Heath Ledger as Rock Hudson?


Unverified rumors are circulating that Heath Ledger is being sought out for the role of Rock Hudson in a new film about the closeted actor who died of AIDS in 1985. Several news outlets report that “sources” say, “After playing a straight man who has a gay relationship, Heath Ledger will do a 180 and play a gay man who has a straight relationship.”

Ledger has reportedly signed on to the new thriller Nautica, and may be teaming up with Jake Gyllenhaal once again if casting directors have their way.
