I just heard this on the news - how awful. He made some wonderful films in his short life.

I hadn't heard about this. That is so sad. Any word about cause yet?

The news report I saw said it could be a drug overdose but nothing definite until the post. You know, I don't think there is one family in the world that isn't touched in some way by drug use/addiction. Just breaks your heart.

They said he was found in bed with sleeping pills next to him. It makes me sad, I liked him. This was totally out of left field.

My favorite of his films was Monster's Ball, an incredible movie IMO. But the role he played in Broke Back Mountain was an amazing performance for someone so young.

"A Knights Tale" was my favorite. I loved his role in a light film that made me laugh.

I really liked him and I'm also shocked.

"I just can't quit you".....
What a waste. What's up with these young stars who have the world BTA? I was kind of hoping he would do something again with Mel Gibson (The Patriot). I just saw part of an older movie of his a few days ago, the one with Julia Stiles.... 10 things I hate about you (I think). What a waste. He was really developing as an actor, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have his own demons.
