    Tq, for posting. I just about to do the same. What can I said. I am sad beyond word. Forever and ever I will remember Health Ledger as Ennis Del Mar. I can still remember the kiss he do with Jack Twist , the romance and sad last scene of Brokeback. The haunting song "He was a friend of mine"(now more meaningful and emotional ). His masculine acting as a gay cowboy somehow make me feel that being gay has nothing to do with being femine or a sissy. What a waste of a talent death at 28. I remember planning a trip to Australia just to see the country where Health Ledger came from.
    May he rest in peace .

    Pills strewn about, apparently. I'm sure there will be lots of reaction in Hollywood.
    Here's a clip for the new Batman flick coming in a few months, with Ledger as the new Joker:

    Another sad victim of the hollywood lifestyle. Truly unfortunate that such a talented actor and from other accounts a generaly good human has his life cut tragically short. I, for one, will miss the things he could have/would have done both in films and life. icon_cry.gif

    NEW YORK - Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday at a downtown Manhattan residence, and police said drugs may have been a factor. He was 28.

    NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Ledger had an appointment for a massage at the Manhattan apartment believed to be his home. The housekeeper who went to let him know the masseuse had arrived found him dead at 3:26 p.m.

    A large crowd of paparazzi and gawkers began gathering Tuesday evening outside the building on an upscale block in SoHo, where several police officers guarded the door.

    The Australian-born actor was nominated for an Oscar for "Brokeback Mountain," where he met Michelle Williams in 2005. The two had lived in Brooklyn and had a daughter, Matilda, until they split up last year.

    He most recently appeared in "I'm Not There," in which he played one of the many incarnations of Bob Dylan ƒƒ‚‚ as did Cate Blanchett, whose performance in that film earned an Oscar nomination Tuesday for best supporting actress.

    Ledger was to appear as the Joker this year in "The Dark Night," a sequel to 2005's "Batman Begins." He's had starring roles in "A Knight's Tale" and "The Patriot," and played the suicidal son of Billy Bob Thornton in "Monster's Ball."

    Ledger grew up in Perth, and began doing amateur theater at age 10. At 16, he moved to Sydney to pursue an acting career, quickly landing TV movie roles and guest spots on Australian television.

    After several independent films and a starring role in the short-lived Fox TV series "Roar," Ledger moved to Los Angeles and costarred in "10 Things I Hate About You," a teen comedy reworking of "The Taming of the Shrew."

    Offers for other teen flicks came his way, but Ledger turned them down, preferring to remain idle than sign on for projects he didn't like.

    "It wasn't a hard decision for me," Ledger told the Associated Press in 2001. "It was hard for everyone else around me to understand. Agents were like, 'You're crazy,' my parents were like, 'Come on, you have to eat.'"
