Corey Haim/Andrew Koenig Connection

3/11/2010 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In an ironic twist of fate, Corey Haim was fired from a movie in late 2008 because of an alleged drug issue -- a movie that also starred recently deceased actor Andrew Koenig.

Corey Haim/Andrew Koenig

Haim was cast as one of the leads in a movie called "DaZe." Executive producer Miller Uwanawich tells TMZ, "Corey's drug problem became too much of a problem" and he was fired as a result.

According to Miller, Corey would show up for table reads and be "all over the place, definitely showing signs of being on drugs."

Miller says he went to Corey's home a few times to try and help him with the apparent drug problem, but was unsuccessful. A.J. Llamas was recast in Corey's role.

It's also the last movie in which Andrew Koenig -- the "Growing Pains" star who committed suicide last month -- appeared.

Corey Feldman makes me sick. What a loser.......Now he comes forward and talked about a friend he dumped and discarded quite rudely at that, like he is so much better, gag me. AND Corey was not alone, he was with his mother

To #13 Suzy, I completely agree with you regarding child stars. I spoke to this man once who worked on a set with teenagers. He was telling me how people on the set were giving this teen the drugs and alcohol he wanted. I was surprised and responded with , "huh,what, why?"...He said a simple answer. The answer is that these child stars are the cash cow for that moment and they work crazy long hours. Give them what they want, what they need. As long as they work, the money comes in and everyone is satisfied. But yet, no one thinks about the future "mental" issues these child stars face. It seems like the child stars who grew up okay were the ones from the Cosby show. Bill Cosby laid a good foundation in their heads...but there is probably 1 or 2 rotten eggs...RIP to these two young men.

Google videos "The Two Coreys;the reconing" and you'll see their relationship dynamic.
Very dysfunctional and controlling.
Not at all like Feldman's assessment on Larry King where He blames everyone but himself.
It's creepy.
