Brad Renfro, who made a killer movie debut in Joel Schumacher's The Client at age 10, was found dead yesterday at age 25.

What a fucking shame.

The police didn't say what killed Renfro, but he had gone to rehab before for drug and alcohol addiction.

I can't say I was a huge Renfro fan over the years, but I admired his performances in The Client and Sleepers.

The Tennessee native's credits include Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Ghost World, The Jacket, Sleepers, 10th and Wolf, Tom and Huck and The Cure.

Young people dying for no good reason sucks.
