COREY DEAD: ‘Lost Boys’ actor Haim dies of apparent overdose

BURBANK, Calif. — The Los Angeles coroner's office says "The Lost Boys" actor Corey Haim is dead at 38.

Coroner's Lt. Cheryl MacWillie said Wednesday that Haim died at 2:15 a.m. at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank from an apparent drug overdose. She said an autopsy will determine the official cause of death and there are no other details.

Canadian-born Haim became a teen heartthrob with the 1986 film "Lucas" and 1987's "The Lost Boys."

His first role was in the 1984 hit "Firstborn," in which he played a young child caught up in a family war. He then appeared in the 1985 television movie "A Time to Live."

In recent years, he appeared in the A&E; reality TV show "The Two Coreys" with his friend Corey Feldman. It was canceled in 2008 after two seasons.
