Biography

After a meteoric rise to the top after only a few film and television roles, actor Corey Haim's once-promising career crashed and burned amidst a long struggle with drugs, leaving behind yet another tragic tale of troubled child stars succumbing to their demons after falling out of favor in the fickle business of Hollywood. Though he had his start on Canadian television, Haim made his breakthrough with an award-worthy performance as the bespectacled, bug-collecting kid in the refreshing teen comedy, "Lucas" (1986). The next year, Haim reached the height of his career with a starring role in the Gen-X hit, "The Lost Boys" (1987), immediately joining Corey Feldman - later dubbed "The Coreys" - as one of the most popular teen stars of his time. Though he and Feldman had further success with the teen comedies "License to Drive" (1988) and "Dream a Little Dream (1989), Haim never again recaptured his fleeting glory. Just as fast as his rise, Haim plunged back down into eventual obscurity, thanks to an overindulgence in drugs and a long, steady stream of forgettable direct-to-video movies. Following a short stint with sobriety in the mid-2000s and an attempted comeback alongside Feldman with the sometimes disturbing reality show "The Two Coreys" (A&E, 2007-08), Haim seemed destined to remain yet another forgotten former child star. Though he continued to churn out straight-to-video movies both in the U.S. and his native Canada, he also began gaining a foothold back in the legitimate film business by landing roles in bigger budget films like "Crank: High Voltage" (2009) with Jason Statham and in indies like "American Sunset" (2010) and "Shark City" (2009). Though he had long been the Hollywood posterboy for career downfalls, many were still shocked and saddened at Haim's untimely end on March 10, 2010, just as it appeared the actor was making his long wished for comeback.
