It is very sad to hear what has happened to an actor who had promising career, but ended up on the wrong path. Renfro's death (only 25) should be a huge wake-up call to the rest of young Hollywood that it is time to clean up the behavior and actions of some of these young starlets (Britney, Lindsay, etc.) before anything else happens to them. It is time for someone to take a stand so that their lives can be saved so that they do not suffer a fate such as what happened to Brad Renfro.

I've never heard of this guy until now. That is sad for him to die at the young age of 25. Drugs are dangerous things.

Shaun seems to assume, as most of us, that dying young and from drugs is "the wrong path". But is the alternative (dying old and sick) more attractive? We are a few not to be convinced.
Brad Renfro is not the sad one now, not anymore I'll add, for having had the honor to meet him a long time ago. The ones who are sad are you and me, and all those who liked or loved him; and I'd add that we all are selfishly sad.

Way to go Brad, I hope you will have more of a blast in your new universe than in the tight one you had to inhabit until yesterday.

It was "Apt Pupil." Not Art Pupil. Someone said dying young from drugs is better than dying old? They are sickos too. Trying to justify their addictions, I assume. I lost my friend in Hollywood. He died at 33. He was schizophrenic and manic depressive from drug abuse. He stabbed someone when he was on crystal meth and died in prison. He was a good worker, until the drugs got to him. He had a whole lifetime to live and he wanted to live, but failed or denied his medication in prison. River Phoenix, Heath Ledger, whose next? The music industry has lost hunbdreds because of drugs. Well, if this is your choice go to it. I will be 70 in two days and still enjoying my life.

It was APT PUPIL not Art Pupil. Someone said it was better to die young from drugs than to live old and die. Well, to me that is not living. There is a whole world of adventure here on Earth. I lost a friend who was 33, who died in Hollywood from drugs. He became schizophrenic and manic depressive. While on crystal meth he stabbed someone. He ended up in prison and died there last year. He refused his medication. After his drug abuse, he denied medication? Prisons are full of persons who committed crimes on meth. Wise up you stupid asses. River Phoenix, died from drugs and almost forgotten. And Heath Ledger being the latest. There will be more I am sure. I will be 70 in two days and enjoy my life. Everyday is an adventure and learning experience. Preston Brown is gone, but not forgotten.

I was watching a movie today called "The Job" Brad was in it. In one scene a guy was going to buy drugs from him and Brad had a sick amount to unload. The guy being a cocky SOB offered Brad's charactor a pretty low price for the 20 kilo's. Brad didn't like the offer. The Rich SOB said to him "I don't care, do it all, OD and die"

Well, it was pretty eerie considering that's what really happened to Brad. It is very sad. They don't realize that you could be happy without drugs. I had a similar problem with alcohol and now love life better without it. It was no picnic, but I am alive.

From my understanding, he was offered help. Looks like he made the decision to self-sabotage. Very sad.
