‘60 Minutes’ To Rebroadcast Philip Seymour Hoffman Interview Sunday
NEW YORK (CBSLA.com) “60 Minutes” will rebroadcast their Philip Seymour Hoffman interview Sunday (CBS2, 7-8 p.m. PT).
In the 2006 interview with correspondent Steve Kroft, Hoffman was candidly open about his past battles with drug addiction.
The Oscar-winning 46-year-old actor was found dead last Sunday — likely from a heroin overdose.
The re-edited interview will include previously un-aired material.
Previews of that material can be viewed online at 60MinutesOvertime.com.
In the original interview, Hoffman says almost immediately upon graduation, he got caught up in New York City’s fast life. “It was all that [drugs and alcohol], yeah, it was anything I could get my hands on…I liked it all,” he said.
But he saw the need to change. “I went [to rehab], I got sober when I was 22 years old. You get panicked…and I got panicked for my life. It really was just that.”
Hoffman won the best actor Oscar in 2006 for his portrayal of troubled “In Cold Blood” writer Truman Capote.
