Heath Ledger, 28, died on Jan. 22, 2008 from an accidental intoxication from prescription drugs. He had finished filming his Oscar-winning role as The Joker in "The Dark Knight," but was still filming "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" at the time of his death. Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell stepped in to fill Ledger's shoes in director Terry Gilliam's surreal fantasy.

    I'd just become 13 in Sept. '55 when Dean died. Only three movies…his role as Jett Rink in “Giant” was classic. There's a classic photo of him with his Porsche Spyder and others with Natalie Wood.
