I loved Jonathan Brandis when I was a kid.
Such a shame for all of them.

Wow, I remember Jonathan Brandis from movies, but I had no idea that he had committed suicide. Where have I been?

I forgot all about Jonathan Brandis committing suicide. I was a Brad Renfro fan too. Poor guys. said...

I remember when news hit of River Phoenix's death. Such a sad post but an important one.
Thanks, Ally.

I was in shock when I heard about Heath. He was the first younger guy I ever had a crush on. I first fell in love with him on the short-lived show Roar. He and River are huge losses to the whole movie viewing world, probably the best male actors of their generations. Corey was one of my favorites too, the other 2 I don't remember as much.
