Philip Seymour Hoffman was an American actor, director, and producer.
His mother Judge Marilyn O’ Connor went on to recollect her son Phillip as a prominent athlete at Fairport High School. He was seriously injured during his sophomore year and was told it wasn’t safe to play anymore. “His whole identity was gone,” says O’Connor. “So, he ended up acting in the school play. He played Corporal Radar O’Reilly in the play M*A*S*H. After his first night, he made a comment to me… ‘Out of all the home runs I hit, touch downs I’ve made and bases I stole, it never added up to the moment on that stage.’”
