    Actor Heath Ledger 28 Found Dead in NYC

    Actor Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday at a downtown Manhattan apartment, and police said drugs may have been a factor. The Australian-born actor was 28.

    Heath’s Movies included The Patriot (2000), A Knight's Tale (2001), Monster's Ball (2001), and Brokeback Mountain (2005).
    There's The Dark Knight (2008) where he plays The Joker......

    WHAT??

    Is that for real?! If so, it's very sad...

    He seemed like such a sweet guy.

    Ok, I just checked : it's true.

    I still can't believe this. How tragic.

    Ledger had an appointment for a massage at a residence in the tony SoHo neighborhood, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. A housekeeper who went to let him know the massage therapist had arrived found him dead at 3:26 p.m.

    I just saw this on the news. I didn't realize he was so young as he's been around in major films for a number of years. His film, A Knight's Tale, is one of my favorite popcorn movies and I have been looking forward to his interpretation of the Joker in the next Batman movie. What a sad end for such a talented young actor.

    I know, I was surprised too by his age. I thought he was around 33-34.

    It seems he had problems with drugs for a while now and may have been battling depression.

    Not so long ago, Owen Wilson almost died too in similar conditions.

    This is the proof that being rich and successful doesn't garantee happiness...

    An extract from an interview he gave the The New York Times two months ago :

    "I stressed out a little too much,” Mr. Ledger said.

    He tends to do that. He is here in London filming the latest episode of the “Batman”franchise, “The Dark Knight.” (Mr. Bale, as it happens, plays Batman; Mr. Ledger plays the Joker.) It is a physically and mentally draining role — his Joker is a “psychopathic, mass-murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy” he said cheerfully — and, as often happens when he throws himself into a part, he is not sleeping much.

    “Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night,” he said. “I couldn’t stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still going.” One night he took an Ambien, which failed to work. He took a second one and fell into a stupor, only to wake up an hour later, his mind still racing.

    Even as he spoke, Mr. Ledger was hard-pressed to keep still. He got up and poured more coffee. He stepped outside into the courtyard and smoked a cigarette. He shook his hair out from under its hood, put a rubber band around it, took out the rubber band, put on a hat, took off the hat, put the hood back up. He went outside and had another cigarette. Polite and charming, he nonetheless gave off the sense that the last thing he wanted to do was delve deep into himself for public consumption. “It can be a little distressing to have to overintellectualize yourself,” is how he put it, a little apologetically."

    He was an incredibly gifted actor. What a shame.

    He died in one of the Olsen twins room in Soho on Broome street. I am sure the cops want to talk to her about this.

    As of this morning, I do not see anything on the local news

    I've discovered him in the movie "The Order".
    Very talented actor in a movie that's precious in my movie collection.
    Too bad he is gone...I wanted to see more of him, mainly in that type of
    thrillers (I know, lots of critics could not stand that movie like this one http://www.boston.com/movies/display...=movie&id=1874 ...but I did ;p)
    DENISE MILANI REDEFINES HOTNESS! !!

    That is not correct. Check here for what details are known about his death up to this point. Yes, it's kind of a tabloid site but they do constant updates as information is discovered.

    You forgot about one of your all time favorites, Brokeback Mountain.

    Too bad about Heath. He seemed like a good guy.

    Those Olsen twins are nothing but trouble.

    I would love to experience that kind of double trouble...

    It has been alleged that Heath Leder's recent video interview from a couple of months ago shows the actor clearly high on drugs.


    Watch the video and see for yourself ... but be forewarend: this is a sad and disturbing video.

    Very fidgety, indeed! But sometimes people who are physically exhausted and keep on going behave like if they were on drugs, on a high (caffeine, cocaine, worse...). They have tremors, fidgety maneurisms, behave nervously, show inappropriate emotions or disproportionate reactions (smiling too much, laughing for nothing). You are running on endogenous adrenalin, and when you are out, you crash.
    I am not saying he is for sure not on anything, but it is possible he is simply exhausted. Sad.
