Who was the better actor James Dean, River Phoenix or Heath Ledger?
Heath Ledger, hands down. His performance as Ennis in Brokeback Mountain would be enough for me to say that. But then with The Dark Knight, it just reinforced my opinion of him. Just those two roles and how completely different they are, and how amazingly they were portrayed makes me a firm believer that there will never be another actor quite like Heath Ledger. All of his movies have something special about them.
