Laura Linney on Philip Seymour Hoffman in ‘The Master’

SAG Preview: Actors on Actors - Linney on Hoffman

There’s one thing to make choices and then there’s another to apply it to the work and have it integrate into something that doesn’t just look like a choice. And I just loved every move that Phil made in ‘The Master’: the voice, that very inclusive, slightly matinee-idol kind of like a bouquet, that voice. And his physical carriage, the sense of power he had. I loved him drinking that hooch and the reaction after he would drink that stuff. Yeah.
