Brad Renfro

Born: 1982-07-25 - Died: 2008-01-14
Cause of Death:
Drug Overdose

Death Summary: Renfro died at the age of 25 from an apparently accidental overdose on heroin/morphine. His body was found in his apartment in Los Angeles.

Less than 2 weeks later, his grandmother who had raised him was found dead from natural causes.

Who was Brad Renfro : Brad Renfro was a young actor who had appeared in mostly independent films.

Perhaps most famously, he was the kid in the film version of John Grisham's The Client, and later went on to appear in such films as Apt Pupil (based on the Stephen King novella), Bully, Ghost World, and Deuces Wild.

His last role was in the film adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, Rules of Attraction) novel The Informers. It had not yet been released at the time of his death.

There was a bit of controversy when Renfro was not mentioned in the annual Acedemy Award Memorial montage, but he was absent from it because he was apparently not a member of the academy.

  17. joseph mengele Says:

    brad and i would play nazi games after he did apt pupil. often in the wee hours of the night he would shit in my hat and scream at me. sadly he became a fat slob resembling more of goreing than the gorbels. he was a disgrace to mankind and a shitty actor. but in the end he made a decent gay nazi sadist scat loving friend. i will miss him deficating on the floor with a needle hanging out of his arm. up his ass i say as he would have wanted it. to dumb to even untie a boat before trying to steal it. i believe he also like hot wax shot in his bloated anus. a true friend to none and role modle to even less. rot in hell fuckface!!

  18. Babycakes Says:

    I am ready to tell my secret about how Brad loved my 10 inch role of tar paper slapping off his face. We often met in his car or at a Motel 6 near his home. Brad was a bully but he was also a great lover. He enjoyed giving my beautiful black man hole a cream pie. I know how much he enjoyed just watching his load drip out of me. He had a decent cock for a white boy and was fairly strong and would often hold my head on his penis until I choked on it. I miss the taste of him after he would pee in the bathtub and look at me. It has taken me years to admit this to anyone I am married and want to stay that way. Brad was not a bad guy just messed up. Good Bye BR

  19. Deanna Berousek Says:

    One of my favorite actors, you will be surley missed. I know you would have gone on to do great things. Gone way too soon.

  20. Luis Filipe Says:

  22. RJ Says:


    Just saw the Informers. Enjoyed your compelling & memorable performance (saw your tribute in the credits). I didn’t know previously that you had passed-on.

    Looks like another unfortunate victim of Holly-weird.


    Vaya con Dios.

    joseph mengele, the fact that you took your time to write that stuff and disrespect the deceased two years after his death, shows what a stupid and incompetant idiot you are. I feel sorry for your parents. They can’t be to proud. Rest in Peace Brad, We All Love Ya!

  36. lilly Says:

    I was heartbroken when I found out you died. I loved watching your films the apt pupil was my favorite. I’m sad that you never got to show how talented you had, I always thought you were the best actor id ever seen. You were my first crush. I’m sorry that things ended for you the way they did. Goodbye, I will never forget you and I will always watch your movies and be so impressed by you. XOXO

  37. Pissin Boyz Says:

    I gave him a rimjob on the set of apt pupil. he was not a hairy man. Smelled vaguely of cabbage.

  38. Floyd Says:

    I just took a deuces wild ten minutes ago. We needed a screwdriver to mash it up. What a wild duece it was. Thanks for the idea.

  39. Mickel Says:

    Would like to hear this power amp with a lower gain, classic Marshall style tone. With that much gain, it just sodnus more like a processor and hard to hear the nuance. Just a thought. Thanks man!
