Philip Seymour Hoffman, February 2

After battling addiction since his early 20s, sadly Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose.

PSH was a fantastic leading man who never had the glamorous role but boy could he act his socks off.

He was much admired throughout the acting industry – not just for his stellar screen performance but also for his theater directing.

He deservedly won one Oscar from his four nominations and fans can still look forward to some posthumous work, including The Hunger Games – Mockingjay Part 2.
