Ellen DeGeneres took a moment at the end of her talk show Wednesday to remember Heath Ledger in a touching –and humorous – tribute. Calling the actor an “amazing, amazing, talented young man,” DeGeneres said, “He was a friend – and we will miss him,” before running this clip from his last appearance on her show, on Feb. 13, 2006. In the segment, Ledger and DeGeneres go on a bobsled “ride” in front of a green screen, dodging flying objects and clowning around. After the clip, DeGeneres signed off with a quiet wave.
