Philip Seymour Hoffman has died of a suspected drug overdose. He was 46.

In addition to Hoffman’s expansive film career — which included an Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in CAPOTE — he was set to headline a new Showtime series, HAPPYISH, this year. (It’s bittersweet now that the trailer critics saw at TCA showed that series to have more promise than most other series that were showcased the rest of the tour.)

A very sad day, and condolences to his family, loved ones, coworkers, and fans.

Update (12:54 PM PT): Showtime has released a statement: “Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of our generation’s finest and most brilliant actors. He was also a gifted comedic talent. It was a great privilege and pleasure to work with him and we are all absolutely devastated by this sudden loss. Our thoughts go out to his family at this very difficult time.”
