The Rev. James Martin, S.J., recently spoke about the relationship he had with Philip Seymour Hoffman, the late actor who died Sunday, according to The Huffington Post.
Martin and Hoffman worked on a couple of pieces together, including the play “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot,” which Hoffman directed, and “Doubt,” in which Hoffman played Father Brendan Flynn.
“I learned a lot about humility from him,” Martin told The Huffington Post. “Phil treated all the actors — well-known and not-as-well-known — with the same respect and dignity. And in conversation, he would say, 'I'm making a film,' not, 'I'm starring in 'Capote,'' which he was at the time.”
