Dustin Hoffman

Recommended Posts

Yesterday Dustin Hoffman turned 80.A very distinguished American actor who's starred in some very memorable indeed iconic  films and roles especially The Graduate with Anne Bancroft. A real talent. 

Given that he's had some health issues in recent years mainly being treated for cancer in around 2013,his age and his worth proved as a well known actor. I felt it was time this film legend had his own dedicated thread.

Ratso Rizzo died on a bus in Florida, will Dustin outlive Florida as the oceans rise?

Could turn out to be tragic! My thoughts are already with his loved ones at this difficult time, sad news, etc.

It's dire with Charles Durning being one of the few redeemable features, imo!

I must say, Dustin Hoffman's greatest role, was when he played the dictator/tyrant Captain Hook.  When the movie came out, I was shocked that they had not cast a black actor for Hook, like Danny Glover and James Earl Jones, but Dustin did it well.

For me it would have to be The Graduate. So charismatic in that sexually charged role. He won an Oscar for Rainman which many film buffs felt wasn't his best work.
