Currently the best actor of this generation, who only recently came into the limelight. Before "Capote" (which he won an Oscar for), he mostly did supporting roles, but then people woke up and realized how amazing this actor is. Some of his great performances can be seen in:
Before the Devil Knows You're Dead
Synecdoche, New York
Charlie Wilson's War
The fact is, Philip Seymour Hoffman is this generation's Robert De Niro. No, his performances aren't the same, I'm just saying that he's the only actor to come out this generation with the same amount of talent and skill as De Niro.
And "Twister" never happened.
