed a role in the second installment of The Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire (2013), as game developer Plutarch Heavensbee, alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.
