The "Smoking" Casting Director    

I was actually smoking a Parliament Ultra light, while interviewing Corey on my very plush balcony. All in good fun of course!! While I appreciate the shout out, lets not forget the inevitable genius of bringing back The Corey's! I am also a product of the 80's! And Bai... What can I say, she may not know how to dress or carry a tune but she is a stellar actress!!

PS. Why no mention of those wacky gals that put Brittney S on MOTHER??

The "Wacky Gals"    

We find it interesting that the "Smoking" Casting Director (shouldn't you be smoking CRANK) has nothing better to do than bring up SUPERSTAR Britney Spears doing HIMYM.... Funny enough you are the only one that actually took that joke of a page he took out in Variety seriously!!!!

Citizens for the Resurrection of Fallen Stars    

I take umbrage to all the previous commentary about young Corey Haim, who brought us so much joy and laughter during the very difficult time that was the first half of the 80's. Let us not forget his poignant turns in 'Lucas', 'Silver Bullet' and 'Dream a Little Dream' - an underrated classic. Casting him was an act not only of genius but of kindness and appreciation for someone who gave so much to us only to lose it all through some very poor decisions. Whatever was being smoked...clearly did a world of good. As for Ms. Spears, her turn on 'Mother' was the most together and coherent we've seen her in a long time, and she was most assuredly wearing underwear, so we have the Wacky Girls to thank for that. These damaged souls need our love and support, not wanton insults and condemnation.

why?    

WHEN I WAS A GIRL, I THOUGHT HE WAS SO HOT. WHAT A WASTE DRUGS MADE OUT OF HIM. HE LITERALLY WAS AT THE TOP OF HIS GAME IN THE 80'S, AND COULD HAVE BEEN A "DI CAPRIO". HIS PARENTS SHOULD HAVE LET HIM HAVE A NORMAL CHILDHOOD, AND SAVED STARDOM UNTIL HE FINISHED SCHOOL. THESE YOUNG STARS GET TOO MUCH TOO SOON, AND HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE UP AGAINST. PEOPLE ARE IN THEIR FACES TELLING THEM HOW WONDERFUL THEY ARE, AND DROP THEM AS SOON AS THEIR MINUTES RUN UP. LET THIS POOR MAN'S LIFE BE A LESSON TO ALLYOUNG PEOPLE TRYING TO BE STARS.

As an 80' child who grew up loving the fims and actors of that time, i find it sad to see a person who was once a great child actor stll acting very much like a child.

He seemed so pleased to see the camra and acted almost giddy. I am sure he is doing better than he was in recent times, but he obviously still has someway to go. I for one hope he moves forward and does well again and that he does not find himself being used by people within the industry because of his childlike behaviour.

It really is as if he is still living back in the day.
