Hoffman describes
impersonating Capote

It took more than a high-pitched voice for Philip Seymour Hoffman to impersonate Truman Capote in the new movie Capote. "It was a certain way his mouth functioned, the way his tongue functioned, the way his head was that all fed into the way he sounded," Hoffman told AP Radio in a recent interview. "And then there was a rhythm to the way he talked." Hoffman said he lost weight and wore certain clothes to make himself appear smaller, "but then the way he stands, the way he walks, all these things are going to affect all that stuff." Playing Capote is Hoffman's biggest role yet, but the 38-year-old actor said he doesn't care if the film fails to land him other lead roles. "I don't think that that's really important," said Hoffman, whose screen credits also include roles in The Talented Mr. Ripley, Magnolia, and Almost Famous. "You don't want a lead acting role if you're not the one that's supposed to be playing it. I'm perfectly satisfied with the career I've had." (AP)
