Brad Renfro

Mark just got me out of bed to tell me that Brad Renfro died. I'm a little stunned, but sadly, not surprised. He led a pretty troubled life. But even still, what a fucking shame. 25 years old.

I've had an actor crush on Brad Renfro since his early days. From The Client, Apt Pupil to Bully, Ghost World to the recent Law and Order episode. I even tried to get the JOB script to him at one point. It all just breaks my heart. The kid was crazy special.

There's just no excuse for someone so young.
