NEW YORK (AP) - Police say Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has been found dead in his New York City apartment. He was 46.

Hoffman was found dead Sunday afternoon in his Manhattan home. His cause of death wasn't officially determined.

Hoffman, who was no matinee idol figure with his tubby, lumpy build and limp blond hair, made his career mostly as a character actor. He was nominated for Oscars four times in all, winning in 2005 for "Capote."

One of his breakthrough roles came as a gay member of a porno film crew in "Boogie Nights." He often played comic, slightly off-kilter characters in movies like "The Big Lebowski" and "Almost Famous." More recently, he had a role in "Moneyball" as the grumpy manager of the Oakland Athletics.
