Corey Haim, 1971-2010

Corey Haim, the former child actor best known for his role in The Lost Boys, died last night of an apparent drug overdose, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. He was 38.

Corey Haim shot to stardom in the 1980s, along with a group of teen heartthrobs that included his Lost Boys co-star Corey Feldman. (Indeed, Feldman and Haim were the original Team Edward/Team Jacob, to those of us who came of age in the 1980s) Their shared first name, and repeated collaborations culminated in the AMC series ‘The Two Coreys’ in 2007.

Haim also starred in Lucas, Dream a Little Dream, and my personal favorite License to Drive.

He is survived by his mother, Judy, his father, Bernie, and a sister, Carol.
