That sucks that he died. He is great in TDK trailer, maybe his best performance yet...I read he was taking sleeping pills because he was barely getting 2 hours a night and that combined with his pneumonia contributed to his death (as opposed to a narcotics overdose). Some speculated that playing a character that was so dark really messed with his head. Scary stuff.
I'm sure you all heard about Jack Nicholson being miffed because he got passed over to play The Joker in TDK. Well, here was his reaction
to hearing HL had died.
Reporter: Did you hear that HL is dead?
Reporter: HL died in NY...Overdose.
Jack: Oh, that's awful....Well, I warned him.
Then he snarls that trademark Nicholson grin.
