a sad time for hollywood

Some very sad news for Hollywood. Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment on Tuesday afternoon after what appears to be an accidental overdose of prescription sleeping pills. He was only 28 years old.

Heath is best known for his role as a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain but also received rave reviews for his roles in films like 10 Things I Hate About You and A Knight’s Tale. He was set to appear in the summer blockbuster of The Dark Knight as Joker – a character, Heath told reporters, kept him up at night.

Heath was discovered by his masseuse, who had arrived for a schedule appointment. When she found Heath unresponsive, she used his cellphone to call Mary-Kate Olsen (reports now claim the actress was dating Heath) and then proceeded to call 911 45 minutes later. He leaves behind his two year old daughter, Matilda, with ex-fiance Michelle Williams.

Truly devastating.
