I was really disappointed when The Joker (Jack Nicholson) died in the first Batman movie.
You see, in the comics, The Joker never dies. He just gets locked away in Arkham Asylum and keeps escaping or being released.
But there’s a new Batman Movie coming out. Batman: The Dark Knight. (can’t wait!)
Heath Ledger is playing the Joker.
Heath Ledger was found dead in a Manhattan apartment this morning (afternoon in NY)
The Joker dies again.
I always liked him. Seemed like a true Aussie.
Larrikin, Petulant, Quick Witted, Good drinker.
In 2006 when I was working in Washington, a story came through from the Toronto office.
The passport girls there were serving him at the counter as he was renewing his passport.
He asked, “So, is that everything you need?”
Spunky Passport girl says, “Yes, the photo you had provided is too small, so we’ll need another one of those…and a coffee”
So what does he do? He comes back with new photos…and a coffee.
Pity about the drugs.
Heath Ledger – 1979 – 2008
