Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. This week, I chatted with reporter Jenny Vrentas, who covers the New York Giants for The Newark Star-Ledger. MV: Both the Ravens and Giants are coming off embarrassing losses. Ravens fans saw what happened to their team, at least before they left M&T Bank Stadium during the fourth quarter. But what happened to the Giants, particularly Eli Manning and the passing game, in their shutout loss to the Atlanta Falcons?

Report: Richardson medics turned away The first ambulance sent to a ski resort where actress Natasha Richardson fell was turned away, a paramedic told a Canadian newspaper. Richardson fell Monday while taking a beginners ski course in Quebec and died Wednesday in a New York hospital of blunt impact to the head. The Globe and Mail reported on its Web site late Wednesday that Yves Coderre, director of operations at Ambulances Radisson, said ski patrollers requested an ambulance after Richardson fell, and the company sent its medics to Mont Tremblant resort.

Hollywood legends are a funny thing. They're not always a matter of longevity; if they were, there would be no more revered figure in movie history than Lillian Gish, and how many people younger than 40 have even heard of her? They don't necessarily reflect youth snuffed out before its time; Brad Renfro's recent death, though undeniably tragic, hasn't guaranteed him a spot in the Hollywood firmament. And they don't necessarily have much to do with the quality of the work. Deborah Kerr was an extraordinarily gifted actress with a surprising range, but you don't see her image turning up on key chains and Internet tributes.

Heath Ledger died at an age when many gifted actors first reach liftoff. At 28, he had achieved acclaim, popularity and riches. But he was just beginning to define himself as an actor and a star. In Todd Haines' I'm Not There (2007), he played a tortured big-screen idol, ill at ease with conventional accomplishment and fame, in the manner of Bob Dylan - or James Dean.

NEW YORK-- --Heath Ledger is driving me home. Movie stars don't usually drive journalists anywhere, especially distances that require knowledge of rules of New York streets. But this Brooklyn transplant of five months powers his car - a blue BMW - with the leisurely assurance of a cowboy on the range. The star of Brokeback Mountain, set for release in Baltimore on Jan. 6, Ledger is slung back in his seat, his long legs stretched out in ratty jeans, a hood pulled over his dusty brown hair.

Heath Ledger, the Australian actor who earned an Academy Award nomination for his turn as a stubbornly taciturn gay ranch hand in Brokeback Mountain, was found dead yesterday in a Manhattan apartment, New York police said. He was 28. A housekeeper sent to fetch Mr. Ledger for a massage appointment found him naked and unresponsive about 3:30 p.m., NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. Police sources told The New York Times yesterday that sleeping pills were found near Mr. Ledger's body, leading them to suspect suicide or an accidental overdose as the cause of death.

If Heath Ledger wins an Oscar on Sunday, history suggests his untimely death will have had little to do with it. For when it comes to the Academy Awards, death is almost never a good career move. That may come as a shock to some Oscar critics, convinced the awards are far more about sympathy and public opinion than merit. Academy voters, they argue, love to vote for older stars who have yet to win (Henry Fonda, winning for On Golden Pond in 1982, at age 76), or actors who have endured serious tragedy or heartbreak (Elizabeth Taylor, who won for BUtterfield 8 in 1961, after nearly dying from pneumonia)

American Teen This documentary about a handful of high school seniors in Warsaw, Ind., shows how even teens who superficially fit the labels of jock and geek have inner lives and outer ambitions that break up any stereotypes. The movie has the sureness and nuance of a tiptop novel. PG-13 95 minutes A The Dark Knight Heath Ledger gives a bravura performance as the Joker in this handsome piece of work, but it takes you from absorption to excruciation within 20 minutes, and then goes on for two hours more.

The news yesterday that actor Heath Ledger died from a lethal combination of six different medications has raised new concerns about the hazards of overdoses among Americans with increasingly well-stocked medicine cabinets. The New York City medical examiner ruled yesterday that Ledger's death last month was accidental, the result of "acute intoxication" from two prescription painkillers (oxycodone and hydrocodone); two prescribed anti-anxiety drugs (diazepam and alprazolam); and two sleep aids - one of them available over the counter.

In Lasse Hallstrom's refreshingly uninhibited Casanova, the title character contends that he doesn't conquer women: He submits to them. You'll submit to the exuberance and ease of the director's take on the swashbuckling 18th-century free-thinker and hedonist. This merry, mercurial picture handles elaborate japes lightly. Exploiting Venice for all its voluptuary glory - Rome sees the city as a moral cesspit, libertines see it as a haven - the beautifully engineered farce depicts clashing notions of love and female destiny and the way false identities can spark genuine delights.
