Philip Seymour Hoffman's 5 Most Memorable Roles

We lost one of the greats Sunday. Critically acclaimed actor and director Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his Manhattan apartment Sunday of a suspected drug overdose.

The 46-year-old was recognized for his work on stage and screen, winning an Academy Award for best actor in Capote, garnering Academy Award nominations for best supporting actor in Charlie Wilson's War, Doubt, and The Master, and earning three Tony nominations for his work in True West, Death of a Salesman, and Long Day's Journey into Night.

While we can hardly list all of Hoffman's striking performances, we can recall his five most memorable roles.
