    He's had drug issues for years I shouldn't be surprised because he only lasted in rehab for 10 days and I knew he was on borrowed time and yet I was still shocked when I saw it.

    Probably because I haven't thought of him since a few months ago and it just happened. Between this and the SB NYC will be chaos

    I hope he finds peace in death he never had in life.

    Damn, that's a big loss. I watched Scent of a Woman recently, which was one of his first roles.

    One of the best actors ever really, in his prime. The movie business hasn't lost someone this big in a while. He has three children, and they are the ones with the right to feel this, but damn, this is ********.

    I remember when Paul Newman passed, my friend said something along the lines of "You could poll 100 people and they could name 100 different moments as his best - and they'd all be right." The same applies to Mr. Hoffman.

    My favorite clip of his is another from Along Came Polly. Watch him in this clip. It's just absurd material, but the emotion he puts into it makes it funnier than it already is. Some mild language here but nothing serious.

    Hard to believe he was just 46 he looked a lot older that's what heavy drug use does to someone(usually)

    Sad. One of my favorite actors. I'm so glad I never got involved in drugs.

    I loved him as Capote. That had to be a hard role to play, Capote was such a unique person. I haven't seem many of his other roles.

    I second UncleBuck. I'm glad I've always been too tough -- intellectually and emotionally -- to fall into the drugs and booze trap that far to many people fall into.

    I don't know what it was in my upbringing or maybe just my personality, but I was really scared of drugs growing up and just knew it was not what I wanted to get into. Through high school and college I just very purposely avoided all situations where drugs were going to be around or available. Alcohol pretty much the same way, although I will drink a handful of times a year.

    I thank my parents, family, schools and everyone. I thinki if I would have gotten involved at a young age I think I could have become addicted and who knows where I would be now

    Being "tough" has nothing to do with how you handle drugs.

    So sad, he was so enjoyable to watch. I really liked him in Almost Famous, but again, he's so good in every movie he's in. So unique, which is saying a lot.

    Never done drugs, I figured my bad luck and terrible memory don't need to be any worse. Plus, I wouldn't last 10min in prison.

    He is talking about the mental toughness to just say no in the situations that present themselves. Peer Pressure, hard times, etc...
    It does take alot of self discipline to really hold yourself accountable and not fall off whatever path you hold yourself to.

    But you do have to be tough to always keep getting back onto your high horse.

    I just never had interest in drugs or even alcohol growing up, and my friends didn't get into it, either.

    Mental toughness has nothing to do with herion addiction. It really is a social issue in the nation right now. I have a few friends who are addicted. One who I was super close with and even dated for a while. It is just sad to see her now. One of the smartest brightest girls I have ever meet. Addiction doesn't discriminate and can happen to anyone no matter how "tough" you are. Herion specifically seems like a drug that is impossible to get off just sad.

    I am the opposite almost all my friends growing up drank and did drugs. I always stayed away due to seeing what addition can do to a person and a family growing up. I cut most of those people out recently. The saying that you are what your closest friends are rings true. Sound yourself with good people and good things should happen. I am lucky I am stubborn and have a strong personality. It got me in trouble a lot in school but serves me well in making tough choices.

    Can't be addicted, if you don't try it.

    But depression and self-medicating is the real issue, and depression doesn't care how "tough" you are. There's some correlation between drug usage and having a rocky formative years of your adolescence.
    Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.” ― Ricky Gervais.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Wonder if it was related to the heroin that's been cut with fentanyl on the east coast. It's a really strong opiate that's been killing dozens of people the last few weeks.
