Corey Feldman talks Haim with Larry King

BY SEAN O’CONNELL

Upon hearing that Corey Haim had passed away Wednesday morning, many probably though, “I wonder what Corey Feldman thinks of this?” Wednesday night, we found out. Feldman, who co-starred alongside Haim in several films and a short-lived reality television program, appeared on “Larry King Live” last night to discuss Haim’s death. The actor said he was “in shock” over the news because when he last saw Haim a few days prior, his friend “was fine.” “He was actually giving me some advice about something I was very upset about,” Feldman said. “He was being very positive.”

Feldman would not confirm reports that Haim died of a drug overdose, saying, “Until the coroner’s report comes out and until we get specific evidence and until we know exactly what the toxicology report says, nobody knows [anything], and nobody is going to know. “We are aware of the fact that Corey Haim has a long and detailed drug history and battled addiction for many, many years,” Feldman continued. “I know it better than anybody, because I’ve been the guy stuffing charcoal down his throat when he was [OD’ing]. I’ve been the guy trying to make him stand up or say a complete sentence. I’ve been through it with him many, many times, and it’s happened very badly and very intensely through the years.”

Discussing their future together, Feldman told the talk show host that the duo were planning their first movie together in 9 years. He also said Haim was busy pitching a sequel to their film, “License to Drive.” As a closing remark, Feldman told King, “Hopefully, (Haim’s) going to be remembered as a beautiful, funny, enigmatic character who brought nothing but life and light and entertainment and art to all of our lives.”
