Yup, he was found surrounded by pills. His last film will actually be the upcoming Batman movie.

He was probably dealing with Brokeback demons.

I've heard the name but never cared who he was. Googling revealed he was one of those Brokeback guys.

Great actor, I really enjoyed his movies and the kids love "A Knights Tale". Rumor had it he was going to star in a new Mad Max movie playing Max's son. Guess thats not gonna happen. I never realized how young he was, I thought he was maybe mid 30's right now. Damn shame!.

I'd have thought Britney Spears would go before him. +1 I think A Knight's Tale is his best movie. Being a Hollywood starlet just isn'ta charmed life.

Yeah, he wasn't aging too well... I guess the pills were taking their toll. Such a waste -- gets the world at his feet and instead of thriving, ruins his life and leaves his kid w/o a father.

A friend of mine died similarly and this really brings up bad memories.

Britney needs to take notice -- the AP's already drawn up her obit.

Now that would really be a shame to let the obit go to waste.

It seems like every Americanized Australian has a problem with substance abuse...

Heath Ledger...drugs.
Mel Gibson...alcohol.
Keith Urban...alcohol and cocaine.
Nicole Kidman...Botox.

+1. I can't say I have seen everything he has done, but the stuff I have seen him in was entertaining.
I have not seen Broke Back mountain, but it was just a movie. So no big deal.
I didn't realize he was that young either.
Pretty sad.:(

Brokeback mountain was not his best work. It was an awful movie with not much in the way of a story line. I loved the Patriot with him and Mel Gibson. Thing that sucks is that whenever they mention him on the news they keep talking about Brokeback Mountain and thats really gay.

Brokeback Mountain was a turning point in his career. Much like Daniel Day-Lewis' transformation in There will be Blood, but to a lesser extent, Heath Ledger really made you believe he had been out in the hard country his whole life. Jake Gyllenhaal didn't hold a candle to Heath's performance.

There may not have been much of a story-line, but the cinematography was a spectacle.

Respect for a dead junkie? Who by the way, had the whole world by the nuts, I don't think so. Ah the poor millionaire actor, so misunderstood. :cookoo:

The family believes it was an accidental death... also his autopsy is inconclusive (2 different links)

A 19 year old kid getting killed in Iraq is a tragedy, a spoiled punk millionaire actor ODing in a $23,000 a month apartment in NYC is not.

No offense RightTurn, BTW I love that ankle.

Just to make sure I'm perfectly clear --

My calling out THIS:


A 19 year old kid getting killed in Iraq is a tragedy, a spoiled punk millionaire actor ODing in a $23,000 a month apartment in NYC is not.

was in no way intended to minimize the sacrifice of any of our troops.

I should have quoted it like THIS:


...a spoiled punk millionaire actor ODing in a $23,000 a month apartment in NYC is not. (a tragedy)

to be as accurate as possible.

And while the media coverage of this event has been blown way out of proportion -- especially when compared to the lives and stories of our fallen and injured troops -- I don't see why there's a need to be a smartaleck w/regard to someone who died.
