Wow, this is crazy.I would have never seen this coming.
yikes... i was already looking forward to a batman sequel with him, and i haven't even seen the first one.
wow, i didn't realize he was younger than me. even though i never really cared for many of his movies, i did respect him as an actor.
I just heard the news myself and WOW! Unbelievable! You always wonder what drives a person to that extent. Here's a good looking guy, fairly successful actor, has a daughter, etc. and he's is in what will be one of this summers blockbusters, then he goes and does this, what a shame!
If you think about it, it's just plain weird how life imitates art, do you remember what his character did in "MONSTER'S BALL"
God have mercy on his soul.
I am grieved by this. I pray that his soul will find peice and that the studios shall not delay release of the film.
If I'm allowed by my local theater to wear my batsuit, I shall wear the black band on my arm in honor of him.
Wow!. He was a talented actor. So young too.
I cant believe it, that is terrible news, I haven't seen many of his films but was so looking forward to The Dark Knight, a terrible loss for the movie industry, and my thought and prayers are with his friends and family
I mourn the loss. Not many actors were as profound to me as Heath Ledger, especially after films like the Patriot and a Knight's Tale. Rest in peace.
i initially thought this was a joke, but after reading the news article i was speechless. i wonder if there was any foul play involved. he will be missed.
This is a real shame. As stated above, he will be in one of the biggest movies of the summer, and this happens. Very sad. I also hope the studio goes ahead and releases The Dark Knight in honor of Heath.
God be with you Heath.
I just read it myself...damm shame. Cris Nolan said Heath did a great Joker...real shame if they had more Joker appearances in the upcoming Dark Knight movies. He was like Bat's biggest and long time nemesis.
Rest in Peace Heath.

This is one of the reasons why I don't watch the news sometimes...very depressing. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
Ive just spoken to his family as soon as i found out this wasnt a joke, ive known them through a friend who went to school with him.
Ive passed along the thread information here so they may look at it when the grief isnt too near. They are really distraught atm and now have a lot to do but ive let them know that our heartfelt sympathies and regards go to them in this time.
For clarification, Heath hasnt been sleeping well the last month or two due to personal reasons, to which reason the tablets were there.. they dont believe that is was deliberate at all, and neither do i to clarify that.
On a side topic though, The Dark Knight looks to be realeased on schedule if they can help it, with a 'In Memory of/Dedicated to Heath Ledger" in the movie credits.
Wow, poor guy.
My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
i just heard about it too. man this sucks. Apparently the apt they found him in was owned by Mary Kate Olsen (even though he was living there) according to the New York Times.
Sad to hear this. Skilled actor, something that's very rare in this day and age. Where all actors/actresses are cast on looks rather than knowing acting 101.
I saw the news of this on our Garrison's forums, and I initially thought it was a "gotcha thread." But then I checked CNN.com, and I could not believe my eyes ... it was true. Very shocking.
Such a needless death.. Can't imagine the greif his family and the loss for his little girl, must be going through...Sad, very sad.... God rest his soul..
I'm not a big fan ...But i respect his skillz.
Not a fan at all, but it's unfortunate to hear.
Just read it from yahoo.com and thought it was a joke, i was so shocked and sad, he was so young... knew him from the patriot... RIP Heath
