More Work For Hoffman In Europe

Published on December 11, 2007 with No Comments

Dustin Hoffman plans to continue his acting career in Europe – because he has become a victim of Hollywood ageism.

The 70-year-old Rain Ran star struggles to win leading roles in the US because he is now considered a veteran of the industry – but feels European filmmakers are more willing to give an older actor top billing.

“I might get the father who’s dying or an Alzheimer’s part. That’s why I don’t work that much and why I want to work in Europe right now,” he says. “I have a much better shot at my age of getting a lead role. No one writes leads for people my age unless you’re a signature actor who carries a gun and has a little more longevity.”
