While younger fans may have known him as Plutarch Heavensbee from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Philip Seymour Hoffman was an extremely versatile actor with a number of other great roles under his belt.

Some of his more recent films included The Master (2012), The Ides of March (2011), and Moneyball (2011). He won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2005 for his role as Truman Capote in the biopic Capote (2005), beating Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix. Hoffman was widely considered one of the best actors in Hollywood, before his untimely death Sunday at the age of 46. Let’s take a look back at five of his best roles.

Truman Capote in ‘Capote’ (2005)


In what many say is his best performance, Hoffman won several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Actor. He portrayed Truman Capote, a novelist investigating the murder of four members of the Clutter family. Hoffman played the role with just the right amount of charm and wit to drive critics (and the Academy) wild.

Hoffman appealed to a younger audience with his role as Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. At the time of his death, he had wrapped filming on the sequel, Mockingjay, Part 1, but had seven days of shooting left for Mockingjay, Part 2. Lionsgate issued a statement saying that since the vast majority of his scenes had been completed, they would not be recasting the role.

Freddie Miles in ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ (1999)


While his character wasn’t the main focus of the film, Hoffman starred alongside Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow in The Talented Mr. Ripley, an adaptation of the 1955 novel by Patricia Highsmith. He played Freddie Miles, a friend of Jude Law’s character Dickie Greenleaf. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards.

Owen Davian in ‘Mission: Impossible III’ (2005)


Everyone loves a good villain, and Hoffman was given the chance to play a great one in Mission: Impossible III. He portrayed arms dealer and kidnapper Owen Davian, opposite Tom Cruise as IMF agent Ethan Hunt. The film is heavy on action sequences and special effects, making it a popcorn blockbuster for the ages.

Lancaster Dodd in ‘The Master’ (2012)


Despite the film not being a box office success, Hoffman received overwhelming critical acclaim for his role in The Master as Lancaster Dodd, the founder of a religious movement known as “The Cause.” The film received three Academy Award nominations, including Best Supporting Actor for Hoffman. Director Paul Thomas Anderson has said that he envisioned Hoffman as the character from the beginning.

Some of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s other notable roles include Brandt in The Big Lebowski (1998), Lester Bangs in Almost Famous (2000), and Gust Avrakotos in Charlie Wilson’s War (2007). While these are all excellent films, they are just a few small glimpses into the life of a man who has left quite a mark on the cinematic world. He will be missed.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
