Heath Ledger- Thanks for the Memorys

Now that the hysteria is over, I’d like to do my bit for a man who’s movies I Admired.

Heath Andrew Ledger (April 4, 1979 – January 22, 2008) was an Academy Award, BAFTA, Golden Globe, and SAG Award-nominated Australian-born film actor who lived in New York City. After appearing in television roles during the 1990s, Ledger developed a movie career, appearing in nearly 20 films. He starred in both critical and box-office successes, including 10 Things I Hate About You, The Patriot, Monster’s Ball, A Knight’s Tale, and Brokeback Mountain. For his portrayal of Ennis Del Mar in Brokeback Mountain, Ledger was nominated for a 2005 Oscar for “Best Actor in a Leading Role” and won awards from the British Academy and the Australian Film Institute, as well as two MTV Movie Awards.

In addition to his work as an actor and as a producer and director of music videos, Ledger also aspired to be a film director.

Ledger completed filming his role as the Joker in the forthcoming movie The Dark Knight, shortly before dying from an accidental prescription drug overdose at age 28. His last acting project was Terry Gilliam’s unfinished film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

Here is your secret letter… are you ready for it? Your secret letter is “L” as in “Laugh”. Can you remember that? Good. Now get to work and tell all of your goons. We’ll be in touch soon.”

How all the people with phones came to learn each others’ letters, we don’t know, but they added up to a new URL for There you can see a suitcase with stickers for several international cities and a date of travel of April 1, which is tomorrow. So is there something big coming tomorrow? We’ll keep you updated.
