Comedian Nick Frost Recounts Crazy Game He Used To Play With Philip Seymour Hoffman

Posted: Updated:

Comedian Nick Frost sounded off on his relationship with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in a HuffPost Live interview on Tuesday.

"He and I had that thing that I get from time to time with people where you just hit it off, and it felt like I'd known him for years and we had the best time on set," He told host Ricky Camalleri in an appearance to promote his new film "Cuban Fury."

Frost starred alongside Hoffman in the 2009 film "Pirate Radio." Their rapport led to some off-set shenanigans, specifically a bizarre little game the two played for about 30 days, Frost estimated.

"We would start everyday by me assassinating him," he continued. "We had a game where he was sitting outside a cafe, and I came up as an overzealous fan and ended up assassinating him... he would always fall to the floor swearing at me."

"I'm very fortunate to have known him briefly as a man and to have watched the master, I think, of our generation," Frost concluded.
