Producer JC Spink’s Death Ruled Accidental Drug Overdose

LA Coroners Office cites ”multiple drug intoxication“ in autopsy report for film producer

The death of movie producer JC Spink has been ruled an accidental drug overdose by the Los Angeles Coroners Office.

Spink, who shepherded titles like “The Hangover,” “We’re the Millers” and “A History of Violence” with partner Chris Bender, was found dead at his West Hollywood home in April.

His autopsy report indicates his death was accidental and cited “multiple drug intoxication.”

Originally from Philadelphia, Spink was one half of Benderspink, the management-production company that he founded with Bender. The college pals were assistants at management-production company Zide-Perry Productions before striking out on their own in 1998, working out of a house they shared in LA.

In just under two decades, Spink racked up credits on movies such “The Hangover” trilogy, “The Butterfly Effect,” the “Ride Along” films and “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.” He was nominated for a Golden Globe for producing Viggo Mortensen’s “A History of Violence.”

Spink is survived by his brothers, his parents Marsh and Helyn, his sisters-in-law Jessica and Holly, his niece Campbell and his nephew Bennett. Read TheWrap’s account of his emotional memorial service, widely attended by the show business community.
