Academy Award winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has paid tribute to his late pal Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died from an apparent drug overdose in his Manhattan Apartment, by writing an essay on him.

The creator of 'The West Wing', who grew close to Hoffman on the set of Charlie Wilson's 'War' while discussing fatherhood and their drug addiction, wrote in Time Magazine that it was not unusual for them to have mini-AA meetings as people like them are the only ones to whom tales of insanity don't sound insane, Us Magazine reported.

The 52-year-old writer said that the 'Capote' star had once told him that if one of them dies of an overdose, then probably 10 people who were about to won't because their deaths would make news and maybe scare someone clean.

Sorkin continued saying that Hoffman was a "kind, decent, magnificent and thunderous actor" who was never outwardly 'right' for any role but who completely dominated the real estate upon which every one of his characters walked.

He added that Hoffman didn't die because he was partying too hard or because he was depressed, but died because he was an addict on a day of the week with a y in it.
