Actor Corey Haim, who became a teenage star in such 1980s movies as "Lucas" and "The Lost Boys," died early Wednesday at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank of an apparent drug overdose. He was 38.

Haim had struggled with drug problems for years. He and another former teen actor, Corey Feldman, appeared for two seasons in an A&E reality program, "The Two Coreys." It was canceled in 2008.
