The time finally draws near where we as movie-lovers can pay our final respects to Heath Ledger by watching his last performance in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. Check out a clip from that role right here. As we’ve all heard, he was in the middle of filming it when he passed away, and Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell stepped in to save the project.

Christopher Plummer stars as Dr. Parnassus, a man who has the unique gift of guiding imagination with his traveling show, of which Ledger is a major player – and he is also a man who owes the Devil himself (Tom Waits) his first born daughter Valentina (Lily Cole) when she turns 16. But Parnassus has a plan to cheat the Devil out of that soul…
