Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Oscar-winning actor who played everything from a maverick CIA agent to a drag queen to a Catholic priest, has died. He was 46.

Police sources say Hoffman was found unconscious at around 11:15 this morning on the bathroom floor of his New York apartment at 35 Bethune Street in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan by friend and screenwriter David Katz, who called 911. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
