I'm sad to hear he lost his battle with drug addiction, if it is what is being reported.

Its unfortunate, but I barbtoob, I think drug addiction just doesn't effect our generation. It effects all generations. My grandparent's generations, they died of drug overdoses too. Its a personality and probably a genetic issue. Some people's personality and maybe genetic makeup are more prone to addiction than others.

There is problem with the expectations of that generation . . . my generation . . . so sad :fragile:

Yep. I said to a friend just the other day that they should change our name from Generation X to Generation Effed.

So sad.

License to Drive is one of my fave movies.

sad. and totally not unexpected, which to me sort of makes it sadder. if even non-famous people sort of saw this one coming, you would think someone out there would have tried to reach out to him. maybe they did though, who knows?

I watched a few episodes of "The Two Corey's" where he was living with Corey Feldman and his wife, and it seemed like Feldman did plenty of reaching out. The unfortunate thing is that you can't help someone who doesn't want to be helped.

It was sadly inevitable. I wonder if the Oscars will snub him too. RIP Corey, I had a monster crush on you when I was 12. :(

I'm sad to hear this. I knew he was a child actor but only saw him on "Thirtysomething" where he played Melissa's younger (but adult) boyfriend.

Such a well-made movie. I can watch it over and over.

I couldn't even watch that Two Coreys. The clips I saw just looked too tragic.

Poor Corey. Such a sad life :(

ITA. There were just different drugs, and also there wasn't the same help/recognition for addiction problems that there is now (and while that isn't even close to being enough, at least it exists). So in some ways things were even worse.

I'm pretty sure that was Corey Parker, no?

The name is familiar but those movie titles and shows don't ring a bell. But then again I wasn't in the country in the 80s. Anything that he'd done in the 90s that was famous?
