Congratulations to Washington Life Associate Publisher John Arundel on sharing his thoughts on the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, whom he met 3 times, yesterday on ”Good Morning America,” CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” NBC’s “Nightly News with Brian Williams,” “Access Hollywood,” “Inside Edition,” and on the front page of The New York Post. During a conversation with Hoffman a mere weeks ago at Sundance, Arundel recounts the actor confessing, “I’m a heroin addict.”

Some are accusing Arundel of grandstanding (see his Facebook post after the jump), a charge he denies. We think his new Facebook profile picture -snapped on set, live, from Good Morning America! -speaks for itself though. Great smile, John!
