Philip Seymour Hoffman

Oscar nomination

10 Jan, 2013

Seymour Hoffman is nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 85th Academy Awards for portraying Lancaster Dodd in The Master. He speaks on the role:

He’s a fictitious character. So I tried to think of a lot of other things, in myself. I was very literal about it. I wasn’t interested in playing L Ron Hubbard, because, ultimately, it wasn’t his story, so I didn’t want it to be confusing.
