Brad Renfro, kid from 'The Client', dead at 25



Tbdbradrenfro011708 Brad Renfro, the kid actor who starred as the endangered 12-year-old in The Client, was found dead Tuesday in his L.A. home, the AP reports. He was 25.

There was no word on the cause of death, but seeing as how he'd been struggling with drugs and alcohol since coming to La-La-Land, it's a pretty good bet there was a foreign substance involved. He served 10 days in in jail May 2006 afer pleading no contest to driving while intoxicated and guilty to attempted possession of heroin.

He also starred in Sleepers, Deuces Wild, Apt Pupil and The Jacket, which should have given some indication of his downward spiral.
