I must admit that I wasn't shocked to hear that Cory Haim died on Wednesday, but it still makes me sad.
I worked on a Cory Haim film in the mid 90s--Fast Getaway II--which starred Cory, Sarah Buxton, Leo Rossi, and Cynthia Rothrock.
Here's me dropping a pancake that Cory was supposed to have flipped onto Sarah's head in one scene (ah, the magic of Hollywood... well, or in this case Tucson, AZ):
I actually ran into Cory again, years later, randomly at a comic convention in Northern California. I was shocked that he actually remembered me. He said he wanted to hang out again. Asked me if I had a room in the hotel. Maybe we could play some video games. His handler, a severe Russian woman, wasn't having it. It freaked me out, but I remember feeling that sadness again. Poor kid.
Those 2 words really sum it up for me. Poor kid.
