Sup Travellers?! Phillip Seymour Hoffman's death sent ripples throughout Hollywood. It caught everyone by surprise especially since he was so busy on some amazing movies at the time. A number of people have since paid their respects to the fallen actor. Even the extremely busy George Clooney took time to comment on Hoffman's death.

Before the Tuesday night world premiere of "The Monuments Men," George Clooney, the film's director and star, took a moment to remember Philip Seymour Hoffman. "I wanted to start by saying it's very odd to be here in New York, particularly a couple of days after a good friend of ours has passed away," Clooney said to the crowd at New York's Ziegfeld Theater. "It makes it difficult, and I think it's the elephant in the room for a lot of us here."

Clooney had worked with Hoffman before and so did most of the cast of his new movie. "It's senseless and it's sad. But Phil will be greatly missed," Clooney said. "It's hard to be here tonight with that weighing over us. I just wanted to say that."

Hoffman died on Feb. 2 in his New York apartment following an apparent drug overdose. Investigations are continuing and so far 4 arrests that were tied to his death have been made. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
