Heath Ledger is Dead!?

Article By Noddegamra. Filed under: Miscellaneous

Heath Ledger (The Joker) 28 died January 22nd 2008It’s true, I only just found out myself!

According to many sources such as The New York Times, 28 year old actor Heath Ledger died today of suspected suicide or overdose.

“Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in an apartment in Manhattan inhabited by the actress Mary-Kate Olsen, according to the New York City police. Signs pointed to a suicide or an accidental overdose, police sources said.”

Heath Ledger was set to appear as The Joker in the upcoming Batman movie “The Dark Knight“. As far as I know, the film is (or almost is) 100% complete, currently undergoing the stage of post production.

Whilst nothing has been confirmed yet, I imagine Warner Bros/Time Warner will continue to show the film, possibly dedicating the movie to the actor in this tragic event.

  1. According to the radio this morning, he had finished filming.

    As he didn’t leave a note and the circumstances don’t appear to be suicide, police are currently investigating it as an accidental overdose.

    He leaves behind his wife Michelle Williams and their two year old daughter Matilda.

  3. Fuck! I liked the dude too… Especially in 10 things I hate about you… (Does that make me gay?? I dunno)

    Celebrities and drugs eh? Has no-one seen the connection yet? It bugs me that lives (the families) get ruined because of stardom.

    RIP Heath Ledger.

  4. Oh I just realised he wasn’t married to Michelle Williams.

  5. News says He may have overdosed on prescription sleeping and anti-anxiety pills.

  6. Yeah, it’s a sad deal all around because he was so young, just 28. Plus he was an amazing talent & a very nice, down-to-earth guy. For now he’ll be remembered for a few movies but after the release of The Dark Knight people will always think of him as The Joker. Rest In Peace.
