Philip Seymour Hoffman, who won the Oscar for best actor in 2006 for his portrayal of writer Truman Capote and created a gallery of other vivid characters, many of them slovenly and somewhat dissipated, was found dead Sunday in his apartment with what officials said was a needle in his arm. He was 46. Two law enforcement officials, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said the actor apparently died of a drug overdose and that glassine envelopes containing what were believed to be heroin were found with him Hoffman made his career mostly as a character actor, and was one of the most prolific in the business, plying his craft with a rumpled naturalism that also made him one of the most admired performers of his generation.
