RIP Mr. Hoffman
You may recall last June we suggested that Philip Seymour Hoffman be selected to play Mayor Rob Ford in a movie about the crack smoking bureaucrat. We also mentioned at the time that Hoffman had been in rehab for his heroin addiction.
As you may have heard by now, Phil was found dead in his New York apartment on Sunday with a needle in his arm.
This saddened us. Mr. Hoffman showed great talent as an actor and 46 is way too young to die, particularly by your own hand and accidentally at that.
The police are now searching for the dealer who sold him the 70 bags of heroin that were found in his apartment labeled either Ace of Spades or Ace of Hearts.
We suppose there's nothing else the police can do because you can't bring Mr. Hoffman back from the dead as much as we might want to and now someone else will have to star as Rob Ford in his biopic.
