Heath Ledger

It's a shock around the newsphere that actor Heath Ledger was found dead today.

His star seemed to be taking off with recent roles, and after Brokeback Mountain a couple years ago, he was drawing attention for his take on The Joker in this years upcoming The Dark Knight. I'll be the first to say I wasn't thrilled when they announced him to play the Joker, but after seeing the trailer it looks like he knocked it out of the park. Going to be a little odd watching the movie after this.

One Yahoo article seems to indicate he'd had major trouble sleeping with some of his recent roles - he couldn't stop thinking he told a newspaper interview. He was reportedly found today in a Manhattan apartment, face down at the foot of his bed and there were prescription sleeping pills close. It didn't appear to be suicide though.

He was just 28.
