Philip Seymour Hoffman, one of the most versatile and talented actors of his generation, has died of an apparent drug overdose. He was 46.

He won the Academy Award and numerous other honors for his portrayal of gay writer Truman Capote in the 2005 film Capote. He received Oscar nominations for best supporting actor for three films: Charlie Wilson's War, Doubt and The Master.

He received acclaim for his portrayal of Rusty Zimmerman in 1999's Flawless, opposite Robert De Niro. As Rusty, Hoffman gave dignity to his portrayal of a transgender woman who helps De Niro recover from a stroke.

Hoffman's range of roles is impressive, from pop culture hits like Hunger Games to the documentary The Party's Over about the 2000 presidential elections.

The actor discussed his drug addiction, but had been clean for 23 years, until 2013. He was found with a drug needle in his arm, and heroin nearby. He is survived by three children and his longtime girlfriend.
