Despite the intense “Battle of the Bad Guys” this week I have made sure that you will be able to enjoy the weekly “Friday Faces”. This week’s star is Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, who started acting in 1991. Initially in TV shows, but looking at his movie history he has been part of some well known movies like Twister, The Big Lebowski, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love, 25th Hour, The Ides of March and Moneyball. A great actor which deserves an overview of his many roles after the break.
I didn’t succeed in finding pictures of some of his earliest work, but looking at the overview you can see he has been in a lot movies. I like the fact that he’s done very small movies, but doesn’t shy away from blockbusters like Mission Impossible either. My favorite role is the one in Charlie Wilson’s War, where he plays Gust Avrakotos. He’s so good in this and funny as well:
