HEATH LEDGER (Photo: Getty Images) UPDATE III: Police told the Times that the scene of the crime was the Soho apartment of actress Mary-Kate Olsen, but Olsen reps claim this is not the case. (Olsen, however, is currently attending the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.)

UPDATE II: The New York Times has confirmed the actor's death as well. Ledger, 28, was found unconscious by a housekeeper and a masseuse early this morning, apparently the victim of a pill overdose. Calls to Mara Buxbaum and Steve Alexander, Ledger's publicists, went straight to voicemail.

UPDATE: TMZ confirms.

We're hearing a totally crazy rumor that Heath Ledger has been found dead of an overdose. It could be totally off-base, but if it's not we want credit for "reporting" it first. Let us know if you've heard anything!
