Born on July 16, 1971, Corey Feldman has grown up in the spotlight. He began his career at the age of three when he made an appearance in a popular commercial for McDonald’s gift certificates. As a child, he starred in over eighty television commercials before making the transition to television and movies.
As a young boy, Corey appeared in a few television series and did some voice work, most notably in 1981’s The Fox and the Hound. It wasn’t until 1985, however, that Corey hit the big time with his first major film role in the ever-popular adventure movie, The Goonies. Corey’s career soon took off. He starred in more and more movies including the hit film Stand By Me in 1986, The Lost Boys (with soon-to-be buddy and frequent co-star Corey Haim) in 1987, and License To Drive in 1988 (also with Haim).
Following soon after were 1989’s Dream A Little Dream and The ‘burbs (with Tom Hanks). Unfortunately, these were the last well-known movies that Corey appeared in for several years. However, he did provide the voice of Donatello in the first and third installments of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trilogy.
Between 1992 and 1995, Corey appeared in over fifteen movies. It was also during this time that Corey began his music career. He recorded his first CD, Love Left , in 1994. Two of the tracks from this album appeared on the soundtrack for Dream A Little Dream 2. He also did soundtrack work and choreography for his films Rock ‘N Roll High School Forever and National Lampoon’s Last Resort.
Taking his music career a step further, Corey soon formed his current band, Corey Feldman’s Truth Movement. In December 1998, the band celebrated their first nationwide release with Still Searching For Soul. Corey hopes to do some touring in the near future in support of the album. He is also currently working on writing his autobiography, but no release date for that has been announced. As for movies, Corey hasn’t given up on his acting career yet. He is set to star in a new feature film, Fortune Hunters, due out in late 1999, and is currently filming an episode of the popular TV show, The Crow.
