"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."

Hoffman died in his New York City apartment on Sunday and law enforcement sources have told CNN that the 46-year-old was found with a needle in his arm, which leads investigators to believe it was an accidental drug overdose. Having spent much of his career saddled by the "character actor" label, Ohoven told Morgan that despite the strength he drew from in his work, Hoffman wasn't able to stave off his own self-destructive demons:

"He selected movie roles very well, as well. We had to break through it with Capote, before, that he was not clearly a leading man, and I think he proved what a true leading man he is ... he's a man that brought, really, his 'A' game every time," Ohoven told the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "He was incredibly dedicated, he had incredible will power. And yet, even to somebody with that will power, ultimately that's the demise that he succumbed to."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Ohoven, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
