60 Minutes will rebroadcast the Philip Seymour Hoffman interview in which the actor discusses his problems with addiction that may have led to his death this week.

The interview conducted by Steve Kroft in 2006 will be re-edited to include previously un-broadcast material, including more from the actor about the rehabilitation he underwent as a young man that he credited with saving his life. The re-edited story will be broadcast on 60 Minutes Sunday, Feb. 9 (7:00-8:00PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

In the original interview, Hoffman tells Kroft he was fresh out of New York University's drama school when he was lured into New York City's fast life. "It was all that [drugs and alcohol], yeah, it was anything I could get my hands on...I liked it all," he said.

But he saw the need to change early. "I went [to rehab], I got sober when I was 22 years old," said the then-38-year-old Oscar nominee. "You get panicked...and I got panicked for my life," says Hoffman. "It really was just that."

He also realized that getting sober before he got famous was a blessing. "I have so much empathy for these young actors that are 19 and all of a sudden they're beautiful and famous and rich," Hoffman says. "I'm like, 'Oh my God. I'd be dead.' You know what I mean? I'd be 19, beautiful, famous and rich. That would be it," he told Kroft. "I think back at that time. I think if I had the money, that kind of money and stuff. So, yeah, [I would have died]."

Hoffman, 46, was found dead Sunday in his New York apartment, where authorities found packets of heroin and a syringe.
