Corey Haim

RIP - 1971 - 2010

Sad news. Fox affiliate KTLA is reporting that actor Corey Haim was found dead this morning of an apparent drug overdose.

Corey found success playing sometimes geeky characters in such movies as Lucas in the movie of the same name and Les Anderson in License to Drive.

His biggest success came when paired with his friend Corey Feldman in Joel Schumacher’s The Lost Boys.

He spiraled into drug addiction during the 1990s, working to rebuild his life and career over the last few years.  IMDB lists several projects as being in pre-production or currently filming.

He was apparently suffering from the flu and collapsed in front of his mother, who called the paramedics.  He was pronounced dead at 2:15 am after being transported to Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center.

Sad, sad, sad.

While it’s The Lost Boys that Corey will be remembered for…

…my favorite of his movies was the quieter, sweeter Lucas:
