Guest TV Roles
Canadian-born Haim broke into the Film industry in 1984 as a young child caught up in a family war in the hit movie Firstborn (1984). The following year he starred in the TV movie A Time to Live (1985) (TV), for which he received an award, and Silver Bullet (1985). Lucas (1986), in which he starred alongside Charlie Sheen (I) showed his ability, but was not a big hit.
In 1987 he had a breakthrough when he played one of the major roles in Joel Schumacher's The Lost Boys (1987), but his output during the nineties was disappointing. He hopes to turn his career around with two newly finished movies Without Malice (2000) (TV) and Universal Groove (2007) and there is a chance of a role in the much-rumored The Lost Boys (1987) sequel.
- Was engaged to 'Nicole Eggert' (qv), whom he credits with helping save his life on a certain occasion: while they were filming one of several movies together, she noticed that Haim was suffering from a narcotic "rush." Eggert promptly drove him to the local hospital where Corey was detoxed. (The irony is that her _"Baywatch" (1989)_ (qv) character, "Lifeguard Summer Quinn," was seldom allowed to do anything nearly as heroic.)
- Favorite food: Pizza, Favorite actress: 'Cybill Shepherd' (qv). Favorite Actor: 'James Dean (I)' (qv).
- In 2004, he became the subject of a single by the Irish band, 'The Thrills' (qv) entitled "Whatever Happened To Corey Haim?".
- Ranked #26 on VH1's 100 Greatest Kid Stars.
- He and 'Corey Feldman' (qv) were known as "The Two Coreys" at the peak of their careers in the 1980s.
- His dad, Bernie, worked as a sales rep. His mom, Judy, worked as a computer operator.
- Father is French-Canadian.
- Sister by the name of Carol "Cari" Haim, who is 2 years older than Corey, accidentally got him interested in acting when he accompanied her when she auditioned for roles.
