Three Big Actors Take Over Heath Ledger's Movie Role

It takes big names to fill the shoes of the dearly-departed Heath Ledger, as Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell will take over Heath's final role, in the unfinished movie The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

A rep for Jude said that these three superstars are tapped to play the role of Tony, but that she was unaware of how it would be done. One rumor speculates that each actor will play a different version of the character, and the footage that Heath shot before his death will also be included.

Heath was shooting the movie in London, when he left on a break and went back to New York, where he died. His co-star Christopher Plummer told of the actor before his death, "Heath was in very high spirits. He was just enjoying himself tremendously. It's a rather fanciful script, and he was wonderful in this role."

Seeing the movie should be wild -- and sad.
