Heath Ledger Found Dead


Actor Heath Ledger was found dead in his SoHo apartment today. The police found pills near the body, and don't believe foul play was involved.

What a bummer. He started off in crappy movies, but he took a lot of risks as an actor, and I was looking forward to seeing him in the new Batman movie this summer.

He was 28.

This is a damn shame. Dark Knight is going to be his biggest hit to date, and he won't be around to enjoy it. Only 28? Good God.

I posted about it on my blog also. So sad - so young - and a little daughter left behind.

I can't believe that someone named for a character in "Wuthering Heights" would meet an unhappy ending...

Yeah dude, I saw that 7 minute Dark Knight trailer on IMAX at Christmas and it looked AWESOME. Incidentally, he lives in my neighbourhood and the media storm last night was insane. I went out for a soda and there were news crews all over the damn place. Poor guy. I kinda liked him. Cue the "I guess he could quit you after all" jokes.
