When Philip Seymour Hoffman appeared at the American Film Market in 1999, he was almost famous. In the 10 years since his graduation from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in 1989, the actor had alternated theater roles with memorable turns in such indie films as Boogie Nights and The Big Lebowski and was building a following as one of the industry's finest supporting actors. The then-32-year-old caught the attention of Hollywood with his ability to turn a minor role into a grand performance and give an honest voice to even the most dysfunctional of characters. Just six years later, Hoffman would play the lead in his old friend Bennett Miller's Capote, which earned him an Oscar for best actor.
