sad indeed; Hollywood really has this way of 'immortalizing' these young actors - making them seem invincible and almost surreal, but at the end of the day, they have their afflictions just like the rest of us. Rumor mill says he was found surrounded by pills - money and infamy doesn't equal happiness it seems. He leaves behind a very young daughter, which is tragic as well.

Great actor, he played the most difficult role in Brokeback Mountain I think, and I liked him in the Brothers Grimm far more than Matt Dammon.
We'll see him as the Joker and it'll be sad somehow. I read he played this character with talent.
Rest in peace, man.

Don't trust the press! They are always gonna try to make it sound more sinister than it is.
Now the latest reports are that he had pneumonia. I think it's entirely possible that he was just sick, lost track of his last dose of meds and took too much. Of course this would be more sad, if it were an accident and all. Then that makes me wonder. . . how strong did those pills have to be? I'ts just too sad.
It's a little scary too, he was a year younger than me. I still can't believe we lost another one so young and positive. His death reminds me of Steeve Irwin because it was senseless and Brandon Lee a little because this Joker charicter reminds me of the crow and they were both so startling.
Goddess bless his family and his little daughter. Rest in peace Heath you are now forever young.
