The New York Police Department is investigating, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is working to determine the exact cause of death. The official said Mr. Hoffman, 46 years old, was found dead at his apartment at 35 Bethune St. in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

Mr. Hoffman won the Academy Award for Best Actor for the 2005 film, “Capote.”

The actor was found in the bathroom of his fourth floor apartment in the Pickwick House around 11:15 a.m. by a screenwriter, who called 911, the official said.

The accomplished actor and director won the Academy Award for best actor for his role as famed author Truman Capote the 2005 film “Capote,” and a strong following in New York’s theater scene, starring in plays like 2012’s “Death of a Salesman” and directing others, like 1999’s “In Arabia, We’d All Be Kings.” He was nominated for a Tony Award three times.

According to the New York Post, the actor was found by police officer with needle in his arm.

The brilliant actor publicly struggled with drug abuse over the last decade, entering rehab as recently as May of last year after going on a heroin binge. The actor credited  “a great group of friends and family” with saving his life.

“It was all that (drugs and alcohol), yeah. It was anything I could get my hands on…I liked it all,”  he told “60 Minutes” in an interview.

Hoffman is survived by three children with his partner, Mimi O’Donnell.
