I’m so sorry to hear this, he was so young & perspective actor, I adored his character dialogues with Danny Crane in BL… The site, which is mostly fun based fan forum in this occasion shares sympathy & sorrow for this young life.

@dany crane fan:
Do you seriously need to link an Angelina Jolie site on that occasion? Terrible.
However: I really like his work, especially on Boston Legal. RIP.
