He was a neighbor of Mel Brooks in New York and was set to play the role of Franz Liebkind in Brooks’ first film, The Producers (1967). Just before production was to commence, Hoffman was offered the role of Ben Braddock in The Graduate (1967), co-starring Brooks’ wife Anne Bancroft, and asked to be let out of his contract. The role of Liebkind eventually went to Kenneth Mars.
