Philip Seymour Hoffman as Father Brendan Flynn in Doubt.

Miramax Films

Philip Seymour Hoffman stars opposite Meryl Streep in Doubt, a new film based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play.

His character, a young and charismatic priest, provokes a nun's suspicion for his special attention to their Bronx-based school's only black student.

Hoffman, a popular and versatile character actor, most recently starred in Synecdoche, New York. His other films include Capote, for which he received an Oscar for Best Actor, and the Coen brothers cult-classic The Big Lebowski.
