to:

%%* MasterOfDisguise* MethodActing: Especially in his early years, he was practically the personification of method acting, going to extreme lengths to not just play a character but to become him completely. Upon learning that Hoffman was keeping himself awake for days on end to look believably drained on film, Sir Laurence Olivier quipped: "My dear boy, why don't you try acting? It's much easier."



* RoleEndingMisdemeanor: There have been many accusations of rape and sexual harassment thrown at Hoffman in recent months. Time will tell if they will end his career.
* StarMakingRole: ''Film/TheGraduate''.




to:

* 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 ''Film/FindingNeverland'', ''Film/IHeartHuckabees'', ''Film/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.
