The Trailer For Spike’s Heath Ledger Documentary Will Make You Misty-Eyed
Get your tissues ready.
By Julia Brucculieri

It’s been almost 10 years since Heath Ledger died of an accidental overdose, but the world has not forgotten him.

The late actor is the subject of a new documentary, soon to be released by Spike, titled “I Am Heath Ledger.” The trailer for the film, which includes interviews with his friends, family and fellow Hollywood stars, was released on Tuesday ― and it’s got us reaching for the tissues.

“Heath was the most alive human,” says singer-songwriter Ben Harper. “If it wasn’t on the edge, it didn’t interest him.”

The almost 3-minute spot features plenty of intimate footage of Ledger ― and his signature smile ― along with clips from some of his most famous movies, including “Brokeback Mountain” and “Lords of Dogtown.”

“I Am Heath Ledger” premieres on April 23 at the Tribeca Film Festival, with limited release starting May 3. It will also air on May 17 on Spike.

I live under a rock. Is "Spike" a person or a TV network? (Some of them have pretty strange names.)

Thanks. I knew about the vampire. Also Spike Lee, but I felt pretty sure it wasn't him.

Not sure if this has been posted (it was last November) but I just found it in reading about this documentary in Australian news.

Must mark the calendar, and set the  dvr  to record.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Just watched the trailer. Brings the heartbreak back. But oh, that smile.
All the things that could have been, what a loss. :'(
