Nine years ago he was nominated for a Best Actor in a Leading Role at the Australian Film Institute (AFI) Awards for his work as a naïve young wannabe gangster in Two Hands. Have a look at this clip -


Two Hands from wallyworld on Vimeo.

Wikipedia says
As of October 2008, Ledger was listed as one of the world's highest-earning deceased celebrities, at USD $20 million, ranking third behind Elvis Presley and Charles M. Schulz.

Two more clips from Two Hands are available here at the excellent Australian Screen site You can also see Bryan Brown - another Australian actor that cracked Hollywood albeit in some stinkers like Cocktail with that short-arsed dope from the Scientologists.
