Yes Tim, I saw on TV tonight that he had died, didn't know who he was, but I felt that it is truly a tragedy to see a 25 year old man dying of course.  Sometimes if a person just makes it past a certain point of bottoming out and survives that he or she could live a long and productive life and find the happiness and joy life can bring, even with all its ups and downs.

So sorry to hear this.

It's always sad when someone so young dies.  I can guess if he was drinking heavily, it was probably related to that and whatever else it was he ingested.  Sad, terribly sad. :-\

Damn, he was a good actor.  Bully was an awesome movie.  Drugs and alcohol are just too tempting when you're young and rich with nothing but time to kill.

What a waste!   Such a shame, I enjoyed him in the Grisham story "The Client" with Susan Sarandon....I thought he did a great job.

RIP Brad
