VILLAINOUS: Ledger plays Batman nemesis the Joker in “The Dark Knight.” . “Heath has given an amazing performance in the role, it’s really extraordinary,” director Christopher Nolan says.

This is terrible. I only just found out now, and...wow, I'm shocked.

Unfortunately you know when it says they were "found in their apartment" that there was usually something dark in their life leading to this, whether it was drugs, depression...I guess we'll find out.

It's horrible that his young daughter will never really know him; he was quite a talented actor.

So very sad. I came down to check my email and there was a Variety Breaking News update that had "Heath Ledger dead" as the title--what a shock.

I've always really enjoyed his work. He will be missed.

NEW YORK (CNN) --

Actor Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday of a possible drug overdose in a Lower Manhattan apartment, the New York Police Department said.

The Academy Award nominated actor was 28.

"Pills were found in the vicinity of the bed," police spokesman Paul Browne told CNN.

"This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet."

The pills appeared to be over-the-counter sleeping medication, said police spokeswoman Barbara Chen.

Ledger was unresponsive when he was found by a housekeeper who had gone to wake him for an appointment with a masseuse in the Soho apartment, Browne said.

The apartment is owned by the actress Mary-Kate Olsen, The New York Times reported.

Ledger was declared dead at about 3:30 p.m., Browne said.

In 2005, the actor played Ennis Del Mar in "Brokeback Mountain," about two cowboys who had a secret relationship.

The role earned him the Oscar nomination.

Ledger was born in Perth, Australia. He has a young daughter with actress Michelle Williams, his co-star in "Brokeback Mountain."

"He was just so respected in the industry," said Kim Serafin, senior editor of In Touch Weekly. "It's just horribly tragic. He was just a fine actor and a good person, so this is horribly sad and very unexpected."

The NYPD confirmed that he was NOT in Mary Kate Olsen's apartment. So at least she'll be able to continue living there.

...yawn

Dude, not cool. :angry: Heath Ledger was a great actor, and it's really sad that he died so suddenly. I've loved him since I saw A Knight's Tale, I swear my heart skipped a beat when I saw the news on my computer. He had a lot of potential left, and now his daughter will have to grow up without ever knowing her dad. It's really sad news to some people on this board.

I couldn't agree more. I'm not a fan, but it's still saddening to know an actor of his talent died at such a young age. It's heartbreaking to think his little girl will never see her daddy again.

I was STUNNED when I showed up to the office after class and someone told me this. What the hell?! I never had any idea he had a drug issue. Gosh, drugs ruin so many lives. His poor little kiddie. Isn't she like two years old?

I'll always remember when 10 Things I Hate About You came out when I was like 13 and he serenaded Julia Stiles. I was always so jealous haha. He's really done some amazing work after getting out of the "teen idol" group, as well. I am so gutted.

RIP, my dream serenador. :(

This shocked the hell out of me, especially coming so close to the death of Brad Renfro. And just as shocking as when River Phoenix died.

He was a great talent who was going to go a very long way. He'll be missed.

The link 59LesPaul posted said they were sleeping pills. You kinda have to assume it wasn't an accident.

Actually...it could have been an accidental overdose. That happens a lot with sleeping pills...he might have taken more than he could handle, or mixed it with something else...but then again, it might have been a suicide. They didn't mention a note or anything...

I think it just might have been accidental. The man had a massage scheduled...also, they said they found him naked. If I was going to commit suicide, I would make sure I wasn't naked...but that's just me.

I expected to find Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan with this headline, not Heath Ledger. I really liked him...he was only a year older than I am...that freaks me out a little. I'm sad his daughter won't know him.

This so sad and such a shock from him. I found out this morning and they think it was an overdose because he was very depressed about being a celebrity.

He used to host this kids show we watched as little kids, so its a real shame. He was so young himself.

R.I.P mate

I was driving home from work when I heard the news. This is very shocking and sad. Heath was a great talent and was excellent in "Brokeback Mountain". May he R.I.P.
