1. I love him.
He was amazing as Lester Bangs in "Almost Famous" too - a small part but a great one. :thumbsup:

5. Bleah. Sigh...at least there'll always be High Fidelity.
Of course, that's just Jack playing Jack, but still....

(actually, now that I think about it, ALL of his roles are just Jack playing Jack.)

8. I first saw him in "Scent of a Woman."
Besides the fact that he brought back memories of Detroit Country Day, I really thought this guy's gonna be around for a while, he's too good.

Of course, this panned out; he's winning awards and I have no idea whatever happened to Chris O'Donnell. One could speculate that it was the Robin role that did him in but, hell, Clooney was Batman!

12. oooh, I'd forgotten about that despicable little punk he played in
...the Pacino movie. My favorite roles of his are in State & Main, and Almost Famous.

9. "Boogie Nights", "The Talented Mr. Ripley", among others...
Phillip Seymour Hoffman has always given an excellent performance. Always.

16. I always liked him in "The Big Lebowski" too
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 02:41 PM by deutsey
What a great actor he is. His character in "Lebowski" is such a toady but is so endearing too.

Seems to have his head and heart in the right place too.

17. Actually, I think his performance as Willis in Scent of a Woman was 1st
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 02:49 PM by WeRQ4U
Either way, I think he's ALWAYS good at what he does.
