Buddy Duress Dead at 38

Fans of “Good Time” and “Heaven Knows What” were stunned when Buddy Duress's death was announced.

His death was recently confirmed by his brother, Christopher Stathis, during an interview with People Magazine.

Duress was only 38 years old.

Gone Too Soon

Duress may have only been 38, but he had been tempting fate for quite some time.

According to his brother, he died in November of last year from a “cardiac arrest from a drug cocktail.”

That sounds about right for Duress, who started his acting career in 2014 after being released from prison for… drug-related charges.

In fact, Duress had a long history of problems with the law, having been sent to jail close to a dozen times for possession and identity theft, among other charges.

This has cost him at times, with Duress having lost out on a role in “The King of Staten Island,” which was a Peter Davidson-Judd Apatow production that Davidson wound up playing the lead.

At the time, Duress stated, “I could have done the [Apatow] movie. But instead, I am here in jail.”

Duress got his major break in 2014, starring in “Heaven Knows What,” but he did not get to walk the red carpet because he was in jail when the movie premiered.

He actually auditioned for “Person to Person” while in jail, with Duress making a vow to get away from drugs.

At the time, he stated, “I’m done with the drugs, man.

“I want to get the f–k out of [jail], get on with my life and keep acting.”

His career took off after “Person to Person,” with Duress compiling a very respectable resume, but eventually, the devil got back in his ear, and he apparently reverted to his old ways.
