    I was thinking about this on the way into work this morning. I envisioned the following conversation:

    Studio Bigwig: Jesus, we've got to do something about this Batman movie. If it doesn't make a killing opening weekend, my ass is on the line.
    Studio Flunky: The industry's been flat for a year now, sir.
    Bigwig: I know it! And we've got hundreds of millions sunk in Dark Knight. If we don't make half the nut back within a week, we'll both be pushin' fries at people in the fast food line quicker than you can say "Big Mac."
    Flunky: We need more marketing, sir.
    Bigwig: Aaaah, we've already thrown ten mil at primetime trailers. I'm not throwin' good money after bad. We need somethin' different.
    Flunky: How about free publicity?
    Bigwig: Great. How we supposed to get publicity for free?
    Flunky: What if some big news story, connected with the film, were to break big while it was in post-production? Like what if the star died?
    Bigwig: Bale? Bale can't die, he's the franchise!
    Flunky: You're right, sir. But we don't have to use the Joker again, do we?
    Bigwig: [pause] Flunky, I'm shocked. You have got to be the sneakiest, most Machia-... Machi-... Mach....
    Flunky: Machiavellian, sir.
    Bigwig: Right... the sneakiest bastard I've ever come across.
    Flunky: So I'll set it up, then.
    Bigwig: I don't know nothin' about it.
    Flunky: Of course not, sir.

    I bet The Dark Knight is going to say "Dedicated to our friend Heath Ledger (1979-2008)" during the credits, whether or not the crew hated his guts.

    You know it... but I don't think the crew hated his guts. I get the impression he was fairly likeable, as stars go.

    Reminds me a bit of the morbid curiosity which surrounded The Crow.

    I bet all the other actors out there are thinking: "Fuck! What if he gets nominated for an Academy Award? How the fuck am I going to compete with a tragically prematurely-deceased golden boy?!"

    I was thinking about coming here (this forum) earlier to see if anyone had attempted to type him. I thought about it last night after watching all the interviews and reports...and had always kind of thought of him as Kurt Cobainish....and today found it funny that Kurt Cobain was one of his idols.
    So...not sure of the 4-letter typing, but I do see him as a 5w4 as Kurt supposedly is.

    ????

    *i find it odd, i always have a magnetic draw to 5w4...and an odd disgust... as I am supposed 5w4 also....

    I think fate has punished him for being inaudible during Brokeback Mountain.

    Not to mention that in all the sex scenes he had his clothes on. That's not a sex scene, it's just flanel on flanel.

    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    The guy had so much going for him. He was young, a good actor, had a two year old daughter, seems like a good person, and then all of sudden, he croaks.

    He DOES remind me a bit of Kurt Cobain like GirlAmerica said.

    I also wonder what's going to happen to The Dark Knight. It could make a fortune, and sweep the Oscars (is that the right award?). There'll probably be a Heath Ledger dedication thing too.

    When I heard about it, I just didn't believe it. I mean, I didn't really follow the guy, but I was just taken aback by how everything turned out.
    Still using a needle to break apart a grain of sand.
