    From TMZ Heath Ledger Has Died

    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. He was set to play the Joker in the upcoming Batman film "The Dark Knight."

    Quite shocking.
    There's nothing on Google News yet (1650 EST).
    Maybe it's not true.
    I hope not.

    CNN and Fox News have both received confirmation independently from law enforcement officials, sadly.

    Actor Heath Ledger Is Found Dead - City Room - Metro - New York Times Blog
    January 22, 2008, 4:42 pm Actor Heath Ledger Is Found Dead

    By Sewell Chan

    The actor Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in an apartment building at 421 Broome Street in SoHo, according to the New York City police. Mr. Ledger was 28.
    At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A in the building for an appointment with Mr. Ledger, the police said. The masseuse was let in to the home by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Mr. Ledger’s bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Mr. Ledger unconscious. They shook him, but he did not respond. They immediately called the authorities. The police said they did not suspect foul play and said they found pills near body.
    Mr. Ledger, a native of Perth, Australia, won acclaim for his role as a co-star in “Brokeback Mountain”, a 2005 film. The film, based on a short story by Annie Proulx about two cowboys who fall in love, won critical acclaim. Reviewing the film in The New York Times, the critic Stephen Holden wrote, “Mr. Ledger magically and mysteriously disappears beneath the skin of his lean, sinewy character. It is a great screen performance, as good as the best of Marlon Brando and Sean Penn.”
    Calls by The New York Times to Mara Buxbaum, a publicist for Mr. Ledger, and Steve Alexander, the actor’s agent, were not immediately returned this afternoon.

    From the NYT piece:

    Mr. Ledger, a native of Perth, Australia, won acclaim for his role as a co-star in “Brokeback Mountain”, a 2005 film. The film, based on a short story by Annie Proulx about two cowboys who fall in love, won critical acclaim. Reviewing the film in The New York Times, the critic Stephen Holden wrote, “Mr. Ledger magically and mysteriously disappears beneath the skin of his lean, sinewy character.

    I agreed 100 percent. That was a truly persuasive performance.

    The saddest part is he has a very young daughter (aged 3, i believe) with Michelle Williams.

    First, Brad Renfro. Then, just yesterday, the wonderful Suzanne Pleshette died of respiratory failure. It's sad that Heath had to be number three, but that's as it's always been with the world of celebrity. Three, three, three.
