Spotlight On...Brad Renfro

Continuing the trend of teen Girl Porn Syndrom, I thought it would be fun to take a quick look at the career of my first teen crush, Brad Renfro.

Did you know?

Brad appeared in a commercial for Resident Evil 2 which was directed by George A. Romero. The 30 second spot is more entertaining than every Resident Evil movie.

Brad also appeared in an alternate music video for The Rolling Stone's Gimme Shelter.

Brad wrote and starred in a short film called Meter Man; which was cowritten and directed by Roger Bourdeau. Actor James Franco carved Brad Renfro's name onto his arm as part of a live art piece. No clue what motivated this or why the billboard for it is an advertisement for Gucci but it happened.

I don't even...

I can't top that so I'm leaving it here. Thanks for stopping by the Wastelands again. I'm Blinvy and I recommend you check out some of Brad Renfro's movies.

  1. Blinvy, I came upon your Blog and saw your Brad Renfro Spotlight! Great work! I especially loved the Led Zep song towards the end, I remember reading they were Brad's favorite band!
    I loved Brad Renfro from the time I was 13, that's 16 years! I know he has been gone for 4 years now, but his Birthday was a few weeks ago, and it makes ,me sad that there seemed to be no "Birthday Tributes" to him like they usually are on YouTube and such. This had sparked my curiosity to look further online hoping to see one... even though this Spotlight was from a few months ago, I am glad to see that someonme actually kept Brad's memory alive this year. It's so sad that we lost him, I do believe that if he rebounded from the drugs, that he would have come back an even more amazing actor than before he "fell off the Hollywood Radar".
    My bedroom walls were covered with his posters/ Tiger Beat Pin-ups, I really did think I was going to marry the guy! And even though I am a 29 year old married woman with a family, part of me (in my dreams) still does... RIP Brad Renfro... and thank you for keeping his memory alive!
