Dustin Hoffman

Why the Long Face?

3/15/2012 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0315_dustin_hoffman_npgNot to beat a dead horse -- but Dustin Hoffman didn't look too happy today in L.A. ... hours after hearing HBO had cancelled his new show "Luck."

As we reported, the network shut down the racetrack-themed series after a 3rd horse died on set.

I can understand the long face. Rainman was making a cool million per episode. Horses die on the track all the time, TMZ is way out of line

Horse deaths were tragic accidents. Does PETA or TMZ care as much for the 200+ people now out of work ?????????? Think about that for "ethical" treatment.

I am not one to turn the channel because I am offended but the show tonight about "Luck" was just poor taste. Shame on TMZ. I am not an animal right activist but come on TMZ you are digging deep for so called "entertainment".

Dustin should have filmed the horse racing segment of movie here in Tryon, NC where the availablity of physically fit and mentallty sound "race" type horses that would have matched the profile needed for the movie. The infrastructure and surrounding environment would be excellent for filming with the small town atmosphere and equine related scenes readily available with a race track, show grounds, and good ole southern hospitality that respect and care for their equine partners. Dustin needs to change his "Luck."

GOOD!!!! Three dead horses is enough. Now, let's make horse racing, bull fights, etc., ALL illegal before more animals die. And no, I don't want to hear about the "200 plus" people out of jobs just because they canceled the show. These are actors....THEY HAVE MONEY!!!!

You guys all s ck. Dustin Hoffman is the greatest ever and you punks don't know your head from blah blah! The movie Luck was great if your the horse business. And all that are ignorant to it have no idea. Louisiana has a great film following and I think Dustin come to la. We will always welcome you. And more savvy to the horse business than the face lifting La,ca
