Rest In Peace Brad

The acting world lost a great young talent today when actor Brad Renfro passed away at the age of 25. The star of such movies as The Client, The Cure (one of my favorite movies), Apt Pupil, Deuces Wild, and Bully (another fave) was found dead in his Los Angeles home at 9 am this morning. There have been no details as to the cause of death yet but speculation was quick to jump to his troubles with drug and alcohol addiction. He had reportedly been attempting to get clean and sober for the past year after a judge ordered him into a drug rehabilitation program following an attempt to buy heroin and recently finished a movie with Winona Ryder and Billy Bob Thornton called The Informers. I'm personally upset by this news because he was one of my favorite actors. Why do the talented ones always die so young?

Rest In Peace Brad.
