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 Australia, won acclaim for his role as a co-star in “Brokeback Mountain”, a 2005 film. The film, based on a novel by Larry McMurtry 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.”

Heath Ledger Found Dead
in a Manhattan apartment, per all the major news sites.
Ya kiddin!?!? How did he die???
as a brooklyn resident, i would see him now and then on the street incognito, but never up to anything shady. i know it sounds petty, but what will they do about the batman sequel now? it's in post production.
I hope that Batman movie is in the can and ready to go.
just saw that Holy shit!
new york times is reporting
LOL. guess the joker isnt coming back in the 3rd new batman
Hope they don't have to do re-shoots and give him a li'l memorial thingy at the beginning, or end.
I blame Brokeback.
Hope they finished filming the new Batman movie.
wow good prediction
Yeah Fox broke the news also, that's some fucked up shit. Now ESD is going to have to find somebody else's name to drop, when he talks about how good his Brooklyn neighborhood is.
So, who had him in the death pool?
Accidental OD or suicide I wonder?
Holy shit. And I actually respected him as an actor.
First Sam the Butcher, Suzanne Plechette, Brad Renfro, now Heath Ledger.
I know they come in threes but holy shit was that a jump. Was TDK done filming?
I guess God needed a gay cowboy.....
