It is sad.
A super talent.
He should have read the book"HOW TO HAVE FUN AND NOT DIE"
This book by Eddie Einbinder explains all types of drugs.
It is a book all about drugs and how to use them safely.
If you can't stop some one from using drugs, teach them how to be safe.

Trying to stop drug usage has not worked , so please try a different approach..

Drug use stops one way or the other. Either you're smart enough to stop killing yourself, or you kill yourself. The only problem is that, in the latter case, you probably take a few people with you.

Everyone has their demons, unfortunately he lost his life to his...his family and friends also lost him to his demons.... the movie industry lost an excellent actor ... people are so fast to judge, they seem to forget that they are not perfect.....they seem to think they have no demons....they need to know, they are wrong.

The sad part of this is he will be elevated to Saint because he died. HE KILLED HIMSELF WITH HEROINE and there were allegedly 50 + more packets according to a CNN report. He as other drug addicts had one thing and one thing only in mind. He got more than he bargained for and his pilot light went out. He was 3 hours late for picking up his kids...so Dad of the year was shooting heroine just prior to seeing his kids. THIS IS NOT A HERO FOLKS. Keep it in perspective. It is a sad waste of life but should be a wake up call for anyone and everyone.

The death of anyone is tragic to those who love them no matter their station in life or matter what the circumstance. In this case a talented actor who had so much to give fell to a demon that even he couldn't shake. Let us applaud his accomplishments and his craft while we hope this senseless death can serve as a warning beacon to those in similar circumstance.

It was written that he was 3 hours late in picking up his kids, that is how his friend found him dead. What kind of wife/ex wife would her kids go to a KNOWN drug addict? God! Everyone wants a ride on the cash cow. Hollywood needs to stop enabling . He may have been a talented actor, but in the end, he is as dead as the next drug addict.

To Subuistar: Ditto..i concure with you coments, shame on anyone who has been given so much and had so much to live for not to mention the responsability he has to a family. The time self indulgence was long past for him, falling off the wagon should have benn a Que, and alert or something to him to get help before .....now it's to late.

I guess we'll find out if he got ahold of lethal H containing the pain killing drug that's taking unsuspecting lives on the street. THIS is what should send everybody dealing with this type of demon into some kind of treatment program. Funded or otherwise. YOU don't know what you've gotten your hands on. I know someone who years ago was given a "harmless joint" . Unbeknownst to him, it contained PCP. The paranoia and hallucinations went on for hours. It only took two hits before it hit. Death wish .... will be when a person shows up in an emergency room and the doctors don't know where to begin. Brillant actor - yet selfish (ask his children) man.

That's the definition of people who ingest substances they haven't identified. Dead.
