Most major casting-directors in Hollyjewed are kike.

Queer character vs Negro vs Queer character vs Kike vs Propaganda-whore character for The Kike:

I guess Hoffman really hated himself, because his career was playing pathetic characters. As far as I remember, he first came to prominence as the evil/bully "WASP" in The Scent Of Al Pacino's Career Decomposing, then as a creepy queer loser in porn-hommage Boogie Nights, then as an adult creepy/bizarre "WASP" in the Coen Kike-brothers' Big Lebowski. , then as a draq "queen" in Kike Joel Schumacher's Flawless (The Scent of Robert De Niro's Career Decomposing). Then a Kike Oscar for playing a real camp and vicious queer, in a movie basically about dumb White killers. Then in Kike Mike Nichols' Charlie Wilson's Kike War, and as a villain vs Scientoligist creep Tom Cruise in Kike JJ Abrams' Mission Impossible III. Starred in Kike Sid Lumet's last flick, Before The Devil Knows You're Dead, and in Kike David Mamet's State & Main. Et kikera.

Here Hoffman is with the author/playwright of Doubt, in which he co-starred with Meryl Streep (who became famous via LOLoco$t flick Sophie's Choice That Was Forced On Her By The Eeeeeevil NATZEES!, and in Kike Kramer vs Kramer). The playwright says he wasn't really into the whole "Pedophile Priest" angle of Doubt, but obviously the kike producer Rudin was. Also it just had to be about a likkle oppressed Negro boy, oy vey! The interviewer for The Kike's New York Times is Kike Lynn Hirschberg. So, as per usual in Hollyjewed & Broadway, most of the talent is White, and the spin and the money is almost all kike.

The couple had three children and were together for 14 years

The magazine claimed 46-year-old's confusion over his sexuality and his drug use destroyed his relationship with Mimi

New York City's Chief Medical Examiner has said that Philip Seymour Hoffman's cause of death is 'pending further studies'

By James Nye, The Daily Mail, 5 February 2014

The man who found tragic Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman dead on his bathroom floor is taking legal action against a supermarket tabloid magazine in the United States after it accused him of having a gay affair with the actor.

Playwright David Bar Katz, 44, categorically denies that he spoke to the National Enquirer after it attributed a direct quote to him claiming the troubled actor was his lover and that he saw him freebasing cocaine the night before he died in his West Village drugs den.

The interview that ran in Wednesday's edition of the popular magazine alleged that 46-year-old Hoffman's confusion over his sexual identity caused his relationship with the mother of his three children, Mimi O'Donnell, to collapse and fueled his destructive spiral into drug addiction.

However, as he left the home of Mimi O'Donnell today, Katz denied ever making those comments to The National Enquirer.

'I never said that, no,' said David Bar Katz in reference to the quotes the magazine directly attributed to him.

Katz's flat-out denial came after a friend of the screenwriter attacked the National Enquirer report as a 'vulgar and disgusting lie' and that Katz will take legal action.

'This is a categorical, 100% vulgar and disgusting lie,' said the friend, who asked not to identified.

'Even the National Enquirer should be ashamed. It's just disgusting. There will be legal action.'

'He never spoke to them,' said the friend. 'This is so far off from reality. We're calling lawyers now to threaten them appropriately.'

Katz's denial was followed by a statement in which he vowed to file a lawsuit.

'The Enquirer story is 100% false, including the claim that I gave the Enquirer an interview,' Katz said in the statement.

On Monday, one day after Hoffman was found in his underwear with a needle sticking out of his left arm on his bathroom floor, Katz claimed to be shocked at the circumstances.

'I saw him last week, and he was clean and sober, his old self,' said David Bar Katz, who found Hoffman along with the actor's personal assistant, Isabella Wing-Davey and called 911.

'I really thought this chapter was over.'

Despite being notoriously private about his personal life, he was a regular figure around the $4.4 million West Village apartment he lived in with his partner of 14-years, Mimi, 46, and his three children, Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7 and Willa, 5.

Neighbors reported him to be friendly and unassuming and unlike other, more high-maintenance celebrities who live the area.
But two weeks ago, talented Hoffman - star of Moneyball, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Boogie Nights - admitted to a complete stranger that he was a heroin addict and just before Christmas told another stranger on the street that his addiction would kill him.

His relapse had seen him attend rehab in May of last year, but friends said that the star was unable to stay clean.

Hoffman met O'Donnell in 1999 on the set of the play, 'In Arabia We'd All Be Kings', where she was working as a costume designer.

While happy to engage with fans on the streets of Manhattan, Hoffman was asked about his shyness once.

'Somebody wanted me to talk about my personal life,' Hoffman told The Independent in 2012.

'I'd rather not because my family doesn't have any choice. If I talk about them in the press, I'm giving them no choice. So I choose not to.'

On the pressures of being a father and his frequent travels, Hoffman was equally thoughful and claimed to be blessed.

'It's hard for anybody who works a lot and has children,' Hoffman told People magazine about being a father in 2007.

