Heath Ledger is Dead
Posted Jan 22nd 2008 4:40PM by TMZ Staff

TMZ has learned that Academy Award nominee Heath Ledger has died in NY.

He was found dead in his bed in one of his residences in Soho by his housekeeper at 3:35 PM ET today. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they believe it was not a crime.

The 28-year-old actor has a two year old daughter with former fiancee Michelle Williams.

Story developing...
Sounds like drugs again.

Terrible. Especially after all the good news coming from THE DARK KNIGHT set on his Joker performance.

Holy Crap. Wonder if this affects The Dark Knight at all.

That's crazy... he was really becoming a great actor.

The 28-year-old actor has a two year old daughter with former fiancee Michelle Williams. He was set to play the Joker in the upcoming Batman film "The Dark Knight."

Isn't he married to Michelle Williams, and has children?

And, while I hate to ask:

Spoiler:
Did they finish shooting his scenes in Dark Knight?

Does this begin the death-in-threes cycle?

I just assumed this was an off-color post... wow. That sucks.

Did he take the Joker role a little too seriously or something? I thought he was a pretty squared away guy.
