ledger Actor Heath Ledger Found Dead!I was completely stunned and dismayed to learn actor Heath Ledger, who was nominated for an Oscar for his role in Brokeback Mountain and is gaining incredible buzz for his turn as the Joker in the upcoming The Dark Knight, had died in New York City.

Not many details are known right now, but this is a complete shock that will be felt by many. This comes just a week after young actor Brad Renfro was found dead.

Our thoughts are with both Ledger and Renfro’s family, friends and fans. Please be respectful in your comments.

  1. Almost reminds me of the George Reeves murder. (that’s right,I said MURDER. It wasn’t suicide)

  2. Wow. On the Reeves Murder KEL I thought the same thing today.

  3. We all live on…

  4. It was murder (Reeves). Seriously,check it out. :-)

  5. What a tragicly startling and painful loss…
    It is distressing to me personally to hear such a good-hearted, enlightened and talented person departing so early in life. Having left behind a 2 year daughter wondering why hear father won’t becoming home. My sincere condolescents goes out to his true friends and family.

  6. This is sad news.

    While I wasn’t a huge fan of his work (I’d be a hypocrite if I said otherwise), I do have to give Ledger credit for not taking films for the money or the fame. He did have a certain charm and I do feel that his career was about to take off in a very big way.

    The first film that I saw him in was The Patriot with Mel Gibson, and Ledger held his own against Gibson when on the screen- something which is no mean feat. His death is a shame, and I truly feel that The Dark Knight will be a fitting closing to an interesting and all too short career.


  7. Wow heath has deie and all you can talk about is TDK? Do you have any respect for him or anyone for that matter. This is a very sad thing think about his family, he has a little girl. He and his family will definitly be in my prayers . . . so sad

  8. Sad news. Forget TDK he was a young actor with legit talent and I think his role as the joker was going to be his defining role. The movie will benefit and I for one, I am really looking forward to his last role.
