Law & Order and Heath Ledger?
« on: November 29, 2008, 06:30:15 pm »
I'm afraid many of us saw this one coming.

From Page Six of the New York Post:

November 26, 2008 --

"LAW & Order" has ripped another local story from the headlines. A series insider reports an upcoming plot is "supposed to be about Heath Ledger" and features a male supermodel, played by Ryan Locke, who "has a great career and gets all the ladies." Perhaps the eeriest comparison is to Ledger's actual death by overdose when the character "leaves a club with a girl. They have sex and do drugs, and the next morning, his friend finds him dead."

Artiste, it's not the exact story of Heath's death.  The writers for "Law & Order" often get inspired by true crimes or actual news events and let their imaginations run wild.  There will probably be a couple of similarities between the TV victim and Heath, but it won't be a true story by any means.

I'm not sure what the similarity is supposed to be. It sounds more like a standard L&O-type plot.
