Brad Renfro dead at 25

Brad RenfroActor Brad Renfro, who first starred in Joel Schumacher’s The Client when he was 10 years old, was found dead at his home in Los Angeles Tuesday morning. He’d worked steadily over the years in films such as Tom and Huck, Ghost World and 10th & Wolf, but battled drug and alcohol problems since he was in his early teens. Renfro was also in and out of trouble with the law — for underage drinking, DUI and at one point, for stealing a yacht. Last fall he completed a role in the film The Informers, alongside Billy Bob Thornton, Winona Ryder and Kim Basinger. The cause of death has not yet been determined.

    Cause of death is likely an overdose. Or maybe even suicide. This is very sad. But lots of us had been predicting this. What a waste.

    But… no one here remebers him on his work for “Death in the Mirror”?
    He was one of the heading minds of Spallanzani!
