Corey Haim (1971-2010)

From KABC in Los Angeles:

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Actor Corey Haim died at the age of 38 early Wednesday morning.

According to the LAPD, Haim had been staying with his mother in North Hollywood, and the death appears to have been accidental. Haim was taken to St. Joseph's hospital in Burbank, and the hospital called LAPD at 3:40 a.m. to notify them that Haim had died of an apparent overdose.

Haim broke into the film industry in 1984 as a child actor. He starred in movies such as "Lucas" with Charlie Sheen, but his breakthrough role came with his 1987 film "Lost Boys."


Here's the story from the Associated Press and from omg! yahoo.

I never like to hear of someone younger than myself die. That's just weird to me.

If Corey Haim did indeed die of a drug overdose, I would not be surprised, since he is/was an admitted drug user. As I read elsewhere, an autopsy will be performed to determine the actual cause of death. We'll see in a few weeks what the official word is.

I will say that I absolutely loved The Lost Boys which came out in 1987. It is a vampire movie that came out in the era before vampire movies were in vogue.

I was surprised to see on his IMDb page that he had been working regularly, where I had thought his career flamed out in the 1990's as many child stars careers seem to do.
