“I Am Heath Ledger:” First Look at Upcoming Documentary on Spike TV

Heath Ledger will always be one of the biggest “what could have been” stories in Hollywood.  The “what he was” has already been established in the sense that Ledger kept growing as an actor until he put it all together for his incredible performance as The Joker in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.   It was in this film that we saw just how talented and special Ledger was and I think all of us agree that he would have had a legendary career had he not passed away at such a young age.

“He was always a director. Acting was just a way to get there.” This line is from the trailer for the Spike TV documentary I Am Heath Ledger, which opens on a tight shot of the late actor holding a camera. The 90-minute doc, which will have its world premiere April 23 at Tribeca, features sit-downs with those who knew Ledger well, including some A-list appearances by Ben Mendelsohn, Naomi Watts, Ang Lee, and Ben Harper.

I Am Heath Ledger will air on Spike TV May 17, following a limited theatrical release May 3.  You can get a first look at the trailer below:
