He's being remembered as the greatest character actor of his generation. Oscar and Tony award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffmann was laid to rest this Friday in New York. Hoffmann was found dead at the age of 46 last week, the result of an apparent heroin overdose. His death has highlighted a disturbing phenomenon - the number of heroin users in the US has nearly doubled in the past five years.
