They say he was "troubled" from a recent drug and alcohol addiction. They say he had a promising future to be a great actor, but the addictions got in the way. They also say he was on his way to recovery. I'm not sure what the entire story is with his addictions, or if they caused his death or not. He was found in his home Tuesday morning...gone. Reports are out that say he was out drinking with his friends the night before. Unless he had so much liquor that it caused alcohol poisoning, he passed another way. A bunch of young people go out drinking with their buddies. But anything is possible. The autopsy will be performed for clarity. Whatever ailed him however, is sad. He was young and trying to get clean.
Brad Renfro's film credits include: "The Client." His other credits included "Sleepers," "Deuces Wild," "Apt Pupil", "The Jacket" and "The Informers," a book made into a film, which he just completed opposite Winona Ryder.
Young Hollywood's obsession with drugs is scary. Yet it is not much unlike the rest of America's obsession with drugs. Expensive or cheap, they are being brought. Our prayers go out for the loved ones of Brad Renfro and for people that suffer in like ways as well. It's hard for those that get caught up.
