Corey Haim, star of Lucas, the Lost Boys, and most recently the Two Corey’s, has been declared dead in a Burbank hospital at age 38, according to the TVGuide article I read. Haim is best known for his collaborations with fellow actor Corey Feldman, who appeared together in such movies as the Lost Boys, License to Drive, and Dream a Little Dream. Haim struggled with substance abuse, however a cause of death has not been determined.
I am very saddened by this. Lucas is one of my all time favorites, and he was great in the role. Same can be said for the Lost Boys, which showcased his natural charm. My condolences to his friends and family.
Update: EW is reporting that Haim died of an accidental overdose.
