    Default Actor Brad Renfro Dead...

    Troubled actor Brad Renfro dies at 25

    Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES - Brad Renfro, the young actor whose film career began at age 12 with "The Client" before dissolving as he struggled with drug and alcohol problems, has died. He was 25.

    His body was found in his Los Angeles home early Tuesday, his lawyer Richard Kaplan said. The cause of death was not immediately known.

    Renfro served 10 days in jail in May 2006 after pleading no contest to driving while intoxicated and pleading guilty to attempted possession of heroin.

    He starred opposite Susan Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones in "The Client." His other credits include "Ghost World" and "The Jacket."

Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I just remember him from The Client. He was pretty good in that movie. Too bad he couldn't get it together to clean up.

    RIP.

    He showed a lot of promise in "The Client", but he apparently had issues that held him back.

    I wonder how long it will be before we see Britney Spears name in a thread like this?
