Heath Ledger Dead.

Not sure if this is better under movies...


January 22, 2008 -- Actor Heath Ledger was found dead today in a Broome Street apartment, apparently from a drug overdose.

Ledger, 28, was well known for his role in "Brokeback Mountain," and he stars in the upcoming "The Dark Knight" Batman movie as the Joker.

He split last year from wife, Michelle Williams, with whom he has a daughter, Matilda.

When he was found this afternoon, pills were strewn across his bedroom, according to his housekeeper. It was unclear if it was an intentional or accidental death.

The housekeeper let in a massaeuse who tried to wake Ledger, and found him unresponsive at 3:20 p.m. The massaeuse then noticed sleeping pills strewn around his room and called paramedics at 3:26 p.m.

The father of one was pronounced dead at 3:35 p.m.

okay.

that's a bit tasteless though. guy had problems in his private life, broke up with the mother of his child last year... wonder if he had something going on.

such a shame. i think the joker role would have been such a brilliant career thing from him. award winner possibly. wonder what they'll do...

no rumors about the movie being pulled.

I can't see that happening because of the cost involved. But it will be cheap publicity for it.

Have you see the trailor for it? He seems to fit the part rather well. Maybe he stressed being typecast.

The NYPost hints at accidental drug overdose as the cause.

How awful......I mean, he had so much going for him. It's sad that famous people can't turn to anyone and get help without it turning into a Movie-Of-The-Week.....He will be missed.

aye, i read about 10 articles through before posting that one. my post is the NYPOST one. alot had bugger all in them but that was okay.

the MTV one says that foul play hasn't been ruled out.

and yeah, i've seen trailers. i just wondering if they'll do some kind of dedication or whatever, or pause the release until the case is shut and suchlike... depends how the family feel too.

some people go crazy about seeing their dead family members on screen. some want it more. there's a guy over here who was in several different car insurance commercials that have been running for ages, the commercials ran for a good year or so. he filmed loads of different ones and was dead about 6 months before most of them aired. his family said it was great to see him alive and smiling again. some people object though.

I can't wait to see the film.

He was supposed to be filming for " The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus " a Terry Gilliam film to be released in 2009.

If they need a replacement, I know a guy who resembles him. In fact, I'd say their smiles were identical.

But nevertheless, it is sad news, I'd enjoyed his acting

he probably realized that the rest of his career would be plagued with "brokeback joker" remarks and he started throwing pills down the hatch.

i'd say that was the best plan.

he was pretty, i wonder how this'll affect his rentals, as soon as i hear about his death from a customer i thought about his The Order; but i was affected by river phoenix's death much more, does anyone remember him anymore?

it's sad to think mr. ledger will probably go the same way.

I cannot believe the amount of people who have felt the need to post his death on MSN and facebook. I guess he had impact on people, but no body has mentioned Brad Renfro's death

Because Brad Renfro was a nobody, Heath Ledger starred in one of the most talked about movies in the last 30 years.

that's a shame, I liked some of his movies and as far as I can tell from the trailer, he will be great as joker.

And yes I remember River Phoenix very well. He and Joaquim are one of my favourites.
