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.

In a recent interview, Suicide Squad Director, David Ayer talked a bit about the outlandish rehearsal regimen he encouraged his cast adopt; and it's honestly sounding like just the kind of crazy you'd need, to get your actors in the right mindset for this kind of film:

“It wasn’t a normal rehearsal, we’d talk about their lives, their history, and really got them to open up as people to each other. I also had them fight. I had them fight each other. You learn a lot about who a person really is when you punch them in the face. It gets rid of a lot of the actor stuff.”

As far as Joker's Hot Topic-esque mural of tattoos, Ayer said the following:

“A lot of it has to do with creating a character with some kind of history and footprint in our world, and not have this sacrosanct being outside of our continuum, our reality. If a guy like him really existed today, where would he come from?“ The tattoos tell a very specific story, and eventually people will decipher them and understand what’s going on, but obviously they’re contentious, any time you do something new it’s contentious. There’s very specific stories and Easter eggs in those tattoos. And even his teeth, there’s an entire story behind that which is absolutely canon. It’s putting his history on his body. This Joker is a little more working class, who I believe could live in our world.”



Alriighty then. And what would a proper closing be to this bit on the Suicide Squad be without the most recent Jared Leto Joker antics be without this little gem that just came to light about how Leto would treat his costume designers?:

“When we first met him, he said — look girls, I’m going to be pretty intense, I’m going to be the Joker when I come for fittings. Sometimes he tried to terrify us, but we’re strong women. He was growling at us, and we’d play back.

This fan film follows Joker and Harley Quinn as they rampage around like maddened, in-love lunatics and go so far as to live-stream their torturing of a asylum psychotherapist to show their affection for each other. We even get the origins of Joker's f**ked up teeth...
