Guirgis Talks About Philip Seymour Hoffman

Playwright and UAlbany alum Stephen Adly Guirgis talks about his close friend and artistic collaborator Philip Seymour Hoffman during his visit to the Writers Institute in 2010.

A theater director as well as an actor, Hoffman directed five plays written by Guirgis for New York City's award-winning LAByrinth Theatre Company.

The Oscar-winning actor and upstate New York native died earlier this month of a drug overdose.
