According to multiple sources, actor and 80's teen movie icon Corey Haim has died of an accidental overdose.
Haim was known mostly for movies such as The Lost Boys and License to Drive and for his early "bromance" with License co-star Corey Feldman ("The Coreys"). Unfortunately, like too many 80's child actors, his early success did not transfer well into adulthood. He did plenty of work, but most projects did not have the same impact as his earlier ones.
According to his IMDb profile, he had a series of projects either in production, completed, and had been rumored to have started a couple more. No doubt, these will get some attention as they are released.
Haim admitted to drug use for most of his professional life, and he never seemed to be able to overcome addiction for long. It's a sad commentary on Hollywood that too many people like him slip through the cracks and don't always get the help they need.
See you on the other side, Corey. Thank you for being who you were in the body. Your spirit is now free to go to its next adventure.
