HEath Ledger as the Joker

Actor Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday of a possible drug overdose in a Lower Manhattan apartment, the New York Police Department said. The Academy Award nominated actor was 28. "Pills were found in the vicinity of the bed," police spokesman Paul Browne told CNN.

"This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet." Police later said the pills "appear to be over the counter" sleeping medication. Ledger was unresponsive when he was found by a housekeeper who had gone to wake him for an appointment with a masseuse in the Soho apartment, Browne said. [CNN]

Did they finish filming the new Batman yet?

He was a great talent -- Ang Lee compared him to Marlon Brando -- and with great talent often comes great misunderstanding and confusion. I hope his family is comforted by the idea that he may have found what he was looking for.

Rest in peace.
