Several news outlets are reporting that Austrailian actor Heath Ledger has passed away today at the age of 28. The cause of death has not yet been determined. Mr. Ledger was the star of such films as A Knights Tale, Brokeback Mountain, and the forth coming Batman sequal The Dark Knight. I have always thought very highly of the man as an actor. Although I knew very little about him personally I am sad to see him go.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his surviving family and friends. May he rest in peace.
