Actor Heath Ledger found dead

OK, THIS is weird.

NEW YORK -- Oscar-nominated actor Heath Ledger has been found dead at a downtown Manhattan residence, police said Tuesday, in what might be a drug-related death.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Ledger had an appointment for a massage at the SoHo apartment that is believed to be his home. A housekeeper went to let Ledger know the masseuse was there, and found him dead at 3:26 p.m, Browne said.

Ledger was found with a bottle of pills next to him, according to an NYPD spokesman.

What a horrible loss...

(Hat-tip to Mike B. for the heads-up.)

This is just a terribly sad and awful thing- he seemed a really nice guy and I enjoyed all his movies (cept Brokeback- didn't watch it). He will be missed and we should all show some respect to his family and friends.

Wow. Man, that's a surprise. He truly was a great talent, almost seemed like one of those Harrison Ford type of actors who would be around a long time.

From what I've seen of the next Batman movie, his performance as Joker will be quite memorable...
