They were all a bunch of bad boys in their day—and in the movie—but they were perfect gentlemen when the cast of the sleeper hit Stand By Me got together again at the in Toluca Lake last week. The cast got together to answer questions for fans and reunite with Rob Reiner for the release of the 25th anniversary edition of the Blu-ray DVD.
It was kind of a sad reunion, actually. Richard Dreyfuss was there, but his career never blossomed after his Oscar win for The Goodbye Girl in 1977. Wil Wheaton was there, and he had a great run as young Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: Next Generation, but never made it into the big screen movies like he wanted. Corey Feldman was there, but he was sad because it was almost exactly a year since his best bud Lost Boy co-star Corey Haim was found dead nearby at his Oakwoods apartment in the Cahuenga Pass.
And, local boy landed ( sees them all the time together in the late afternoon at and spotted them a lot before they even announced their marriage), and they live now in the hills above the restaurant. Jerry was sad because he missed his friend River Phoenix who was in Stand By Me, and died of a drug overdose in front of the Viper Room in West Hollywood. ( had dinner with River a month before he died at the Toronto International Film Festival in 1993 with Studio City director .) . . .
’s ex, , is still living in Studio City, but he’s not the photographer he used to be when knew him. Now, he’s playing fulltime daddy to their daughter Dannielynn who will turn five this September. Larry was caught by his former colleagues in the paparazzi squad at the this past Tuesday while out running errands. Dannielynn was carrying a tube of M&M's as she and her dad exitted the store and walked back to the car. . . .

Britney Spears, boyfriend, and young son all ventured out to the field last weekend to watch Britney’s oldest, , play baseball at a local park. The closest photographers could get was behind the diamond across the field. . . .
