All I can say is dang. I haven't really seen many of his movies, but it just strikes me as how random this is. He was only 28.

Yeah I just saw this on digg, I couldn't believe it. I haven't seen many of his movies either but I know he's in the Dark Knight.

That just sucks to here. My friend just texted me and told me. Very sad to see a talented actor go especially with a daughter never getting to know her dad now.

What the hell? ****, this is so unexpected.

And damn, before the Dark Knight was released as well.

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. What the hell?

I'm not a fan of him by any means, but this is sad for his wife and daughter. Should have stayed away from those pills though.

I just heard on Fox that that was a false report, and that it wasn't owned by mary-kate olsen. I also heard that cops apparently said that the death was accidental. Though that reports sounding iffy too.

Wow, this is actually the first time I'm shocked by a celebrity death. Extremely unexpected.

It'll definitely be weird watching The Dark Knight when it premieres...

I was at rehearsal when my friend's father texted her to let her know.

All it said was: "Heath Ledger is dead."

We were in disbelief, but we're all actors and the Director actually insisted that she called him to get details. I'm still in shock.

It's such a surprise... and just so sad...

This sucks...
He was young and with a promising career. Can't believe he's dead.. I think I'm still shocked by it...

Doesn't change my life at all. I mean, yeah that sucks, he was a good actor...but I just think about all the other people out there that die that don't necessarily affect my life...and he falls in that category.

But anyways, rest in peace mayn. You kicked ass in Brokeback.

that sucks. he was rising up in fame and then this. :(

maybe the role took a big toll on him. i heard he locked himself in a hotel room for a month to prepare for the Joker, and he had trouble sleeping afterwards.

they prolly won't reshoot any scenes as most of the filming is prolly done already.

Batman was finished, he got like 2 hours of sleep because his role as the Joker disturbed him so much.

Doesn't affect me but much respect.

And that sucks about the kid

What happened exactly?

"WTF" comes to mind simply because this is the most random death I've seen in years. I was starting to love Ledger for being the Joker and he was getting major attention, too - the new Batman movie would have shot him across the world. And out of nowhere, I see Heath Ledger is Dead on Digg. What the ****?

I think The Dark Knight is in post-production now, so it should turn out okay, perhaps with a dedication to Ledger. It's going to send up chills up my spine everytime I see the Joker on screen now - the death has only multiplied the new Joker's scariness.

Just how demonic the Joker is portrayed he couldn't shake the feeling of how demonic the role was and he had to take 2 ambian(sp?) to get 1 hour of sleep because he couldn't shake the feeling

As hard as I try not to, I can't believe that as anything other than a subliminal publicity statement. Because if that's true, The Dark Knight is going to be way cooler than I had thought.

People think its drug overdose. Because he was found naked face down with sleeping pills around him.

Anyway I think they already finished filming the dark knight. So we don't have another River Pheonix happening

That story was later proclaimed as incorrect, from what I heard.

He was found in his bed lying normally with a bottle of pills on his night stand next to him.

I still think something is not right... I mean, I never saw anything saying that he had any type of drug problems. Can't believe it was an accidental overdose, that just sucks!

He didn't have a "drug problem" he's just been taking sleeping pills for quite a while because he can't sleep without them.

Which is why they were saying it sounds like an accidental overdose.

Oftentimes, sleeping pill addiction or the inability to sleep without them is considered a drug problem :/

I'm not going to speculate on it though. RIP

I dunno I just watched the live broadcast that was one when I got home at 3:40 yesterday so I didn't bother digging any deeper.
