    This cannot be true, right? I really, really hope this is just a widely misreported non-fact because I am absolutely going to cry...

    So horrible. He was one of my favorite actors. Hopefully he is at peace now.

    Unfortunately I think it is true. It is on HuffingtonPost and they are trust-worthy.

    This is so sad. He was in rehab for heroin last year,so it's not a total surprise. But still very, very sad. Addiction sucks.

    I just got a text alert on my phone, so sadly I'd say it's true. What a loss...

    Wow. I"m stunned. ..annd shocked. It feels like it came out of nowhere, even though we know his past.

    To quote CNN, this is like a robbery. Many stars have died, and each one is tragic, but this feels like we've been robbed of a great talent. He lent credibility and gravitas to almost any role, any film in which he particpated. He was not flashy and always in the spotlight like some train wreck waiting to happen. It shows that drugs and demons are hard to fight and can be a struggle no matter who you are.

    RIP :(

    I'm devastated at the news.

    He was such a brilliant actor. This is a terrible loss to film and theater.

    I found this quote from him at IMBD:

    As hard as he fought, his difficulties overtook him,
    Such a tragedy.

    @$&*!!!!! Just can't believe it. Loved him as an actor ever since I saw him in "Happiness," and I thought and hoped that he had his addiction under control.

    I loved him in 'Capote' and just about every movie I saw him in. I had no idea he was battling addiction.

    From all the reports I've been reading, he had been sober for 23 years and admitted to "falling off the wagon" sometime last year. That is so tragic- to be able to stay sober for so long and then one slip puts you back on a path that ultimately ends like this...

    WHAT??!!???!!

    This is weird. I just watched The Caine Mutiny earlier in the day, and was so impressed by Humphrey Bogart's versatility . It made me think of which male actor today is as versatile, and I thought Sean Penn and Philip Seymour Hoffman. To now hear this!! I wasn't even aware of his drug/alcohol addiction.
