This wasn't supposed to happen

Count me among the many who were deeply troubled to hear of Heath Ledger's passing. This was someone who was truly emerging as, not a star, but an actor, a route that always gets more respect from me. I thought his work as a cowboy who couldn't express himself with words in Brokeback Mountain was an incredible feat, and the clips I've seen of his performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight gave me reason to look forward to this coming July.

Rather than show a clip of him from either of those two movies, though, I'm going to show him in 10 Things I Hate About You. It's not a Dramatic Achievement by any means, but at least it'll leave you with a smile on your face.
