Heath Ledger Dead at Age 28

Police are still investigating, but the Academy Award Nominee was found in an apartment today, dead.

He recently finished filming the latest Batman movie, ‘The Dark Knight’ where he played The Joker. No word on how this affects the film, if at all. Ledger leaves behind a wife and 2-year-old daughter.

    Shocked
    You expect to hear that Britney Spears or Lindsey Lohan were found dead with all the news of their time in rehab and other craziness. I never would have expected this. It just goes to show you that no one is immune to death. And the initial reports that drugs may have been involved (accidental overdoes) makes even more sad.

    And I think he had broken up with his girlfriend (and mother of his daughter). They weren’t married.

      I actually think that there’s less of a chance that this would happen to people who are watched 24/7 by paparazzi… they have cell phones, someone would call an ambulance, and then take pictures of it.

    This is sad
    He was just starting to really take off. His performance as The Joker in Dark Knight really looks promising to me, and if what I saw in the trailer carries through, I expect him to be my favorite one of them all. Just really very sad.

    A tragic loss
    This is really sad. Heath had so much potential and his career probably would have reached new heights after his role as The Joker. *sigh* A quick note as well, he was not married, Michelle Williams was simply his girlfriend who had left him recently.
