    I liked The Patriot, tho' many critics thought it was average. I'd put it in my top 30 because it demonstrated what a war in your backyard might look and feel like. Heath only had a supporting role there, but I thought that was his best film overall. I never did see the cowboy movie, and never will, but I really did like the Patriot.

    What a tragedy.

    Prescription medication? So many talented & creative people seem to have personal demons.Whatever the reason,the only thing that matters is that a young man died well before his time.

    Whatever happened to Ledger will now be scrutinized & sensationalized relentlessly by the media as they fuel the hype to get to the bottom of this with no purpose other than to feed on his loss.

    28 years old & presumably just acted his socks off in the highest profile role of his career. He leaves behind a young child & a world of hurt for those in his circle of family & friends.

    He was an intensely private young man in spite of his high profile as a successful actor.I hope the media don't get to reveal in death the things that Ledger sought to keep private in life.

    Sorry for sounding preachy but I'm deeply saddened by this & my thoughts are with those who cared for him.

    Terrible. He was a very talented actor, who after The Dark Knight, was probably looking at a leap into legit stardom and the acting elite. Very sad.

    Not preachy at all. I feel the same way. Another sad aside to this story is that his girlfriend, model Gemma Ward found out the same way we did.

    It's gonna be weird watching him in the Joker role after this.

    I dunno if I'll enjoy the performance as much. Not because it will be diminished, but because it will be odd to see.
