I was shocked to the highest level when I saw this news on tv. I really can't believe that this actor I admired in the Knight's Tale movie is already dead! he's still young! and to think that I am so excited to see him play the psychotic freak Joker in the Dark Knight sequel of Batman Returns. this really made me sad. the news said New York police are currently investigating on the matter and they are saying that his death might have something to do with illegal drugs. his body was found in his house in Manhattan.

Yes, it's sad but nothing new. He was only on the news because he was a famous celebrity. Think about how many regular average people die every day and nobody even knows or cares about them. The media is just using his name to get attention.

Another news article said he was suffering from pnemonia and he got an overdose of the medication he took for his condition.

I couldn't believe that he was gone when I heard. He is so young and the world has lost a very talented young man. I feel for Michelle even though they are not together any more and especially for his daughter.

yeah, he is young and there so much more ahead of him in the future. its really a waste for a good actor to die young, a great loss for his family and the industry.

When my husband read the news on his cell phone he told me about it. I didn't believe him. We were just walking into our hotel room so he turned on CNN and there it was. It is just so sad. His little daughter is only a few months older than mine. They are saying he could possibly have accidentally overdosed on sleeping pills because he had said previously that he had sleeping problems. They found prescription and over the counter sleeping pills.
