Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead of an apparent drug overdose late Sunday morning in his New York City apartment, police said.

The New York Police Department is investigating, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is working to determine the exact cause of death. Mr. Hoffman, 46 years old, was found dead at his apartment on Bethune Street in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan, police said.
