I was really surprised to hear that Heath Ledger was dead. I kinda thought it was one of those spoof links someone made to get people talking about fake news, but he really is dead. He has done some good roles and a few great ones too, especially his role as The Joker in the new sequel to The Batman, Dark Knight. It sad to see someone with get acting potential going out like that.
I'm really optimistic about him being in The Dark Knight and how his role as the Joker would really define him as being one of the most versatile actors of today. There was so much potential and I personally believe being the Joker would've led him to make some really great films. It's such a tragic loss for family, friends and fans, as well as the entertainment world.
This is a really sad day. Heath Ledger was an amazing actor. One of the bests actors in our generation. It's a shame he had to go. His up coming role as Joker in The Dark Knight was going to be one of his greatest roles. This role is going to send shock waves through Hollywood, proving he had the chops to be one of the best. I send my condolences to his family and friends.
