Actor Dies Of Overdose

Actor Heath Ledger passed away this afternoon from a drug overdose.

Ledger received an Oscar nomination in 2006 for his role in "Brokeback Mountain," starring opposite Ann Hathaway, a Vassar dropout. He was twenty-eight years old. He most recently played a Bob Dylan-esque character in "I'm Not There" and will be playing the Joker in the upcoming "Batman" film.
