This really sucks. I've enjoyed him in all his roles. Great talent.

RIP

His death is going to really screw-up the two part "Mocking Jay" movies.
They already filmed part one. how can they finish the other half without him? His character plays a fairly big role in the final movies.
Guess they will just have to use another actor for the last one. Sad.

The odds were not in his favour...

Mockingjay could be done without him tbh. It'd a waste but if it turns out to be self inflicted then...

That said, I do feel sorry for his wife and children he selfishly left behind.

You have absolutely NO idea why he used drugs, I really hate self righteous and ignorant people about drug use. Most drug users don't do it because it is "fun" and cannot simply stop. RIP.

He was old enough and well off enough that there's no good excuse.

It seems to happen a lot for those with fame and fortune.

What a shame.

He was a good actor, but i always saw him as having problems. Even when my old lady is watching her entertainment shows they always rank him as being the ugliest. No wonder he was depressed with all that crap around him.

But he had a wife and kids, just can't contemplate why having those 2 gifts in your life would not be enough to help you overcome things.

Ah well, each to their own. RIP.

No sympathy at all, he had family to look out for and instead chose to dable with hard drugs for his own selfish needs.

Bieber gets drug accusations all the time, everyone goes on to then give him ****, a grown arse man with kids however gets a sympathy section on all the news paper and tv networks.

What a joke.

Is that the voice of experience ? maybe people like you are the ignorant ones.

He paid the ultimate price for abusing his body, the tragedy is that his family have to pick up the pieces.
Great actor, but a selfish human being and One less smackhead on this god-forsaken rock.
