    Thoughts? I thought he pulled off the role perfectly, but felt this has 'some' influence in his demons

    I think he was just like most young movie stars, he partied too hard and paid the price. I still want to know why that Olsen girl wont say what happened in his room that night.

    But yes he was perfect as the Joker.

    I dont Think it did, he was already well underway with his next film project wbut was suffering from extreme insomnia and had many percriptions for such. As time went on he built a tollerance to the pills and had to take more and was starting to mix them, which is apprently what did for him.

    I dont think there was anything sinister just a tragic death of a talented young actor.

    But the mental tranformation into such a role must have created some minor mental issues, even if temporary. He spent weeks alone just to master the role, and I think he engineered his mind a bit too much, and exhausted himself, but had created so much personailty and character within his own mind, that he had loads of info running through it, which initially kept him up, and requiring sleep aid

    There was an article somewhere that he did admit that it had affected him mentally because it was such a dark role.

    He must not have been too good of a full rounded actor - by that I mean being able to distant himself from his roles

    You will probably find there are quite a few actors that find it difficult to distance themselves, everything only tends to come out once an actor has died.
