No surprise here, using drugs and doing crime his whole life, just because he was in movies doesnt mean he wont go the same path as so many young men who die early. RIP

as long as the hollywood "left" treats these actors (and I use the word loosely) like some kind of god, they feel they can do whatever they want, whenever they want. in this case, another idiot gone. WHO CARES???????

Another example of why this country, with unparalleled wealth, is one of the most morally bankrupt nations on the planet.

Renfro may have circled the drain for the last time but this once-great country continues the spiral...

such a great actor. it is so sad to see such a promising young life be taken by addiction. brad, may you now be free and may your death not be in vain but give others the strength to get clean. may you have angel wings and sit on the shoulders of the sick encouraging them along. recovery works, but sadly, not for all. god bless.

Good catch! What's that saying about throwing stones from a glass house??:-)

But on the original subject; someone should be saddened about the loss of life. This young man was really good in "The Client". Reminded me of a young Kurt Russell. The account that I read said that he had been off the drugs for a while, but still battled the urge and this was compounded with depression.

The "beautiful people" don't all seem all that "beuatiful" as you read almost daily of one after another proving that they are all too human. The gorgeous bodies of the sexy young women look pretty ordinary when you shed them of all the hair styles, and thick makeup. Candid photos of actors and actreses when they aren't all "made up" look just like you and me. It is time to stop putting these phonies on some high alter of adoration and realize they have all got feet of clay and their poop is brown and smells just as highly as our own.

God, I hope Britney is next. She's surprised me with how long she's hung around without doing herself in with an overdose. She must be the world's luckiest disgraceful loser ever! How she manages to survive, I can't figure out.
I am SO SICK of these talented, successful, rich people being soooooo distraught and depressed when they have EVERYTHING GOING FOR THEM THAT WE NORMAL WORKADAY JOES DO NOT, and still they turn to drugs. What's so hard about facing life when you don't have to worry about your bills getting paid, or your health care, and your car is brand new and reliable, and your house is in your name?
Anyone who has it all, yet still does drugs and phukks up their life deserves to die in the gutter. So many other people tough it out day by day and never have all that money to make things easier.
Goes to show you that money can't buy you happiness or brains.
