There are few actors as skilled as the late Philip Seymour Hoffman when it comes to expressing emotion on camera during a phone call. The humble on-screen phone call may not seem like such a difficult task, but bringing as much out of a scene when you’re the only one in it can’t be that easy. Hoffman’s ability to make it seem so simple only further highlights the immense talent he possessed. From Magnolia to Capote to Almost Famous and, of course, his very loud, and very bold phone scene in Punch-Drunk Love. Take a look back at some of Hoffman’s more famous on-screen calls in the clip above.
