    Mods, since this seems to be a true story, could you change my title to something a little more dignified like "Heath Ledger dies" or "Heath Ledger reported dead." Something. I was looking for confirmation when I typed it. Still very shocking.

    Very, very shocking. I'll be interested in the details. It's terrible news, as he was on the cusp of a very promising career [​IMG]

    From a draconian standpoint, how on Earth do you market TDK now?

    Wow,

    2nd young actor drug related death within, I believe, a week. And this time a kid is left behind.

    Well, hopefully some good can come out of all these deaths and near deaths recently. Although I suppose Ledger's could have been suicide.

    This is terrible. Absolutely terrible.

    It is almost bitter sweet with what seems to be his career changing performance in "The Dark Knight" in a few months.

    I'm watching CNN now. Nothing about drugs mentioned -- but
    will stay tuned for more news.

    Was he playing THE JOKER in the upcoming BATMAN film?

    Is all the principal photography complete?

    Not to sound insensitive, but you couldn't buy better marketing than this.

    I supposed you can go for the "See Heath Ledger's final film performance" marketing angle, but I doubt they will do that. I expect a dedication to him at the start of the closing credits, but it's going to be a very emotional opening night for all who worked on the film.
