On July 16, 1971 Corey Scott Feldman was born the 2nd of five children. His cherubic face and outgoing demeanor convinced his parents, Bob and Sheila, that he was made to be a star. This proved to be true because by the time he was 3, he landed his first role in a McDonald’s commercial. In his youth he appeared in over 100 television commercials and appeared on 50 TV shows from “Mork and Mindy” to “Eight is Enough” to “One day at a time”. He was also in the TV show Cheers, playing a Little Leaguer coached by Coach. He debuted in the films “Time After Time” and “The Fox and the Hound”, for Disney. He then went on to star in 15 #1 movies in a row. These movies included “Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter” (1984), “Gremlins” (1984), “The Goonies” (1985), “The Burbs” (1989), “Stand By Me” (1986). In 1987, Feldman appeared with Corey Haim in “The Lost Boys”. This film marked the first on-screen pairing of Feldman and Haim, who became known as “The Two Coreys.” The pair went on to star in a string of films, including “License to Drive” (1988) and “Dream a Little Dream” (1989). Tired of the “Corey Mania”, Feldman and Haim decided to part ways professionally and to focus on their personal careers, although they remained close friends throughout the years until a feud in 2008, as documented by the A&E reality show “The Two Coreys”.In 1992, Feldman and Haim reunited for the HBO movie “Blown Away”. He then released his first solo album “Love Left” (1994). In the late 1990s, Feldman starred in the TV series “Dweebs” and released his second album, “Still Searching for Soul” (1999), with his band Corey Feldman’s Truth Movement.
Truth Movement did its first tour across America playing 33 dates to sold out crowds. Feldman released a third album “Former Child Actor” (2002). He also appeared in the first celebrity-driven reality series “The Surreal Life” on the WB network. On the show, he publicly married Susie Sprague on October 30, 2002. The next year, he made a cameo appearance in the film “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star”. He appeared alongside his wife, Susie, in the Moby music video “We Are All Made Of Stars”.
In 2004, Susie and Corey’s first child, Zen Scott Feldman, was born on August 7th.

In 2007, Feldman and Corey Haim began a reality TV show entitled, “The Two Coreys”, on the A&E Network.

Feldman was also Executive Producer for both seasons. During the summer of 2008, the Feldmans released a provocative PETA ad “Give peas a chance”, reminiscent of the John and Yoko “bed-in for peace” photo. On July 29th, “Lost Boys: The Tribe” was released. Feldman’s other acting work for 2008 include “Lucky Fritz” was shot in Berlin, Germany. The comedy film also stars his wife, Susie.
On November 25th, Feldman and Truth Movement released the Eco friendly album Titled “Technology Analogy”. The album reflects on the pros and cons of computer technology and how it is integrated into today’s society. Truth Movement is a Pink Floyd-inspired homage to classic rock.
