Goodbye Heath

RIP Heath Ledger

It's always disappointing when someone whose talent you admire and enjoy suddenly dies. As of right now, there are no official reports as to the cause of his death but I'm reminded of when River Phoenix died of an overdose. Both Heath and River were young talented actors who died in their 20's. Both actors could have easily cashed in on their good looks and made bonzo bucks making mediocre action films but instead chose to act in films with a little more bite to them.

If you have Netflix, I recommend renting Running on Empty and Monster's Ball, both are good examples of excellent acting by young men with a great future in front of them.

So fare thee well Heath, I look forward to seeing your interpretation of the Joker in the The Dark Knight this summer.
