Dustin Hoffman Tells Stephen Colbert He Was Cut Out of the Movie ‘Quartet’


Telling an actor they’re cut out of your movie is probably the hardest thing a director has to do, and Dustin Hoffman chose to break the news to Stephen Colbert on national TV last night that his performance in his movie Quintet (now titled Quartet) has been left on the cutting room floor. To be fair, it doesn’t look like Colbert’s spoon-playing character fits into the film based on the short clip Hoffman plays, but it is going to be pretty distracting watching that movie and wondering why the classical music ensemble doesn’t have a spoon player.
