Heath Ledger is dead...

Post by Kalifa » 23 Jan 2008, 14:28

suspected overdose of sleeping pills maybe?

his final movie will be the upcoming batman sequel, and he plays joker, should be good

Aye, it's sad.

I'll be interested to see what happened; it'll be particularly crappy if he decided to OD on pills.

Reminds me of the time I first heard Phil Hartman was dead; that was a sad story.

first thing I thought was

"Well Gareth's (friend of mine) story about punching him in the face isn't going to get the laughs it used to"

Terrible thing.

Good.

@Mitra:
Aye. They used to shut Heath in his locker at school.

It was a serious tragedy.

Also, I pronounce your name closer to "bitter".

I was at work reading interviews about he used to say how messed up filming The Dark Knight was on him.

Sad loss :(

Yeah, he looks fucking good in the Batman trailers, it's pretty disheartening to see him die so young.

Still haven't seen Brokeback, although I want to.

Whats that "the black knight" movie?

I give 'til tomorrow before stupid funny videos featuring Heath ala 300 start circulating youtube.

I implore everyone to start one.
Having an abundance of platonic relationships reminiscent of my man, Mike Plato.

All that's left is a beautiful hour
And it's ours, ours.
