PORTRAIT

Strictly a character actor, and a remarkably good one, Hoffman burst onto the scene and became a modern movie star overnight after starring in Mike Nichols' The Graduate in 1967. In the process, Hoffman redefined the leading-man role, and together with figures such as Robert Redford and Warren Beatty, he came to epitomize the new male ideal of the 1970s: sensitive, soft, intellectual and fashion-conscious. Hoffman excelled in a number of highly relevant political and social films during the 1970s, notably All the President's Men and Kramer vs. Kramer, before turning to more commercial material in the 1980s in films such as Tootsie, Rain Man and Hook. Nevertheless, his performances never faltered, and Hoffman has remained one of Hollywood's most consistent and qualitative performers for more than 40 years.
