NEW YORK – Oscar award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York City apartment Sunday afternoon, according to multiple media reports. He was 46.
The Wall Street Journal stated the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner was still working to determine Hoffman’s exact cause of death.
An official did tell The New York Times it appeared Hoffman died of a drug overdose. The actor was treated for addiction in the past and admitted in an interview last year he fell off the wagon after 23 years of sobriety.
Hoffman won the 2005 Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of “In Cold Blood” author Truman Capote in the biopic “Capote.”

He was also nominated by the Academy for three Best Supporting Actor Oscars, for "The Master," "Doubt," and "Charlie Wilson's War," according to ABC News.
Most recently Hoffman starred in the second of three movies based on the popular teen literature books "The Hunger Games."
Hoffman also visited the Queen City as part of the cast in the 2011 George Clooney film "The Ides of March." That movie was shot at multiple area locations. Hoffman played Paul Zara in that film, a campaign manager in the political thriller.
