The star of “Apt Pupil,” and one of my personal favorites, “Ghostworld,” Brad Renfro, was found dead in his home in Los Angeles this morning. This news comes after the 25-year-old had just recently finished filming “The Informers,” which also co-starred Billy Bob Thornton and Winona Ryder.
According to TMZ, Renfro had been battling substance abuse, with a number of drug convictions under his belt, and was going through an especially difficult time recently, in the wake of his parents’ divorce. The cause of death has not yet been established.
