Remembering Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Man Who Could Play Anything

Philip Seymour Hoffman's greatest attribute was that he didn't fit a type.

So many actors - too many actors - play one part and even when they play it well, it showcases a natural limit on their talents. But, Philip Seymour Hoffman? He was a chameleon. Ask him to be chubby and cherubic, and you'd get it. Ask him to be large and menacing, and you'd get it. Ask him to be a slob. Ask him to be slick. Ask him to be a supervillain. Ask him to be an average Joe. You could never pin down what kind of actor he was because he refused to take the easy road. He never did one thing. He never stopped challenging himself.

His legacy is not only one of excellence, but one of constant, exciting and fearless experimentation.

And now he's gone.
