Heath's so much hotter and more talented than Daniel, at any age. I'm sure the studio wanted to have cast him in the first and all the subsequent movies, except JK Rowling had that stupid thing about only casting British actors. She should have allowed Aussies.
Do you think Heath Ledger would have made a better Harry Potter than Daniel Radcliffe?

Heath would also have made a much better Anakin Skywalker. He's much better looking than Hayden Christiansen, and no one would deny he's a better actor. George Lucas was stupid not to cast him.
He also would have made a great Jar Jar Binks, for that better. He was much handsomer than that dumb CGI thing.

Heath would have been better than Meryl Streep in "Sophie's Choice".

The bigger crime is that he was robbed by not getting the part as John Huston's Annie in 1982.

Honestly, if you don't want to get therapy for your obsession with Ledger, fine. It's your life.
But will you stop posting ten new threads every fucking day! Find a fan board or something.

Heath wasn't very good looking. He was a horrible father and a junkie.
It's funny how you white folk always make the stars out as victims. If a brother is on drugs and OD's after buying them in a park, he's a loser junkie.
But if a rich actor is on drugs and ODs, he's a victims of physicians who "allowed" him to doctor shop.
This racist double standard needs to stop.

Everyone knows that Jerry Herman wanted Heath for MAME. As MAME, not Patrick, but Warner's wanted to go with a known talent in Lucy.

Heath has been cast in the next Harry Potter flick, "Hogwarts Zombie Takeover - This time it's personal!"

Heath Ledger. That name sounds familiar. Wasnt he the balding junkie who died ages ago?
|by Anonymous||reply 22||02/09/2013|
Do I have to be the boring, clueless poster to point out that Ledger was born in 1979, which would have made him 21/22 at the time the first Harry Potter movie was made in 2001? He's a full decade older than Radcliffe, yes he is.

"Gary Morton talked Heath out accepting the role."
Did he wisely talk Heath out of accepting the role?
|by Anonymous||reply 25||02/09/2013|
r23, at 21/22 Heath would have been far more capable at memorizing dialogue and complicated spells for the film. Radcliffe's 12 year old brain would have hardly been developed as Heath. If only the idiots making the film had a basic grasp of human maturation and psychology.
Those idiots are lucky Radcliffe didn't take someone's eye out with an errant wand thrust or destroy anything on set with a magic spell gone wrong. 12 year olds get into trouble like that, 21/22 year olds do not. Heath is simply the better choice for the movie, admit it.

What I wish Ang Lee had done was realized that Heath was so much more handsome and sexy than Jake Gyllenhaal that Heath had played both roles of Jack and Ennis, in split screen, wearing different make-up with different hair colors and facial hair. Lee could have used really sophisticated CGI in the sex scene to have (in effect) Heath fuck himself.
Then the ending would have been even sadder (because after all, we'd have lost one of our Heath Ledgers!)
|by Anonymous||reply 31||02/09/2013|
Actually, casting him as Anakin Skywalker would have been great!
Well, great for the Star Wars franchise, maybe not so great for Ledger. But he was the right age (21 when "AotC" was made), and might have had enough raw talent to have survived George Lucas's direction.

One thing is sure. He would have been a great Dorothy in Golden Girls, but he didn't put out for Marc Cherry so he didn't get the part. Stupid move, Heath. You'd be a legend by now.

Heath wore make-up with such panache as the Joker that it makes me sad George Lucas did not consider him to play Queen Amidala. Plus he's much better looking than Natalie Portman.

He would have been to old for the role. An awesome actor though. To the ignorant troll who said Heath was a junkie, he was not. You do not know what you are talking about. There are people who do and it sure is not you. Sad that people like you lap up the crap by the spoon feeding media. People like you buy their mags and pay for their lifestyle. Ever think that just maybe the general public does not know everything about an actor? just maybe he was a normal human being with health issues just like everyone else? Oh and jealous much?!

I'll say it - I've never thought he was exceptionally great (secretly I did love him in 10 Things I Hate About You). His performance in Batman was one of the worst I have seen and definitely the most annoying. The ONLY reason he won the Oscar for best supporting actor was because he OD'd.
