“We don’t have the timetable for this precisely down — I think it will be at least a year or so, but sometime in the not too distant future, 2015 for the love of God, in fact, Paul and I will be wrapping things up.”

He added: “I just want to reiterate my thanks for the support from the network, all of the people who have worked here, all of the people in the theater, all the people on the staff, everybody at home, thank you very much. What this means now, is that Paul and I can be married,” he joked, in a reference to bandleader Paul Shaffer.

The Film Industry & Fans Mourn The Death Of Philip Seymour Hoffman!

Tributes are pouring in following the death of actor of 46 year old Philip Seymour Hoffman at his home in New York on Sunday. The Oscar-winner was found unconscious at around 11:15 a.m. Sunday on the bathroom floor of his apartment by friend and screenwriter David Bar Katz, who called 911. Hoffman was pronounced dead at the scene. A police spokesman said investigators found two small plastic bags and a substance suspected of being heroin. Hoffman has often spoken in the past of his struggle with drug addiction, and how after twenty three years of being clean and sober, he fell off the wagon.

In a statement, his family said: “We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Phil and appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received from everyone.”  “This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you respect our privacy during this time of grieving. Please keep Phil in your thoughts and prayers.” Hoffman is survived by his partner Mimi O’Donnell, and their three children.

Hoffman won a best actor Oscar in 2005 for Capote and was nominated a further three times – for The Master, Doubt and Charlie Wilson’s War.  He also picked up three Tony nominations for his work on Broadway, including Death of a Salesman.

George Clooney, who appeared alongside Hoffman in The Ides of March, said: “There are no words… It’s just terrible.”

Robert De Niro said ”he was a wonderful actor I’m very, very saddened by the passing of Phil. He was a wonderful actor. This is one of those times where you say: ‘This just shouldn’t be…
