Early Life

Corey Scott Feldman was born in Reseda, California, on July 16, 1971. His father, Bob Feldman, was a musician, and his mother, Sheila, was a cocktail waitress. He was raised Jewish.

Acting Career

Feldman first began acting at the age of three, when he appeared in a McDonald's commercial. He would go on to enjoy a successful career as a child actor, appearing in over 100 television commercials and on 50 television series. Some of the shows he appeared on include "The Bad News Bears," "Mork & Mindy," "Eight Is Enough," "One Day at a Time," and "Cheers." Additionally, as a child, he appeared in the film 'Time After Time" (1979) and voiced the role of Young Copper in Disney's animated film "The Fox and the Hound" (1981). He also appeared in the 1981 NBC children's special "How to Eat Like a Child" alongside Billy Jayne and Georg Olden.

As a teenager in the mid-1980s, Feldman featured in several high-grossing films. These include "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984), which grossed $33 million in the US on a budget of just $2.2 million; "Gremlins" (1984), which made $12.5 million in its first weekend and was the fourth highest-grossing film that year; "The Goonies" (1985), which was based on a story by its executive director Steven Spielberg and grossed $121 million against a budget of $19 million; and "Stand By Me" (1986), which co-starred Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, and Jerry O'Connell. He also starred in the ensemble cast of "The Lost Boys" (1987) as the character Edgar Frog, a role he returned to in the film's two sequels, "Lost Boys: The Tribe" (2008) and "Lost Boys: The Thirst" (2010). In addition to his numerous acting roles during this time, Feldman also ventured into voice acting, voicing the character Donatello in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" (1990).

Feldman struggled publicly with drugs after filming the 1989 film "The 'Burbs," and he tried to re-establish his career by starring in several lesser-known films, as well as releasing an album titled "Love Left." His return to the big screen came in 1993 with "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III," where he once again voiced the character Donatello. He then appeared in the films "Tales From The Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood" (1996), "Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys" (2004), "My Date with Drew" (2004), "Terror Inside" (2007) and "6 Degrees of Hell" (2012).

As a teen, Feldman became known along with his "Lost Boys" co-star Corey Haim as 'The Two Coreys.' The two went on to work together on several films, including "License to Drive" (1988), "Dream a Little Dream" (1989), and "Dream a Little Dream 2" (1995). They began working on independent films together, and Haim starred in the slapstick comedy "Busted" (1996), directed by Feldman. This was Feldman's first (and only) motion picture as director.

Since the 1990s, Feldman has appeared on several different shows. He starred in the CBS series "Dweebs" in the late 1990s and made appearances on shows like "Sliders" and "The Crow: Stairway to Heaven." He made his stage debut in the off-Broadway play "Fatal Attraction: A Greek Tragedy," directed by Timothy Haskell.
