* TypeCasting: Averted by the sheer volume of different roles he has played. Though starting somewhere post-2000, he started playing a lot of eccentric, quirky mentors/father figures, as seen in films like ''FindingNeverland'', ''Film/IHeartHuckabees'', ''Literature/BarneysVersion'', ''Film/StrangerThanFiction'', ''Film/MeetTheFockers'', and ''Film/MrMagoriumsWonderEmporium''. Subverted with ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', where he's less of a CloudCuckooLander and more stern and bemused by his bombastic pupil.

For one thing, when he first tried getting work, it was a 10 year struggle in the New York theater scene considering he was as un-movie star-like as you can get: short, big nosed and Jewish with the air of a shy introvert. However, perceptive directors like Mike Nichols realized what he could do; for example, in ''Film/TheGraduate'' in 1967, he took the world by storm with a powerful sincerity in his performance which took MethodActing to its height. Furthermore, he is credited for expanding the possibilities for different ethnicities to reach Hollywood stardom during the NewHollywood era as an actor who defied the stereotypes to hit it big his way.

Even better, if you are cast with him in a film he cares about and Hoffman feels your acting is not good enough for him, cancel your free time because you're in for some tutoring from him. If all goes well, you'll end up doing the best performance of your career because of what he taught you (for example, take a look at Creator/WillFerrell's performance in ''Film/StrangerThanFiction''). For instance, the fact that Creator/JackBlack had some of his most acclaimed acting in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' is no accident, considering Hoffman insisted on coaching him through the {{Action Film Quiet Drama Scene}}s.

* DoingItForTheArt
* MasterOfDisguise
* MethodActing
* NiceJewishBoy
* PenName: He was created as "Sam Etic" for his appearance on ''{{The Simpsons}}'', a sly reference to his being Jewish.
* StarMakingRole: ''Film/TheGraduate''
* TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside: Realized this when preparing for ''{{Tootsie}}''. When made-up to look like a woman, Hoffman asked the make up artist to make him look more beautiful. The artist told him that's as good as he was going to look. Looking at himself as a woman he had an epiphany. In an AFI interview in 2002 he tearfully admitted there were too many interesting women he ignored before that moment because they didn't fit the standard of beauty that society had instilled in him.
