The news just came in: Brad Renfro has died. At the age of 25. Very sad. On the IMDB obit, it's mentioned that one of his last performances was on "Law and Order: Criminal Intent", and i feel terrible, because i saw that episode, and noticed how poor Brad Renfro and also Ethan Embry looked so terrible, so bloated and blurry. Renfro in particular seemed barely conscious, his eyes could hardly focus.

Very sad.

Just a note that while Brad Renfro has become another Hollywood casualty, another child star who couldn't handle the pressure, it was also Margaret O'Brien's birthday: she's 71 today.
