2010-03-10-corey_haimFormer teen star Corey Haim died this morning in Los Angeles of an accidental overdose. He was 38.

the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the actor’s death to TV station KTLA. He was found unresponsive in his apartment at around 3:30 am and was later pronounced dead at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank.

The Canadian actor is best known for his childhood starring roles against onscreen buddy Corey Feldman in the 1980s in License to Drive and The Lost Boys, movies that quickly led to his teen idol status. While the 80s brought great success for Haim, the following decade did not follow suit. Haim’s roles consisted mostly of direct-to-video flops and the actor struggled to get back his once successful career while dealing with bankruptcy, drug dependency, and stints in rehab.

In 2007, Haim once again teamed up with Feldman for the well-received TV reality series The Two Coreys, where a troubled Haim was shown living with Feldman and his wife. The series ended in mid-2008 during its second season, with Feldman citing Haim’s addiction as the cause. Haim also played a small part in Lost Boys: The Tribe, in which Feldman also starred, both actors reprising their roles from The Lost Boys.

  1. It’s a sad day. Being a GenXr and growing up watching their movies it kinda hits home. The Lost Boys was and remains to be THE best modern vampire movie, (sorry Twilight fans). The Lost Boys defined the outcast 80’s generation. Even though the Tribe totally sucked (on which Haim and Feldman agreed that it sucked) there was the one straw of hope that the franchise could have been saved with a third movie. SPOILER: As Haim stepped out of a shadow in a dimly lit cave, Sam had become a vampire, and I wanted to see them go head to head in a third movie. Sadly this will never happen.
    Haim had been struggling with addiction in the reality show “The Two Coreys”. Feldman was doing his best to help his old friend despite his wife not happy with the fact that Haim was staying with them. I wish things were different.
    RIP Corey, you helped define a generation, and you will live on.
