Heath Ledger Dead at 28
The Associated Press is reporting that actor Heath Ledger has been found dead in a New York City apartment.
According to the New York Times City Blog, Ledger was discovered by a masseuse who had arrived at the house for a scheduled appointment and that pills were found near the body.
As recently as last week, Ledger was reportedly in London shooting the upcoming film "The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus." Ledger will (will he?) next be seen in the role of the Joker in the next Batman Installment, "The Dark Knight."
Ledger, nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in "Brokeback Mountain," leaves behind a two-year-old daughter Matilda Rose with ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams.
