I was shocked this evening with the sad news of the death of Heath Ledger. I am saddened because here is a human being who may have taken his own life. My understanding is that he is the father of a young child. Tragic.
I am also saddened by the loss of a legitimate actor who was doing good work. I have been, and continue to be, excited to see him as the Joker the upcoming Batman film. And though I did not see his acclaimed work in Brokeback Mountain, I have enjoyed him in other films. I might be the only person on earth who actually liked "Four Feathers."
I am sorry we won't get to see him develop as an actor. And I am more saddened that his child will never know him.
