NEW YORK - Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday in a Manhattan apartment in what police sources are calling an apparent suicide or accidental overdose. He was 28.

According to the New York Times, Ledger was found naked and unconscious with pills strewn all around him. Police sources told the Times that the death appeared to be a suicide or an accidental overdose.

A source told msnbc.com's Courtney Hazlett that Ledger had been turning down roles lately. Shocked

Copied from movie thread:

"What a shock. Still can't believe it. I was thinking of him as one of those young actors who will save cinema and will constantly get better when they mature."

apparently playing the joker had made an impact on him.

Quote:
LESS than three months ago, Heath Ledger described his sleepless nights and mental exhaustion as he wrestled with his role as the "psychopathic, mass-murdering, schizophrenic" Joker in the new Batman film.

One night he took a sleeping pill, Ambien, to little effect. He took a second, slept for an hour, but then woke, his mind racing.

"Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night," Ledger told The New York Times.

I had a bad sleeping spell for about a week, 2-4 hours each night. I can tell you that will make you say and do crazy stuff.

I also saw a report on CNN that mentioned a rolled up 100 dollar bill and some white powder. Not sure if that report will hold up. But sleeping pills, cocaine and probably alcohol is not a good combo.

I've had a friend who od'd himself. Was an ex-drug addict. Very talented and smart guy... but you'd never know why he was almost constantly depressed and down on himself.

Don't do drugs fellas.

You'd hope this kind of thing would happen to Rush Limbaugh or O'Reilly instead. Pretty sad.
