Heath Ledger

I couldn't sleep last night. I read about what happened to Heath Ledger. This world effing sucks. I don't believe that he'd kill himself. I'll wait until what the autopsy reports say. I just don't think the role of the Joker would let that get to him. Yes, it was a dark role and he inhabited it like any dedicated actor would. Yes, he lived alone in a hotel room for a month to research the role and suffered insomnia as a result, but it was a role and nothing more. He put on the mask and went to work then washed it off when he went home. He is an actor. This is his job.

He had a massage appointment. He was going to act in a Terry Giliam film next. He had a two year old daughter. This just doesn't make any sense. This world rarely does.

You and Brad Renfro will be missed. You're the type of talent I hope to work with someday whether you're playing a character that I created or I'm just getting your coffee. Both of these would have been an honor.
