“Fans of the actor took to Twitter to highlight that Charlie Sheen was alive and well at 48 while another arguably superior actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman had tragically passed away,” the darkly satirical site reported.
Nothing like finding the comic silver lining following an untimely death.
In non-pretend pretend news, the Daily Mail reports that although Hoffman had some work yet to be completed for “Mockingjay,” the next in the “Hunger Games” series, filmmakers will be able to use CGI technology to place his likeness where it needs to be.
Various industry reports have indicated that Hoffman had about another week’s worth of filming yet to be completed. The realtor who negotiated the lease on Hoffman’s temporary Atlanta accommodations has said the actor was due to keep his local address until early April.
