R.I.P. Philip Seymour Hoffman

Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his apartment today in New York City.

Anyone with a passion for film will take this one hard. He was such a fantastic character actor that had so much left to give.  He will be remembered for his outstanding roles in Capote, Doubt, The Big Lewbowski and of course, most recently, The Master.

Hoffman has three feature films scheduled to be released this year – Gods Pocket, A Most Wanted Man and The Hunger Games:Mockingjay – Part 1.

Our condolences go to his friends and family.

RIP James Avery AKA “Uncle Philip Banks”

Alfonso Ribeiro has confirmed that James Avery passed away today. Here’s what he had to say on his facebook page:

“The world has lost a truly special man. I am very saddened to say that James Avery has passed. Even though he played my father on TV, he was a wonderful father figure to me in life. He will be deeply missed.”

Avery starred in various TV shows over the years but will always most fondly be remembered as Uncle Phil.

RIP
