Slow Adventures in Slothville

Bye Bye Brad Renfro

Filed under: Celebrity Whoredom — shhville @ 3:35 pm

Two nights ago I was watching Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines on cable and musing that somebody had to have blown somebody who blew the casting director for that hot mess because oh my god, how unattractive is Nick Stahl? I think he’s incredibly talented, but that movie doesn’t call for talent, it calls for hotness and Nick Stahl looks like a skinny monkey with a hormone problem.

Can you see him in a liplock with Claire Danes? NONONONONONO.

So, anyway, I was pondering that, and then I switched over to IFC and saw that there was another movie on starring Nick Stahl called Bully.

Ok, if you haven’t seen this movie I do recommend it, but be aware that there is a lot of disturbing sex and vapidness and killing. It leaves you feeling profoundly demoralized. But it’s excellent and Nick Stahl rocks his part and I even though I was squirming and always on the verge of changing the channel because it got to be a bit much at parts, I watched the whole thing and loved it.

One of Nick’s costars in that movie is Brad Renfro who I started obsessing over because I was trying to figure out where I’d seen him before. About halfway through I remembered that he was one of the killers in the Law and Order: CI episode “Watch” that heralded the return of Ethan Embry and his remarkable transformation from hot supernerd to scary balding (but still pretty hot) thug.

Before:

After:

So I was all proud of myself for remembering where I’d seen Brad Renfro before and also swooning from his hotness while I googled the hell out of him on the internets.

I mean YUM, right?

Even his mugshot was hot:

Yummana!!

So, that’s why I’ve been thinking about Brad Renfro lately. And then I got to work this morning and found out that he died last night. He was 25.

RIP, Brad. You’ll be sorely missed.
