I'm glad to hear that. Like you said before, he brought a lot to the role, and casting someone who couldn't duplicate that depth would take away from the film. Not to mention that just having a different actor, whether he's up to par with Hoffman or not, would disrupt the flow, IMO, the same way that it took some getting used to to switch from Richard Harris to Michael Gambon as Dumbledore.
