Haim is most famous for his roles in the 1980s films “License To Drive” and “The Lost Boys.” Haim and actor Corey Feldman starred in several popular films together, including “License To Drive” and “Dream a Little Dream,” and became one of the hottest young actor teams in Hollywood.

Haim’s drug use took over his life, however, and helped ruin his career.

After starring in several direct-to-video films in the 1990s, Haim made a comeback in 2006 in the reality series “The Two Coreys” with Corey Feldman.

The successful show lasted two seasons, but Feldman said he refused to do a third season because of Haim’s continued drug use.

Haim was involved in several projects at the time of his death, including the film “The Science of Cool” with actress Mischa Barton, due out in 2010, and “The Dead Sea,” which is currently filming.
