Hmm..this one's tough...

Heath Ledger fans out of the UK are asking movie execs to retire the Joker from upcoming sequels to better preserve the performance by Ledger before his untimely death a year ago.

I don't know. On one hand I can see where they stand but on the other, it is a character. A character not owned by the estate of Ledger or originated by him.

Now if they wanted to retire Ennis from Brokeback Mountain....sigh.

It's still sad, isn't it?

Poor guy - nothing like having an accidental overdose at the prime of your career, but to top it off, dying in the home of an Olson twin.

I think winning the awards for this amazing role (just saw this the other night and he was incedible) should be enough.
