The Joker, Heath Ledger, Is Dead, Drug OD.

I was pretty suprised to find on Digg headlines on Heath Ledger is dead, thinking it was a rather sick joke. You know how some stuff written on blogs can't really hold water. However, the BBC news site was carrying the same story and it's true, the man who is starring in the upcoming Batman sequel as the Joker, is now dead from an apparent drug overdose.

I've not watched Brokeback Mountain, but I've watched him in The Patriot, Monster Ball, and last, but not least, one of my favourite movies, A Knight's Tale. He's a pretty good actor, IMHO.

It's pretty sad reading about this, but it does shows how tragic it can be whenever drug abuse intertwines with life. Stay away from drugs, kids, else they will definitely have the last laugh.

Here's the link to the BBC news report:
