    Actor Heath Ledger Is Found Dead
    By Sewell Chan

    The actor Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in an apartment building at 421 Broome Street in SoHo, according to the New York City police. Mr. Ledger was 28.
    At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A in the building for an appointment with Mr. Ledger, the police said. The masseuse was let in to the home by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Mr. Ledger’s bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Mr. Ledger unconscious. They shook him, but he did not respond. They immediately called the authorities. The police said they did not suspect foul play and said they found pills near body.
    Mr. Ledger, a native of Perth, Australia, won acclaim for his role as a co-star in “Brokeback Mountain”, a 2005 film. The film, based on a short story by Annie Proulx about two cowboys who fall in love, won critical acclaim. Reviewing the film in The New York Times, the critic Stephen Holden wrote, “Mr. Ledger magically and mysteriously disappears beneath the skin of his lean, sinewy character. It is a great screen performance, as good as the best of Marlon Brando and Sean Penn.”
    Mr. Ledger met the actress Michelle Williams while filming ‘’Brokeback Mountain.” The two actors fell into a very public romance. They had a daughter, Matilda Rose, who was born on Oct. 28, 2005. They moved to Brooklyn, but then separated last year.
    Calls by The New York Times to Mara Buxbaum, a publicist for Mr. Ledger, and Steve Alexander, the actor’s agent, were not immediately returned this afternoon.

    He was Mr. "Ah just cayn't quitchoo...". At least I think he was. Or maybe it was the other one who said that.... never saw the movie myself....

    EDIT: He's also playing the Joker in this summer's Batman movie... so hopefully they have finished up post production on that one...

    Suicide?
    WTF is wrong with these losers! They have everything going for them and they off themselves! Dumbazz! I swear you have to be a little to a lot fu-ked up in the head to be an entertainer. Oh, the drama!

    Sorry, but I went to a party for Make-a-Wish kids this weekend and I met some really courageous kids and their parents who fight to live while gifted, healthy (maybe not) rich people throw it all away. I don't get it. I must not have enough "creativity".

    Don't be so harsh on the guy. Suicide is usually the result of mental illness.

    Gee, that's some observation. Did you read that in a book, or did some expert tell you that? I think what people like me, and Wistah if he doesn't mind me inserting his name here, are trying to say, is that it's common sense that a person is mentally fukced up to kill themselves. Mentally fukced up, ahem, mental illness, is the professional (appologist) term for being fukcing stupid. I feel bad for his family, and his daughter.

    RIP Heath.

    Wow, talk about ignorant. You sound like an old man with your views. It's pretty well documented that there are often physical or chemical differences between the severely depressed and people who are not. Do you believe in Alzheimer's or is that apologist-speak too.

    Unreal... bravo, "sensitive, moderate" righty...

    anyhow, reports are inconclusive right now regarding suicide or not... i suppose we'll see in the coming days, if we continue to care... i hope the story goes away until an autopsy is conducted... otherwise, it's more celeb news distortion by the CORPORATE media, taking away from the real stories they seldom get to the bottom of...

    The topic of suicide is a touchy one obviously... I'd have to agree with Patters, mostly, that a majority of these people have some sort of mental problem. A guy a grew up with, his father was an upstanding, responsible, ex-military guy, whom I respected greatly. One day, he just up and hung himself in his garage. Had to be a mental illness. Some are probably just weak people, but I assume they regret it immediately (like when they have time to reflect as they fly off the bridge they lept from). Some jackasses do it as a douchey ploy for attention, but those are usually unsuccessful and planned that way.

    This is, of course, only off of personal experience, and not from any real study.

    They said he had pneumonia??? They found 2 bottles of sleeping pills 1 RX and 1 over the counter. He had a hard time sleeping when making a film. Sounds like a bad combination of things at the wrong time. He very possibly might have choked in his sleep ... just a guess. Prayers for him and his family at this difficult time.

    I really don't know the fella... never followed him or his career.

    How he passed isn't really known, but, if it is suicide... it could be caused by many things.

    It might have been something else though.

    You don't know.

    I don't know either.

    If it was suicide... depression and/or anxiety is a terrible symptom to overcome.

    Very sad. I liked him "The Patriot", as a son of Mel Gibson character, Benjamin Martin. Very sorry to hear about this.
