So, the very first thing I found out when I came online today? Is that Heath Ledger is dead.

I wasn't even that huge a fan of his, but I was really looking forward to The Dark Knight and his Joker and, well...

I honestly have no words.

I believe the movie was already out of filming and will be going ahead. If it's any consolation. =/

Not really, sadly. :(

Egads, it's going to be so intensely creepy watching the movie...

I actually found out about this news when I was talking to my brother, whose the same age as Heath, on the phone. That gave him a nice freak out. I wasn't that big a fan either, but he was one of the better actors of his age bracket and he likely had a promising career ahead of him. It really is too bad.

He'd been filming a movie with Terry Gilliam, but don't know how big his part was in that or how much they got done filming. Batman was in post-production, so that won't be effected. However, it's going to be morbid business for a re-cast if Joker was intended to appear in any of the future movies.

I found out when I checked my JF flist, and the post I linked was the top post. And I just went WHAT!

I was aware of the Gilliam role, since I've been lurking around a bunch of Batman sites since I saw the trailer for The Dark Knight.

And yes, any recasting will be creepy as fuck.

...It's wrong that now I really want a Joker icon, isn't it?

Yeah, I know. And he's a Perth boy; came from the Hills, like me. I know people who went to school with him.

And he's only 2 weeks older than me. Fuuuck.

Okay, now that is creepy.

The whole thing is weirding me out.

Sad. I wasn't a huge fan, but I still love Two Hands. You ever seen that one?

No, I hadn't seen it, but I've heard good things.

My brother is named Heath, so all these headlines saying something about 'Heath' being 'dead' are doubly freaking me about, besides the shock at the actual news itself...

Okay, that's creepy.
