Jesse Farrelly—the 20-year-old son of There's Something About Mary director Bobby Farrelly—has died of what's believed to be a drug overdose. Authorities in California's Orange County took a 911 call about an "unresponsive young male...possible overdose" on Wednesday night, and Jesse was pronounced dead at a local hospital. His father, Bobby, and uncle, Peter, make up a hugely successful Hollywood directing, writing and production partnership, with hits like Dumb and Dumber and Shallow Hal to their name. Jesse had reportedly been helping out on their forthcoming Three Stooges movie recently. The Farrelly family has released the following statement: "It is with profound sorrow that we accept the passing of our beloved Jesse following his struggle with addiction. We fully trust that he is now in the hands of our Lord." More Americans now die from ODs than from traffic accidents.
