If you like Philip Seymour Hoffman, see his earlier movies...

Boogie Nights 1997
Hoffman plays Scotty J, an awkward assistant in love with Mark Wahlberg’s character. Set in the Californian porn industry of the 1970s and 1980s.

The Talented Mr Ripley 1999
As Freddie Miles, Hoffman’s character smells a rat with Matt Damon’s duplicitous Ripley and subsequently meets a bloody end.

Along Came Polly 2004
This Ben Stiller comedy is a stinker, but Hoffman plays a very funny supporting role as his best friend, a washed-up former child actor.
