Iconic film critic Roger Ebert wanted Philip Seymour Hoffman in biopic
Late legendary film reviewer Roger Ebert's widow has revealed her husband wanted Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died from an apparent drug overdose in his Manhattan apartment, to play him in a biopic.
At the screening of 'Life Itself', a new documentary based on her hubby, Chaz Ebert said that Roger always said that if anyone made a movie on him, the 'Capote' star should play him, the New York Post reported.
Chaz asserted that Hoffman was one of the most versatile actors ever and a brilliant human being and just very smart.
