Details about this are just coming in, but acclaimed actor Heath Ledger was found dead in his Manhattan apartment this afternoon. The 28-year-old co-star of Brokeback Mountain and the upcoming Batman sequel, The Dark Knight, was found by a housekeeper, and there are reports of pills near his body. But details are unsurprisingly sketchy right now.

UPDATE:



"This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet," according to NYPD via CNN.
