Heath Ledger, who will play The Joker in The Dark Knight this summer, has been found dead in his Manhattan apartment, just an hour ago. At this time, there is no word on the cause of death, and, though rumors abound, there has been no official word on what it might have been.
Though there is also no word on how this might effect the production of the film, principal photography on The Dark Knight is said to be done, so the film might not be affected. Ledger leaves behind a child, with his ex-wife Michelle Williams, a co-star from Brokeback Mountain.
