Actor Heath Ledger, made famous in his role as a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain, and starring as the Joker in the future release of Batman: Dark Knight, passed away today from a sleeping pill overdose at the age of 28.
This news is sad. Not too long ago, in considering young actors that I felt had integrity and tremendous potential, Ledger was at the top of my list. I was anxious to see what heights his career might climb. So it goes...
I hope he's found peace.
