Very shocking news and such a talent, I was really looking forward to seeing his turn as The Joker in the new Batman film, which according to Michael Caine is one of the all-time great performances.

Very sad end for such a promising young man.

This is just such a shock. Really unbelievable, my first thought was for his baby.

And just because someone overdoses doesn't mean they're a drug addict. If it was sleeping pills or anti depressants that he took it means he overdosed on prescription medication.

I'm also infuriated at his health care (assuming he had some).....If he died from pneumonia...WHY? He is a healthy young man otherwise, with right medication he should have gotten over this.

The sleeping pill that was found around his apartment was Zolpidem....a drug that has already proved to warrant a very important safety message before administering to patients amongst Aussie GP's and one that the US TGA has chosen to omit certain "important" safety risks from their packets.

Interesting......An autopsy will reveal all, we hope.

I'm infuriated by the media too. Channel 7 was using his death in their commercials to promote themselves as the team that brings you all the up-to-date news. Disgusting.

I feel really sorry for his family too - it was reported that they found out about his death while listening to the radio. I hope the media now leaves them alone to grieve in peace.

It's just sad, sad, sad.....I only heard it out last night at a club, strangest piece of news i've ever heard out, I initially thought it was a joke. Part of it is because 'Movie actors don't die'...when you see someone on screen whoever it is, Carry Grant, James Dean,'s hard to look up at the screen and imagine these people very full of life on screen as being dead. Cinema does immortalise people, and hopefully it will in a way have immortalised Heath.

Another thing is the guy was just 7 years older than me, it is just very very weird thinking about it that way.

They'll be an autopsy today, the media could at least refrain from speculation and trying to dig up dirt until the results of that are revealed. If he did have pneumonia it could have been related to that, he could have had an undiagnosed health problem-there are other possibilities.

It's way beside the point really, but The Dark Knight should be a great send iconic role to remember him by.

They take you away or they hold up a mirror and you can glean and feel so much. And he was a part of all that.

so true. what a beautiful way to put it. He already had a great career, and it was surely only going to get better... it fucking sucks, that's all I can say. And fuck the media.

Like I posted in the Joker thread, I still cannot wrap my head around this one. I turned the tv off last night so I wouldn't come across any of the media coverage. It would have made me too angry.

And reading Irvine's "Heath, I swear..." brought tears to my eyes.

As for what the paparazzi are doing, I think Heath and Michelle said it best:
