Actor Corey Haim Found Dead, Suspected Overdose

Eighties teen idol Corey Haim died Wednesday morning of an apparent drug overdose, according to Los Angeles police.

The Canadian-born actor, who starred in "The Lost Boys" but was probably best known for his roles with fellow actor Corey Feldman, was 38.

He was found unresponsive at his Oakwood apartment around 3:30 a.m.,according to KTLA-TV. His mother was at the apartment at the time of his death.

The actor, who has struggled with drug addiction, was pronounced dead at Providence St. Joseph's Medical Center in Burbank.

Police were called to the hospital just before 4 a.m. to investigate his death.

Police sources told CBS Haim's death appeared accidental. Haim has been in and out of rehab and starred in a reality show with Feldman in 2007 called "The Two Coreys."

He talked about his struggle with drugs - specificially prescription drugs.

"I started on the downers which were a hell of a lot better than the uppers because I was a nervous wreck. But one led to two, two led to four, four led to eight, until at the end it was about 85 a day - the doctors could not believe I was taking that much," he told a reporter in 2007.

"And that was just the Valium - I'm not talking about the other pills I went through."

Haim's official website was last updated on Jan. 18 and promotes his upcoming film, a thriller titled "American Sunset."

Re: Actor Corey Haim Found Dead, Suspected Overdose

So sad, I remember him from some of the 80's teen movies. It seems like most child stars from the 80's ended up with a substance abuse problem. RIP Corey!

RIP Corey .

He showed so much promise as a child/teen actor. It;s too bad drugs got in the way of his career. One of my fave Corey movies as a kid was License To Drive.

Re: Actor Corey Haim Found Dead, Suspected Overdose

You know, i was just taking a look at his Filmography on IMDB.com and was amazed at how many projects he'd just completed and had in the works. He even had a couple movies in pre-production that he was producing and directing. These films may not have been A-class films, but it seems he was heading in the right direction. Corey
