He’s gone out for the football team

It is with sadness that we note the death of actor Corey Haim, who never seemed to escape the glorious 1980s when he was a Tiger Beat pin-up at the top of every tween girl’s list. He had a string of classic successes: Lucas, The Lost Boys, License to Drive, Prayer of the Rollerboys. But by the 1990s he entered the realm of straight-to-video — a world where it’s still possible to make money to support the lifestyle he chose, but not the reputation. In the first decade of the 21st century, he fell further still: an episode of E! True Hollywood Story and the car-wreck level reality series The Two Coreys, in which his friend Corey Feldman tried to straighten him up with apparently little success. Haim was 38 years old.

We have a biography available on Haim in Biography Resource Center from the series Contemporary Theatre, Film and Television.
