Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Oscar-winning actor who played everything from a maverick CIA agent to a drag queen, has died. He was 46.

According to ABC News, Hoffman was found in his Manhattan apartment at 35 Bethune St. in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan this morning morning, according to the New York Police Department, which is investigating.

The cause of death has not yet been determined, but according to NYPD sources, there was evidence of injectable drugs found at the scene.

Hoffman won the Best Actor Academy Award and the Golden Globe Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his leading role in the 2005 film "Capote," which detailed the five-year period during which author Truman Capote penned "In Cold Blood."

He was nominated for three Best Supporting Actor Oscars, for "The Master," "Doubt," and "Charlie Wilson's War."
