The former teen idol was known for his roles in 1980s classics 'The Lost Boys,' 'Lucas' and 'License to Drive' and for his recent reality TV comeback, 'The Two Coreys,' in which he starred with Corey Feldman.
Canadian-born Haim's breakout role was in the critically acclaimed 1986 film 'Lucas,' where he played a nerdy and skinny student looking to prove himself on a high school football team. He later went on to star in major commercial hits like the vampire movie 'The Lost Boys,' 'License to Drive' and 'Dream a Little Dream,' all of which co-starred his then-partner in crime -- or in movies, anyway -- Feldman.
Haim has admitted to struggling with drug addiction. When his career faltered, he filed for bankruptcy and made several trips to rehab. The actor has admitted to abusing alcohol, cocaine, Valium and other pills. In recent years, he had been attempting to make a comeback, appearing in last year's 'Crank: High Voltage' and signing onto a number of indie film projects.
