10 memorable movie roles for Philip Seymour Hoffman

PHOENIX -- The entertainment news media was stunned Sunday after it was announced that renowned actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York City apartment.

The actor was found near packets that likely contained heroin, though tests are still being run. Hoffman had a history of drug issues.

After the world learned of his death, many took to social media to remember Hoffman, considered to be more focused on acting than in being a Hollywood movie star, given his preference for powerful, difficult and complex roles that earned him several Oscar nods, one of which he took home. He won Best Actor for his role as Truman Capote in "Capote."

Out of Hoffman's work, we've assembled his 10 most memorable roles. You can see them in the slideshow below.
