It's been eight years since Heath Ledger died from a lethal drug overdose. Heath Ledger's father recently sat down for an interview to discuss his son's truly tragic death.
“The last conversation Kate had with him was this discussion about his medications and she warned him, ‘‘You can’t mix drugs that you don’t know anything about’,” Ledger’s father Kim told news.com.au.
“He said ‘Katie, Katie, I’ll be fine’. Well, that’s a cavalier boy’s answer. It just put his whole system to sleep I guess,” Mr. Ledger said.
Heath's father went on to say that his son wasn't addicted to opioids--he just made the mistake of mixing the wrong drugs. And that Heath's chaotic work schedule had begun to take its toll on the actor.
“There is pressure on everybody, especially young people, to perform and to keep going. He was a young guy that travelled all the time for work. Even as a two-year-old, he hardly ever slept. He was trying to work and travel and do everything in a short space of time.”
RIP Heath Ledger you were a fiercely talented young man, taken from us all too soon.
And here I thought Jared Leto trying to go 'method' for Joker by sending in used and abused condoms and anal beads, was as bad 'n sick 'n twisted as it'd ever get; but nah, turns out actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje had something up his sleeve. Akinnuoye-Agbaje says, “I did a lot of research on cannibalistic habits from back to the Mayans and the Aztecs, right up to modern-day cannibals.”
He says he'd also watch a video of a Japanese cannibal, Issei Sagawa, who killed and ate a Dutch woman. He kept it on his phone so he could play it every day...uh. Can't even, right now. Can't even.
“As sick as it sounds, the moment I start to play that video, I’m in the form of Croc, because it’s really important for this creature to be thirsty for flesh, even when he’s around The Squad.”
Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5th. Check out the trailer below:
After the popularity of The Avengers in 2012, the floodgates have opened on big tent-pole Superhero Universes. To compete with Marvel/Disney, Sony is going ahead with a Spider-Man Universe, Fox has their X-Men starting to make solo films and Warner Brothers is teaming up with DC to bring every Justice League member they can find to the big screen.
Today we learned WB's exact line-up. With 10 confirmed movies from 2016-2020, they're shaping up to be Marvel's biggest competition.
Karl Kesel, a writer and inker for DC Comics, is selling a trove of old comics that he's been collecting and preserving since childhood.
What for? The Kesels recently adopted a baby with heroin-addicted birth parents, and need money to pay for the child's rehabilitation costs.
Kesel has found some solace in the sale:
I don't necessarily feel like I'm putting away childish things. I may be putting away my childish things. But I'm embracing Isaac's.
I think I'm getting another childhood here.
Conservative group One Million Moms is at it again, directing its not-quite-a-million members to boycott Marvel and DC Comics due to recent announcements from both companies about their futures of their gay characters.
DC has revealed that a major character is soon going to come out as gay, while Marvel announced the engagement of superhero Northstar to his boyfriend, Kyle.
These events don't sit will with One Million Moms, whose anti-gay agenda has also led them to protest the wedding of Archie Comics' first gay character, Kevin Keller.
"Children desire to be just like superheroes," said the group in a statement. "Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying, 'I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?'"
The statement goes on to accuse the publishers of trying to "indoctrate [sic] impressionable young minds."
Marvel and DC have yet to respond to the homophobic comments.
