Heath Ledger dead at 28

You've probably heard by now that Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment in New York City earlier this afternoon.

He leaves behind a wife and a 2-year old daughter.

He also leaves behind an amazing career that was just beginning to take off. The first time I saw him, it was as the oldest son of Mel Gibson's character in The Patriot. He did a great job with the role and I made sure to take note of his name when I saw it in the theater.

I didn't care much for the story itself, but I will admit to having watched Brokeback Mountain once, and Ledger... like I said, I didn't care for what the story entailed, but Ledger did an admirable job with his role.

Ledger had just finished principle photography on The Dark Knight, due out later this summer. I've heard nothing but incredibly strong word about his performance as the Joker... and that it might even be the best Joker ever put on film. Michael Caine has said that it's the "scariest" acting he's seen in his entire life.

I honetly don't know what else to say about this. Such a promising life... gone.
