Most recently as costar in the movie "Phil Spector" and recurring roles on television shows: The Shield (2004-5), Hawaii 5-0 (2015), CSI (2015), The Mentalist (2009) and Castle (2013).

By the early 2000s, Hoffman had a number of different projects under his belt, including "The Dead One" (2007) starring Wilmer Valderrama, "Redbelt" with Chiwetel Ejiofor (2008) and "The Answer Man" (2009) starring Jeff Daniels.

He is also an accomplished theater actor and playwright, earning Ovation awards in 2000 for his one-man show "Uncle Jacques' Symphony," a play that celebrates humanity as a musical metaphor. Its participants are a group of singular characters, all performed by Hoffman, with minimal alteration, played to maximum effect. Men and women, young and old, of different cultures and beliefs vividly come together on stage for ninety minutes. Their personal rhythms, unique harmonies, and the familiar melody of their stories combine to form a symphony of life. Ovation awards for best actor in a play, writing, and best world premiere.
