    Yeah, I was just about to post this. It's a shame, I loved him in Knights Tale and Brothers Grimm.

    I just heard this also. The first movie I saw him in was Monster's Ball.

    I look fotward to his portrayal of the Joker in Batman: The Dark Knight, his final film.

    He was 28 years old.

    The saddest part is he is the father of a two-year old daughter.

    Ouch... That's really sad. He was a very good actor... Rest in peace, Heath.

    I just read that on the net also. He was a really good actor, just shows how bad a thing drugs are and what they take from this world. At least he still finished working on the Dark Knight. R.I.P.

    omg.... that sucks. I mean, he wasn't my favorite actor, but he's an Aussie. And wow, that is so sad. Terrible news. My condolances to the Family and his little girl.

    I was so f***ing p***ed! I'm not even going to lie. I was so looking forward to seeing interviews with him talking about the role as the Joker in Batman. I was so hoping that there could be some more films from him...

    Absolutely awful. It's such a tragic loss and such a waste of talent. I'm really going to miss seeing him, I loved a lot of his movies and was so excited about the new Batman movie - it's become very bitter-sweet now.

    RIP Heath, so sad to see you go.

    I think it's horrible that his family had to come out and make a statement on the same day they find out that their son is dead. I know it has to be done but I admire their strength.
