Philip Seymour Hoffman has built a respectable acting career over the past few years, picking up one awesome role after another. Besides being the man who will play the key part of Plutarch Heavensbee in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," he also happens to be an Academy Award winner, accepting a golden trophy in 2005 for his role in "Capote." With his fourth Oscar nomination this year for his masterful performance in, well, "The Master," the accolades keep raking in for one of Hollywood's finest talents.
Way before Hoffman was being recognized for his work, though, he appeared in a little-known zombie comedy (or "zom com," as we call them now) bullying students and wreaking havoc in his high school hallways. That's right. When Hoffman was just 26 years old, he had a small role in 1993's "My Boyfriend's Back," which centers around a high schooler who returns from the dead and tries to win the heart of his girl crush. Being different in high school sometimes has its problems, and Hoffman happened to be one of them for the student who comes back to life.
Check out this scene as he chases his classmate down the halls with intention of doing serious harm, only to have it backfire. WARNING: Cover your ears if Disney-style name calling is just too much to handle:
And, as an added bonus: "Party of Five" and "Lost" alum Matthew Fox didn't cross the bully's path, but he did make his big-screen debut in the film as the hot jock boyfriend of zombie boy's love interest.
