The saddest part is thinking about how it effects his twin brother.

Fucking guns.

Eesh, you're right, that does suck.

Obviously I don't know if his being a successful child actor had anything to do with this, but that continues to be a sucky thing to deal with.

Or maybe I'm wrong. Maybe the suicide rates correlate with non-actors but we just always hear about these.
