Philip Seymour Hoffman found dead in NYC apartment

(Continued)

Last year, he crossed to the other side of the footlights to direct Bob Glaudini’s “A Family for All Occasions” for the Labyrinth Theatre Company, where he formerly served as co-artistic director. Hoffman also directed “Jesus Hopped the A Train” and “Our Lady of 121st Street” for the company and received Drama Desk Award nominations for both productions.

His other notable off-Broadway roles include Iago in Shakespeare’s “Othello” in 2009, Konstantin in “The Seagull,” directed by Nichols in 2001, and a Drama Desk-nominated part in Glaudini’s “Jack Goes Boating” in 2007.

Two films starring Hoffman premiered last month at the Sundance Film Festival: the espionage thriller “A Most Wanted Man” and “God’s Pocket.”
