RIP Heath Ledger

ShowHype: hype it up!
Being a movie blog, I feel that I should post on this. For those of you who don't know, Actor Heath Ledger was found dead in his New York apartment today. The 28 year old actor is known especially for his role in the smash hit Brokeback Mountain. He is set to star as the Joker in the New Batman movie to be released later this year.

The details behind his death have not been released yet. It is not known whether drugs or other influences were involved.

It is quite a tragedy for such a young and successful actor to have his life ended. I don't know if there was foul play or anything else involved, but it is extremely sad. It does show that no matter how successful or popular you are, there are things you can't prevent. It's unfortunate that this had to be one of them.

RIP Heath Ledger.

It makes me sad to know a little girl will grow up without her daddy.

I was shocked when I found out, and it is quite sad that she won't have a father to grow up with.

He had more to give to the world.

He was a very talented actor who was going from strength to strength with his career. It is truly sad that he didn't have more time with his daughter and wife and that all was taken so abruptly from him.

R.I.P. Heath Ledger
