Australian Heros Dropping Like Flies!

Post by ruotwocone »

So if you haven't heard the news... wow. I'm more than a little in shock. Also, with Stevie Irwin going down that makes 2 of the about 5-7 famous Aussies pushing up daisies in a little more than a year. More importantly, what does this mean for the upcoming Batman movie? Was filming finished? Can they still complete the film? If I don't get my Batman fix, I'm gonna be pissed. Also rest in peace. Plus, Russel Crowe needs to watch his back.

Also, creepily smiling comic-movie characters seem to have a poor track record.

Yeah that was pretty shocking news.
Batman is finished. Apparently he was working on a new film with Terry Gilliam recently.
However, he didn't seem like the most stable individual. A couple of years ago Jason Lee was on the View Askew web board and he mentioned that he ended up going to Ledger's house for a party and was immediately offered cocaine and other sundry drugs. Apparently he was quite the drug fiend (Ledger, that is, not Lee).

That said, I can't friggin' wait until Dark Knight. I can't remember the last time I have been this excited for a movie. Ledger looks pimp as Joker, and it just looks awesome.

Actually, I had just learned his career really started playing a gay cyclist (on television, was it?) in Australia.

I also just found out that Alan Tudyk was in A Knights Tale*, which makes me want to see that one again.**

*And I also learned, just now (thanks to the Wiki), that Nathan Fillon, Adam Baldwin and Alan Tudyk, all from Firefly, play marines in Halo 3, all of which resemble their Firefly characters. Makes me want to play it.
** The gorgeous Shannyn Sossamon is also a draw.

He doesn't say "mate" in that sentence.. I'm fairly certain he doesn't lol.

As an Australian... I'd have to say that I don't say mate all to often.

Adding to the Heath Ledger story, it was all over our radio's and such. I found out at 8 in the morning, along with a thousand texts and movies specially put onto television.
What I'm about to say might sound wrong... but I'd like to point out that the police were fairly certain that it was suicide* and last I checked, suicide was a choice. He had a baby and everything... that makes me sadder than his choice of movies. I work at domino's and so many people came in and told me that they liked him until he did that "gay as movie, brokeback mountain" now, that is almost as bad as his suicide in the first place.

Oh, stereotypes... It's like Canadians and "eh". It doesn't get said nearly as much as the media makes it out to (well, at least not in my part of Canadia).

You were right, he didnt say mate. I would have laughed if he had pulled out a gunblade.

Eh, I'm not all that fussed with Ledger dieing, even though he did come from Perth and all. It pisses me off more than anything to hear about it every fucking hour of the day. "Perth's own hollywood superstar" Fuck.

Yep, I sure do like hearing about popular people and things etc.

Stereotypes on the other hand.

Are also uninteresting to me.
Not a big fan of signatures.

If you know of Australian people who don't say mate, you're talking to the wrong Australians.

You're talking to Australians who speak in full sentences, wear shirts and can spell Australia.

You <i>want</i> to be talking to the dickheads. They manage to get it in between every word.


...That being said, tomorrow is Australia Day, where everyone has to say it by law. :D
