"Biggest challenge... Well, it's the same challenge you always have, to do right by the story and to try to illuminate it in a way that hopefully is surprising, you know?" REPORTER ASKS "WHAT DID YOU CONNECT WITH MOST IN YOUR CHARACTER?" TO WHICH HOFFMAN RESPONDS: "I connected a lot of it, you know, I think it would be hard for anyone not to kind of connect with the loneliness, he is pretty lonely, he's a very driven, obsessive guy, you know, he's not unforgiving, of himself in a lot of ways, and there's a lot of people carry in one way or another."

This could be one of the last interviews with Philip Seymour Hoffman as he was interviewed as he attended last month’s Sundance Film Festival to promote, “A Most Wanted Man”. The Oscar winning actor was found dead in his Manhattan home on Sunday from an apparent drug overdose.

Hoffman has been candid in the past discussing his battle with addiction. A full autopsy will be conducted today. Now, the world will remember him by his body of work that he leaves behind as his legacy, which cements him as one of the greatest actors of our time.
