Very sad, a great actor. State and Main is one of my favorites.

Very unfortunate, talented man for sure. The stuff killed over 50 in my small-ish town alone last year, including a good friend. People apparently will never learn.

I tended to have a picture in my head that a heroin addict is a homeless-looking person who sleeps in alleyways. The death of Corey Monteith and now Phillip Seymour Hoffman is changing that.

Addiction does not discriminate in its victims. My condolences to their families.

Two friends of mine had kids on heroin. Regular, middle-class kids. One is still alive, struggling with the addiction. Hopefully, he is still clean.

Very saddening.

As to the other, I still remember asking her step-father about her - and him telling me they she had turned a corner. She just turned 18. Then they found her, poisoned by the substance the dealers used to maximize their profits. Her mom still can't visit her daughter's favorite places. The pain is still too great, seven years later. She is very likely in tears right now, being reminded.

Jeez, what a waste of talent.

Worse, it has deprived 3 kids of a father.

I cannot fathom the demons that drive him to this point.

Sad loss, RIP.

I used to feel like drug addicts were just a waste of space, but only because its what I learned growing up in the ghetto. Just recently I changed my mind about the whole thing but still I seriously HATE when a famous person dies from an over dose as the world reacts the way we are doing here, but when they're sitting home and happen to catch the VERY RARE OCCASION when the media decides for what ever reason (ratings) to broadcast a story about a regular ole Joe that no one has ever heard of found dead in the gutter from an over dose it last for only the moment that it was seen, then its fades into oblivion. How ****ed up is that. So yeah, I agree. What a waste of talent, it could have been given to someone that appreciated it!
