Yes, it's true. Brad Renfro, child star from The Client, died yesterday at age 25. My guess is that it was a heroin overdose, but right now it's just being reported as "unknown causes." He had just finished shooting a movie with Winona Ryder called The Informers. IMDB gives the tagline from the movie:
Greed is good. Sex is easy. Youth is forever.
Ain't that the truth.
