Philip Seymour Hoffman Just Got Out of Rehab for Snorting Heroin and Popping Pills

Philip Seymour Hoffman drugsOscar-winning paleface Philip Seymour Hoffman just got out of a detox facility for a drug problem that started with prescription drugs and “recently escalated to snorting heroin,” according to TMZ.

In 2006, Hoffman told 60 Minutes that he sniffed, injected and shallowed a whole mess of narcotics in his college days at NYU over two decades ago. “It was all that [drugs and alcohol], yeah. It was anything I could get my hands on … I liked it all,” he said. “I went [to rehab], I got sober when I was 22 years old.”

The recent lapse lasted only a week, and he’s already back to work on a movie overseas.

Hoffman is set to appear in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this fall. (Holler if you’re excited!)

There Will Be Two Parts To ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’

Lionsgate just announced that Philip Seymour Hoffman will play gamekeeper Plutarch Heavensbee and that The Hunger Games is pulling a Harry Potter/Breaking Dawn and splitting the movie version of Suzanne Collins’ action-packed 390 page book Mockingjay into two parts.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire comes out in November 22, 2013 then part one of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay in the same month but a year later.

The series concludes in 2015 (spoiler: there are no “games” in it). That gives us a good three years to find the next big thing.

A craze worthy of Harry’s long wooden wand, Katniss’ bow-holding shoulders, and Bella Swan’s brooding vampires. I refuse to believe that it’s going to be Fifty Shades Of Grey.
