Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s Long Awaited Street Cred

Black woman: Oh, look at this, ‘The Collected Stories of Truman Capote.’ Wow, he really looks like who played him!
Black man: Let me see that. What? You think that looks like me?
Black woman: No, no, he looks like what’s-his-name, you know, the guy who played him in the movie.
Black man: Oh! Shit, I thought you said ‘he looks like you, playa.‘
Black woman: Are you crazy?
Black man: He does dress like a nigga, though.
