Jude Talks About Stepping in to Finish Heath’s Final Role

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus is opening in limited release in the U.S. on Christmas Day and Jude Law is talking about it was like being asked to help take over Heath Ledger’s role when he died of an accidental prescription drug overdose. He explains, “When I got the call, it was a double tug. I liked Heath very much as a man and admired him as an actor. To help finish his final piece of work was a tribute I felt compelled to make.” Jude stepped in along with Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell to round out the role with each playing a different incarnation of Heath’s character. Jude adds, “Though we were all there in remembrance, Heath's heart pushed us with great lightness to the finish."
