Philip Seymour Hoffman was an intimidating, intense teacher on "Almost Famous," the movie's young star Patrick Fugit recalls. Fugit, who played aspiring rock journalist William Miller, said he was initially intimidated by Hoffman's method approach to his character, which made him stand-offish to others on the set. When it came time to film a scene, Hoffman led by doing and expected his young co-star to rise to his level. "Philip was very forward with me, in a school-of-hard-knocks way," Fugit explains in a first-person essay in Tuesday's
New York Post. "It was almost like when you go on a hike with your dad, and your dad just hikes the mountain and expects you to keep up. That’s the way Philip did the scenes. There was a certain weight that came with him. There was sort of a darkness. That’s part of what made his acting so compelling and complete."
