R.I.P. Brad Renfro

Before I go any further let me refresh your memory on who Brad Renfro is, 'cause I'm sure you're scratching your head, going huh? (it's ok I'm guilty of that too).

Brad Renfro is the child actor who played the character of Mark Sway in the 1994 Susan Sarandon, Tommy Lee Jones flick called "The Client". One of my absolute faves. And pretty much his only hit.

I always find it sad how all the child actors seem to die either from an alcohol or drug overdose (although that has not been determined in this case as of yet).

No matter how many times this happens I'm always shocked at how young they are. This guy was only 25. It's a real shame. I choose to remember him as the spunky 12 year old who mouthed off to Susan Sarandon.
