This is a shocking news: Australian actor and Oscar-nominee Heath Ledger, who made several great performances in Brokeback Mountain, Monster Ball -aswell as other very good performances in blockbusters like The Patriot and A Knight's Tale- was found naked and dead in an apartment; authorities suspect a drug overdose as the case.
He was 28.
This is a disappointing story for me, becaue I'm really looking forward to seeing Batman: Dark Knight this year to see if Ledger could topple Jack Nicholson's performance as The Joker. I thought this young man had a very promising career. Unfortunately it won't be so.
Rest in Peace.
PS: Hmm, it seems my blog is becoming something of an obituary. I'll try to make my next entry more cheerful, I promise.
[UPDATE/ January 24th] For those of you who think discussing about Ledger's deaths should be reserved to Pink Press websites, I strongely urge you to read an excellent article by Loren Coleman, who managed to find a thin but powerful fortean thread in Ledger's sad demise.
