Philip Seymour Hoffman's tragic death occurred while he was nearing the end of his work on the two-part 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' movies, and while he only had seven days of filming left, those days included at least one key scene. We initially thought that these final scenes would be rewritten to exclude the character of Plutarch Heavensbee, but according to the NY Post, the filmmakers are planning to recreate the late actor with special effects to keep his presence intact.

Remembering Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Man Who Could Play Anything

Philip Seymour Hoffman tribute
The Weinstein Co.

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.

‘A Most Wanted Man’ Review

A Most Wanted Man Review
Roadside Attractions

Nobody shoots people through windows quite like Dutch photographer-turned-filmmaker Anton Corbijn. After coming out of the gate with the splendid Ian Curtis biopic 'Control' and the gorgeous but muted 'The American,' his adaptation of John Le Carre's recent novel, 'A Most Wanted Man,' suffers from his intentional coldness and precision. Recollecting on the film reminds me that it is an interesting yarn, but while watching it I was unable to shake that it was so ... freaking ... slow.