'But I wouldn't trade it for anything. When you become a parent, you look at your parents differently. You look at being a child differently. It's an awakening, a revelation that you have.'

Unable to keep his inner demons and drug problems under wraps, Hoffman's addiction began to affect his work on the set of Hunger Games, claims The National Enquirer.

'No one discussed Philip's drug addiction in front of him, but the studio knew during filming there was a risk,' said a source with knowledge of the film set.

'Philip was often passed out on the set before his scenes. His ongoing addiction was common knowledge to everyone on set.'

Indeed, as he was promoting his films Gods Pocket and A Most Wanted Man at the Sundance Festival two weeks ago, Hoffman looked drug addled, disheveled and admitted to a stranger he was a heroin addict.

It was on Sunday morning that Katz received a frantic phone call from Mimi O'Donnell after the 46-year-old actor failed to collect Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7 and Willa, 5, from her at 9am as arranged.

Katz phoned Isabella Wing-Davey to get her to come down to the $10,000 a month apartment that Hoffman was renting on Bethune Street in New York's fashionable West Village.

The two of them made their horrific discovery at around 11.30am and phoned emergency services at 11.36am to come and try and save the stricken star.

He was declared dead on the arrival of the paramedics and removed from his apartment at around 7pm on Sunday evening.

Katz found the star of Almost Famous and The Ides of March dressed only in his shorts and t-shirt, with a hypodermic needle sticking out of his left arm.

He was still wearing his spectacles.

In and around the luxury two bedroom apartment were distressing signs of Hoffman's drug problem.

Police sources have indicated that up to 70 used and unopened bags of heroin were dotted around the home - as were photographs of the Oscar winner's children.

Indeed, sources close to the couple have revealed the battle behind closed doors that was carrying on for Mimi and Phlilp.

'She clearly wanted him around, but she wanted him healthy,' a source close to both the dead star told The Daily News on Tuesday.

It was thought that Hoffman's addiction caused O'Donnell to kick him out of the $4.4 million New York City family home he shared with her and his three children around three months ago.

'It was known that he was struggling to stay sober, and girlfriend Mimi O’Donnell had given him some tough love and told him he needed some time away from the kids and to get straight again,’ a Hollywood source said according to the New York Post.

Hoffman went into rehab and was released just before Christmas. He started going to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings on Perry Street in the upmarket Manhattan neighborhood of the West Village.

'He was a gentleman,' said 58-year-old Eddie Donohoe, a regular at the meetings to the New York Daily News.

'He was like a regular guy. He'd be polite, well-dressed, very sociable to people. Have his coffee, hang out with the guys across the street, answering the guys' questions.'

But then suddenly, just before Christmas he stopped going to AA and instead started frequenting the Automatic Slims bar.

'He'd come in late at night alone, sit at the bar and have a cocktail and not really talk to anyone,' said playwright Marc Spitz.

And as police go through his cellphone records and computer, new details have emerged of how the actor bought the drugs which ended his life.

Surveillance footage from his local convenience store which allegedly shows a 'very sweaty' Hoffman withdrawing $1,200 in six separate transactions and handing it to two men carrying messenger bags.

Sources with law enforcement have revealed that no cash was found in side Hoffman's West Village apartment on the Sunday he was found dead surrounded by 70 bags of heroin and 20 used syringes.

The New York Post has spoken to a witness who said that Hoffman secured his fix from two men outside of a D'Agostino's a stone's throw away from his West Village apartment on Saturday night.

And on Tuesday, suspected heroin dealers were arrested at a Manhattan drug den on Tuesday night following a tip-off that they may have sold the deadly drug to Hoffman.

Robert Vineberg, 57, and Thomas Kushman 48, were arrested in the police swoop and charged with felony drug possession.

Musician Max Rosenblum and drama student girlfriend Juliana Luchkiw, both 22, were arrested and charged with misdemeanor drug possession.

The gang were arrested at 302 Mott Street in the pricey Nolita district of Manhattan at 7.30pm after police received a tip-off that Hoffman had been sold heroin at the address a few months ago

None of the packages had the 'Ace of Spades' stamp found on bags at Hoffman's home, a police source told the New York Post.

'I saw Philip a couple of months ago and I almost didn't recognize him. He was unshaven and he didn't look very happy,' said Gwyne Duncan, 45, a painter who lives across the road from Hoffman.

Another neighbor, Nathan Driver, who often saw Hoffman in the neighborhood, said that, 'He had a big heart, but it always seemed a bit heavy.'

Barbara Myers, 73, who lived next door to Mimi and Philip when he was still at the family home said that it was all just tragic.

'He was a genius. Just a lost, wonderful soul. A great guy. A doll. Always looked like a shclepper, baseball cap and hair this way and that, riding around on his bike.'

In an eerie coincidence, just the day before Hoffman's death, several news outlets wrote stories reporting a hoax claim that the actor had died.

'I almost believe Philip had a death wish,' said another source to The National Enquirer. 'He was too deep, too private, too sensitive.

'It's like all the craziness of celebrity was just too much for him.'
