Brad Renfro (1982-2008)

  1. Heath Ledger, The Patriot, 2000.   Auditioned for  Mel Gibson’s son - murdered by a sadistic British officer -  during the American Revolution.  In 2008, Ledger ODed on prescription drugs, just a week after Renfro ODedon heroin.
  2. Jason Ritter,   Freddy vs Jason, 2003.   Renfro was promptly dumped after a few days for being “too strung out” to work. And replaced by Ritter - who happened to be in the #1 film of that week, Swimfan. Ritter, son of John, grandson of Tex, had initially been turned down as not right for the role. He proved the best (the only?) actor in the movie. Suits!
  3. Justin Long, Live Free or Die Hard, 2006.      Originally due to be John McClane’s son, our hero’s computer geek sidekick Matt Farrell in Hard 4 was chosen from Long, Renfro, Ben Affleck, Ron Huebel, Kai Penn, Scott Speedman. Director Len Wiseman wanted Speedman, Bruce Willis voted Affleck and their 1997 Armageddon chemistry. McClane Jr was kept in the Fox freezer until A Good Day To Die Hard, aka Hard 5, in 2012.
