"Dark Knight" loses its Joker

This just in from the Associated Press: Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday at a downtown Manhattan residence in a possible drug-related death, police said. He was 28.

The Australian-born actor was nominated for an Oscar for “Brokeback Mountain” and, of course, plays the Joker in the upcoming “The Dark Knight.” I’ve read a lot of comments from director Christopher Nolan on how Ledger will blow people away with his portrayal of the twisted Joker.

Just last night, I watched part of Nolan’s “Batman Begins” on FX. A great movie.

It is a very sad loss for his family and his daughter especially.

Watching this movie now will certainly make a difference to me.

I admired his talent and regret his loss at such a young age.
