CNN is reporting that actor Corey Haim, the teen idol best known for his role opposite Corey Feldman in the ’80s vampire flick The Lost Boys, died of a possible drug overdose Wednesday morning after being taken to Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, California. He was pronounced dead at 3:30 a.m. at the age of 38, police said.
Haim and Feldman — appeared in eight movies together — both struggled with drug abuse and went their separate ways in later years. They reunited for reality show “The Two Coreys,” in 2007, but A&E Network canceled the program after slightly more than a year.
On “Larry King Live” in 2007, Haim discussed his battle with drugs and called himself “a chronic relapser for the rest of my life. I think I have an addiction to pretty much everything. I mean, I have to be very careful with myself as far as that goes, which is why I have a support group around me consistently.”
Haim was born December 23, 1971 in Toronto, Ontario.
