Academy Award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his Manhattan apartment this morning according to NYPD.  He was 46.

No cause of death has been revealed, though the NY Post is reporting that Hoffman’s body was found with a hypodermic needle still in his arm.  Hoffman has attended rehab in the past for substance abuse, once after graduating from NYU and again after a relapse in 2012.  The actor/director won his only Academy Award for his role in ‘Capote’ in 2005, also being nominated for his work in ‘The Master’, ‘Doubt’, and ‘Charlie Wilson’s War’.

Hoffman recently appeared in ‘Catching Fire’, the second of four Hunger Games films, of which he was slated to appear in the follow ups.

This is a developing story.
