    Watch Philip Seymour Hoffman in A Most Wanted Man: See the Actor in One of His Final Roles

    The world continues to mourn the shocking loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman, but his talents will be showcased a few more times on the big screen.

    Hoffman has a few more projects that are slated to release in the coming years, including the John le Carré adaptation A Most Wanted Man, directed by Anton Corbijn. In this sneak peek, fans can once again be reminded of the exceptional talent possessed by the star as he plays the role of a German intelligence agent Gunther Bachmann, who is a hard-living spy that runs a covert anti-terrorism unit.

    The film, which also stars Rachel McAdams and Willem Dafoe, was screened at the Sundance Film Festival recently and is scheduled to hit theaters later this year.

    In what would become one of his last interviews before his death, the actor chatted with E! News at the premiere of the thriller at Sundance. When asked if he ever thought he'd play a German spy, he said, "I never thought I'd play any of the roles I played."

    The 46-year-old actor was found dead in his New York City apartment on Sunday, Feb. 2 after an apparent drug overdose. The Oscar winner's body was discovered by a friend Sunday morning after Hoffman didn't show up to get his three kids from their mother's house, as was previously scheduled.

    A law enforcement source told E! News the Oscar winner was found on the bathroom floor, dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, with a needle sticking out of his left arm, and two plastic envelopes allegedly containing heroin were found next to his body.

    He is survived by his longtime partner, Mimi O'Donnell, and their three children.
