2010: Actor Corey Haim, known for movies such as "Lucas," "Silver Bullet," "License to Drive" and "The Lost Boys," dies at age 38 in Burbank, Calif. Although the actor, whose on-screen pairings with friend Corey Feldman earned the duo the nickname "The Two Coreys," was troubled by drug addiction throughout his later career, the Los Angeles County coroner's office ruled that his death was due to pneumonia.
