psh candle vigil

The Broadway community paid tribute to one of the greatest to ever grace a New York stage on Wednesday night.

Hundreds gathered to remember Philip Seymour Hoffman as theater marquees and the lights of Broadway went dark for one minute at 7:45 pm.

A candlelight vigil was also held in his honor outside the Labyrinth Theater, where Hoffman was a company member for nearly 20 years.

Reverend Jim Martin, a fellow Labyrinth member, addressed the crowd about the passing of the Oscar-winning actor, saying:

"We come together tonight in a spirit of terrible mourning and incredible loss. But we also come together to celebrate a remarkable life."

Philip Seymour Hoffman, 46, died of an apparent heroin overdose on Sunday. He will be laid to rest in a private funeral on Friday.

    So people are sad that he died from a drug overdose? What? Stop making it okay to do drugs and die. Stop feeling sad for people who decide to do any drug and die. Whats sad is that if you die from drugs you get remembered for being something great. What role models, i just don't get it.

    The death of actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who died Sunday with a syringe full heroine stuck in his arm, is being lamented by many, but not by me. Hoffman narrated an antigun cartoon which demonizes gun ownership along with actress Julianne Moore and of course, it was financed by MAIG. The media is falling all over themselves saying what a wonderful guy he was, what a wonderful actor he was, and on and on. I disagree. People like Hoffman are part of the drug culture that is destroying our young people and tearing the fabric of this county apart.
    As far as I am concerned, he played his last and greatest role-that of a bad example. Hopefully he willed his "stash" to some of his drug addicted antigun buddies in the entertainment "industry".
