"Basketball Diaries" Director Scott Kalvert Dead at 49, Possible Suicide

Posted: March 8th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Basketball Diaries" Director Scott Kalvert Dead at 49, Possible SuicideSubmit Comment
Scott Kalvert, best known for directing 1995's "The Basketball Diaries," died Wednesday. He was found in his home in Woodland Hills and pronounced dead at 1:55 pm. The L.A. Coroner's Office is investigating the death as a possible suicide. He was only 49 years old.

In addition to his work with Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Wahlberg in "Basketball Diaries," Kalvert was known for directing music videos such as DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith's "Parents Just Don't Understand," Salt-N-Pepa's "Shoop" and Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch's "Good Vibrations."

He also directed the 2002 feature "Deuces Wild," starring Stephen Dorff and Brad Renfro. His most recent credit was for the 2009 made-for-TV Nickelodeon musical "School Gyrls," on which he served as an executive producer.

Donnie Wahlberg, whom Kalvert directed in New Kids on the Block's 1993 video "Dirty Dawg," remembered the director in a series of tweets Friday. "RIP to a dear friend; Scott Kalvert. The role you played in mine, and my brother Mark's career success, can't be measured. You'll be missed," he wrote.
