Tribute to Ledger

Jun. 27, 2008by:

We’re going full steam ahead with DARK KNIGHT news. This is the home stretch and there’s no turning back. People on my Facebook who have seen TDK are updating their statuses to things like “The Dark Knight is masterpiece” and “Heath Ledger deserves an Oscar nomination.” I can’t believe people have already seen it. Warner Bros. has also released the text that will appear once the film fades to black.

"In memory of our friends Heath Ledger & Conway Wickliffe."

Great move by the whole TDK family to honor Wickliffe, the stunt driver killed in an onset accident, in the same sentence as the far more famous Ledger. But really, would you expect anything less from this group of people?

Extra Tidbit: Wickliffe died while his car, which was following the Batmobile around a racetrack, smashed into a tree.

Renfro

Brad Renfro Jan 15, about two weeks before Heath Ledger. The last known picture of him alive was him and a buddy drunk as shit flipping off a camera. After that, no one saw him for two days. He was a great actor, and will surely be missed, but his career probably peaked too soon.

Brad Renfro...

Halik: There's a little site called imdb.com, or another little toy called google.

I know Brad Renfro isn't involved in The dark knight, I just wanted to point the fact that Hollywood and the media has talked A LOT about Ledger's death (I admire his talent, I think he's one of the biggest loss since River Phoenix), but didn't give a damn about Renfro (I think that troubled guy got a lot of talent...but self destruction caught him too young), that's all.

And yes, I'll wait to SEE the

And yes, I'll wait to SEE the movie to decide MYSELF if it's so great and if Ledger is so great in it.

God Bless them. I feel bad I'm unaware of who Brad Renfro is or how he is involved in this movie.

Nice tribute...

R.I.P LEDGER & WICKLIFFE

Even as I type I'm getting all teary eyed, Heath's death is still fresh in my memory and even more once I see TDK, this film will only remind us of how good of an actor he was and that he will be eternally missed, condolences to the family of the stunt driver as well, this will not only be the best film this year but the most emotional as well, I know I will shed tears on July 18th :(....

oscars

cerealkiller, oscar for Heath`s death.. then they should`ve started with Christopher Reeve or even before that.

Basing on Ledger`s performance on what we have seen so far, I won`t be surprised for his win.

And RIP Conway. I never knew the news until I read this article. You helped on this movie as much as Heath did and we all would honor your work.

I'm going to be honest. I don't think I'll really accept his death until after I see The Dark Knight. I'm still in shock. It was a big deal for me. I remember my friends texting me that night to tell me and then telling me that they were sorry. People knew how much him as an actor and him playing The Joker (my favorite character) meant. It was strange. Kudos on the tribute. Everyone involved seems like a class act. I expect to tear up after the credits roll.

yea seriously cerealkiller, he wouldnt get the oscar because he died, he'd get it for his performance. i'm sure if he hadnt passed away there would still be the oscar buzz.

Nice from WB

To aknowledge both of them. And that pic reminds me so much Brandon Lee in The Crow that's scary. To think both died young in so dark circunstances... dark characters.
