    Oscar winners typically get to play a really good role, perhaps not immediately but within a few years after their triumph.

    If Heath Ledger had survived, in which nominated role do you think he would have most likely been cast for the follow up to his Oscar winning performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight?

    Hmmm I dunno. Maybe “The Master” or “12 Years a Slave”.

    I actually can see him in Master so that. 

    Can’t wait for the James Dean and River Phoenix editions.

    I don’t want to imagine anyone other than Joaquin Phoenix in The Master. 

    I could see Ledger as Aron Ralston in 127 Hours. Not saying the role was easy, but there are probably quite a few actors who could have fit that role well.

    We think alike. Sometimes. I chose Ralston, too.

    Ledger and Franco are within a year of each other in age. I think the isolation of both of Ledger’s Oscar recognized roles, the Joker and Ennis, demonstrates a command of the screen that would make him a natural candidate to play the long sequence in 127 Hours alone on screen.

    The Joker was an incredible performance that terrified the viewer and thrilled the moviegoer simultaneously. Ledger’s premature death robbed us of a lifetime of interesting work.

    The thought of Heath in “The Master” gives me chills. So sad what could have been with him.
