"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": "Almost Famous" actor Patrick Fugit remembers Philip Seymour Hoffman

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • The star of "Almost Famous" remembers his time with Philip Seymour Hoffman

“Friendship is the booze they feed you. They want you to get drunk on feeling like you belong.”

So went the lingering words of Lester Bangs (played by the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) in Cameron Crowe’s Oscar-winning film, “Almost Famous,” (2000) a movie dedicated to telling the story of early 1970s rock and roll.

More than a decade since his inspiring performance as the mentor to the film's lead character, on Sunday Hoffman was pronounced dead as the result of what authorities are calling an apparent heroin overdose. Having struggled with substance abuse throughout much of his life, the Oscar-winning actor was found unconscious in his New York apartment by his good friend, playwright and screenwriter, David Bar Katz, reportedly with a needle still in his arm.

In “Almost Famous,” Bangs shares his insight and tutelage with young William Miller (played by Patrick Fugit), who is chasing aspirations of becoming a rock and roll journalist for "Rolling Stone" magazine. The two share many candid and memorable scenes in the film, discussing a wide range of topics including drugs, “being cool” and, naturally, music.

On Tuesday, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed Fugit for a live interview, during which the actor shared memories of his time working with Hoffman, and his reaction to the news of his passing: FULL POST

Roman Polanski's victim on accusations leveled at Woody Allen: "Everybody should pull back and not make this such a public thing"

Amidst the aftermath following Dylan Farrow's accusatory open letter in "The New York Times", during which the adopted daughter of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow alleges sexual abuse at the hands of the entertainment icon, on Tuesday evening Piers Morgan invited Samantha Geimer to share her perspective and insight.

Having been molested herself, by film director Roman Polanski, Geimer finds herself in a unique position to comment on the sex scandal that has resurfaced to pace the news cycle.

In 1977, following the accusations that Geimer leveled at her abuser, it was the elder Farrow who came to Polanski's defense, writing a letter on the director's behalf. Years later, Geimer appreciates the irony, but holds no ill will: FULL POST

"Capote" producer remembers Philip Seymour Hoffman: "[He] brought his 'A' game every time"

On the heels of Sunday's shocking news surrounding the death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, on Monday evening Piers Morgan asked Michael Ohoven to offer his intimate insights on the man who starred in his 2005 film "Capote."

"He was a very private man, he remained humble even after all the success he had with "Capote" and all the movies that followed. He stayed very humble, he never looked for the limelight, I think. I think the limelight found him, but he never looked for it," Ohoven said of Hoffman, who captured the 2005 Best Actor Academy Award for his portrayal of the late American author. "I think he was one of those actors that took his craft very seriously, and got into the business for the right reasons, not for fame or for money, but for the right reasons, to show how great he is at his craft."
