Episode 48: Philip Seymour Hoffman

Blockbuster Film School

Sometimes the famous lead actor surviving the apocalypse is basically the same character who killed aliens in their last film but now they have glasses. Others actors transform themselves with each role inhabiting a new soul at a level which is unrecognizable to even themselves. Philip Seymour Hoffman was that performer. Every film he graced had a unique character that was never seen again. Blockbuster Film School has never been more certain of a statement being true when we say Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the greatest actors of all time. Listen as we gush over his impressive filmography including the Ben Stiller movie where he sharted his pants. He really could do anything.

Death of a Film Star

Philip Seymour Hoffman isn’t your usual Hollywood star. Some actors do charisma and charm. They radiate confidence. They lead. And the audience follows. But Philip just doesn’t want to. He wants something more interesting. Because between the matinée idol and the pantomime villain is the everyman. It’s where we watch from. But recovering addict is the role he’s been playing longer than any other…WARNING: This episode contains references to drug abuse and addiction.

Ep. 33 - Philip Seymour Hoffman (feat. Mike Rodmaker)

Munsons at the Movies

Welcome to the Munsons at the Movies Podcast. Each episode we delve into the filmography and impact of a randomly selected actor. In this episode, we explore the career of Philip Seymour Hoffman. Best known for his roles as Lancaster Dodd in The Master (2012), Truman Capote in Capote (2005), and Sandy Lyle in Along Came Polly (2004), Hoffman is often considered the best character actor of his generation. Joined once again by Mike Rodmaker, we discuss why we often associate him with his character in Twister, struggle to pick his top 10 roles (because he's so damn good in everything), and speculate whether he actively avoided acting with cast members of the Fast & Furious cinematic universe. Where does Hoffman's career rank on the Munson Meter? Listen to find out.

MINI EP 15: Sarah B. Reads “Mimi O’Donnell Reflects on the Loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman and the Devastation of Addiction”

HELL HAS AN EXIT Podcast with Bryan Alzate

Welcome to HELL HAS AN EXIT Podcast with Bryan Alzate. Throughout his 12 years of sobriety, Bryan has read endless stories and listened to thousands of speakers talk about addiction, but none compare to an article by Mimi O'Donnell, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s long-time partner and the mother of his children. In 2014, Hoffman was found dead on his bathroom floor with a syringe in his left arm after overdosing on heroin, benzodiazepines and amphetamines. O’Donnell so accurately illustrates the recovery, disconnect, and the slow stage setting of a relapse. She acutely recalls Hoffman’s struggles and his relapse and describes every family member’s tug of war between providing unconditional love and enabling. It describes an intimate battle lost so publicly, and one that is all too familiar for both addicts and their family members.In this mini episode, Sarah B. reads “Mimi O’Donnell Reflects on the Loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman and the Devastation of Addiction,” which originally appeared in Vogue in December 2017.For more information please visit www.unitedrecoveryproject or call 833-999-1877.Follow on Instagram & Twitter@hellhasanexit@united_recovery@dbpodcastsProduced by www.DBPodcasts.comMusic by Miles M.

142: Philip Seymour Hoffman Plays Twister at the 25th Hour

Double Edged Double Bill

Seven years ago today, we lost Philip Seymour Hoffman. A true master of the acting craft who more than deserves a Double Edged Double Bill dedicated to his too brief career. So, Adam and Thomas have two very different sides of the Hoffman coin to talk about this week. First, Philip Seymour Hoffman chases storms with Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt in Twister! Then, Hoffman tries to give Edward Norton one last night of freedom in the underrated Spike Lee masterwork 25th Hour. Together, Adam and Thomas answer the crucial questions. Do Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton sound exactly the same? Did 25th Hour prepare screenwriter David Benioff for Game of Thrones? Which two films will they choose for next week's episode on cinematic bromance? Well, grab a plate of too good stake and eggs to eat at the club's VIP lounge and tune in to find out!
