Wes Bentley Opens Up About Comeback From Heroin Addiction
His best friend, Heath Ledger, had died a year earlier from a prescription drug overdose, the same year Bentley was arrested and pled guilty to heroin possession. There were no auditions on the horizon. In serious debt with the IRS, he had hit rock bottom...
Sounds like a great guy. Good for him getting sober.
Were he and Heath really BFF's?
I've always liked him. I'm glad he's making a comeback.

They worked together for three months making a picture. In fandom, that becomes life long best friends
I haven't read the article. What are his great qualities?
He originated the male lead in the Broadway play Venus In Fur.
For some reason he was suddenly replaced by Hugh Dancy
Anyone know why?
He wasn't suddenly replaced by Hugh Dancy. Dancy took over the role when the play went to Broadway like a year after the off-Broadway run.
Not sure why. DL rumors were that Bentley just wasn't very good in the play.
R8 then what did female lead Nina Ariandra do during that time between the play?
She learned to crochet.

Collect unemployment? Which she is probably doing now since 99.99% of the world has no idea who she still is.
