Phil Hoffman... Our Fairport Boy
Phil Hoffman graduated from Fairport High School and was such a hometown hero here, I can't tell you. He would come back and talk to classes about films and film-making. My own son saw him and was so inspired. His mom is a respected judge and it's just so damn sad. That's him in my favorite film 'The Talented Mr. Ripley" right before uttering my fave line "Tommy, Tommy, Tommy".
I saw him at the post office one year and stood there like an idiot with my mouth open. He just smiled, shook his head a bit and walked by. I knew I knew him, but didn't where from-- lol. Didn't hit me until he left.
RIP. You will be missed. Such a talent.
