No one really met the criteria today, so I figured I’d do Brad Renfro for the actor profile, since his career is finite. Renfro passed away in 2008 at the age of 25.The first film of his I saw was actually The Client. In theatres.
I’m going with the performance that put Renfro on the scene in the first place. The Client. Some people found it cheesy, but I still think it’s a solid drama, and Brad Renfro is one of the best child actors to ever break onto the scene.
MOST ICONIC PERFORMANCE
This is probably still The Client.
MOST UNDERRATED PERFORMANCE:
I think he was great in Bully if you haven’t seen it. Or The Cure, an earlier work of his. Also, he had a small but great role in Sleepers.
BEST PERFORMANCE I’VE HEARD WAS GREAT AND HAVEN’T SEEN
I’ve never seen Apt Pupil or Telling Lies In America. I heard both were good, and he was good in them.
I haven’t seen some films on his resume, but The Informers was a disappointing film even though it had nothing to do with Renfro’s performance.
ROLES I’VE SEEN:
- The Client (1994)
- The Cure (1995)
- Tom and Huck (1995)
- Sleepers (1996)
- Bully (2001)
- Ghost World (2001)
- The Informers (2008)
