Brad Renfro
Height of fame: Renfro seemed to be everywhere as a kid actor during the '90s. His career started as a 10-year-old in The Client, and Renfro's career grew from there. He was always in major films like Sleepers and Apt Pupil, but as he got older, his tastes tended towards more independent fare like Ghost World and Bully.
Now: Renfro died of a heroin overdose at age 25 in 2008. Early success led him to a life of fun and drugs. He was arrested many times, including once for trying to steal a yacht with a friend. He was arrested for drug possession the most and ended up on Skid Row in 2005. He was an exceptional young talent who ended up being another cautionary tale.
