R.I.P. Heath Ledger

Wow ... so young. So much talent. Gone. Can't believe it.

The Dark Knight will be out. He just finished filming he scenes as "The Joker" but whatever "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" was will probably not see the light of day with his face as whatever he was going to play.

"Heath Ledger was found dead at 3:26 pm this afternoon," a police spokesperson said, saying he was found in an apartment in the posh district of Soho. "We don't know the cause of the death.""

Sounds like the cause of death was overdose on sleeping pills (unintentionally) which lead to his cardiac arrest (heart attack). Darn ... Hope it wasn't suicide. I really liked him (as an actor). That's a lot of talent wasted there. I really thought his career was about to sky rocket with "Dark Knight".

On a lighter note ...

By the way. Fantastic film. Anyone who doesn't see that is blind to a great piece of work.
