NEW YORK (KCBS/AP) — Philip Seymour Hoffman, who won the Oscar for best actor in 2006 for his portrayal of writer Truman Capote and created a gallery of other vivid characters, many of them slovenly and somewhat dissipated, was found dead Sunday in his apartment with what officials said was a needle in his arm. He was 46.

KCBS entertainment reporter Jan Wahl spoke on Sunday about the Oscar-winning actor’s extraordinary career.
