Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead yesterday at his home in Manhattan. Film critic Ty Burr joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to remember some of the highlights of Hoffman’s career.

Hoffman played the charismatic cult leader in “The Master,” author Truman Capote in “Capote” — which we spoke to him about in October 2005 — and most recently, head gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
