Heath Ledger  
Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain, The Dark Knight) has apparently just died of a drug overdose.

I wasn't a fan or anything, but the parts I've seen him in he was great. And it's kinda sudden.

It really reflects the speed of the internet though, I went to his Wiki and it was already edited to reflect this. And I was searching Devart whilst waiting for lj to load, and someone's journal had it too.

RIP I suppose. =( I hope he's really fantastic in 'The Dark Knight', then he'll have had a spectacular finish to his career.

I know, how sad!! :(

I liked Heath Ledger!! (He wasn't one of my favorite actors or anything, but I enjoyed watching him) and he was currently filming something too!! Booooo!

Yeah, same here! =( I own Brokeback Mountain too so...

He was filming The Dark Knight, but that had just been finished...unless he'd started something else? =(

Well if there was that long left till release, they'll probably have to re-cast and redo. =(

So apparently Jonny Depp is replacing Heath in that film now. Though he might not be replacing hi9m for whole things coz they might be able to write it in somehow with the character changing image or something

You know, I saw a movie with a veeery similar title showing at the cinema when I went the other day. o.O Confused me.

Ahh I see. They were friends right? So that's kind of sweet I suppose. =/

I hate how these thing are so sudden

I'm in the same boat as you, not really a fan - but from what I saw he was good :) I checked his imdb page after i found out but it wasn;t mentioned...tough it was mentioned before the start of that film thing with Jonothon Ross

*nods* Yeah, it's how sudden it is that makes you feel all weird...=/

I suppose that';s because Wiki can be edited by anyone (creepy though that someone thought straight away 'omg he's dead?? must edit wiki!'...whereas IMDB is run by staff members.
What wasn't mentioned sorry?

I agree creepy, my thought was My God!! followed by - I wonder what films he's been in

Just ment the death wasn't mentioned on imdb, but the voice link bloke on bbc mentioned it wen he introduced the jonothon ross film thing
