Too bad. He probably stumbled across 'A Knight's Tale' on AMC or something.

Edit - I didn't know he had a kid. Apparently he had a 2 year old daughter. I'll hold my tongue on that one.

According to the New York Times, Ledger was found naked and unconscious with pills strewn all around him in an apartment owned by actress Mary-Kate Olsen.
This would make Hunter Thompson proud.

Way too soon...

I thought he was a talented actor, and if nothing else, the media presented him as a loving, caring, and good father.

It's insane being 3 years younger than him, and seeing his life end so early.

*On a side note, someone in the office I work in just said "ledger"... but they were referring to accounting.*

wow, my film studies teacher had mentioned him in class today too just around the time they found him(3:30), that's weird.

RIP, he was a talented actor.

His first TV role was as a cyclist. Kind of cool.

I am looking forward to seeing him as the Joker.

Classic Hollywood ending to his life though. That sucks.

Rumor is that the role of Joker disturbed him, he couldn't sleep, and has been taking Ambien.

As we know, various people have said that Ambien as really made their life worse, but since that was just anecdotal, it's still on the market.

Still sad :(

He went to the same university as Partsy and me. Has a well regarded performing arts course. He was a favourite Perth son so of course they're all devastated over there.
As for ambien- I love it but it can f*ck you up good and proper if you're not careful.

I took Halcion for my LASIK procedure and swear to the lord that I had a mild, but very real psychotic episode. Seriously scared the sh1t out of me and that was on only two doses 14 hours apart.

btw, I really liked Ledger's acting (and I never saw Brokeback). I was talking about Lords of Dogtown, and I thought his portrayal of Skip Engblom was amazing.
