"How did you find me?" "I'm the man."

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/8083479.stm

Many of us younger folk know David as Bill from the Kill Bill movies, and the older generation know him as Kwai Chang Caine from Kung Fu. David spent most of his career in bit parts, and in TV movies, but will always be known for those two roles, both massively popular and succesful. It's said the only reason Kung Fu only lasted 3 seasons is because David quit, being tired of getting injured all the time.

    Ouch. RIP Mr. Carradine, you will be missed.

    I watched Kung Fu all the time as a youngster. I always wondered why I didn't see him in too many other things after that, but he did very well in Kill Bill.

    The cause for this murder was most certainly a violent falling out with his liver.

    Aw, shit. He was an awesome actor.
    Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and genitals on Thursday morning.

    What. The. Fuck.

    He was filming a movie.

    And I didn't mention that because I didn't see a second source on it. So far that looks like bullshit to me.

    Edit: Looks like the BBC did update their article to include it. Sneaky bastards.

    But why would someone put a rope around their neck and genitalia?

    I would have understood rope around a neck = suicide hanging.

    O no you di-idn't

    Maybe he was trying to master the Iron-Testicle Style. That is so utterly random, but still a kick ass way to die. Perhaps Dan Brown will write a novel about it and how tying a rope around your neck and nuts is a symbol for how Noah is still alive...

    I never understood why they had him play a guy named Kwai Chang Caine. Where there no Asian actors available?

    You should read up on Bruce Lee, or see Dragon. Rumor has it that he came up with the series, but had it leg swept out from under him by the studios.

    Anyways, David Carradine. Yeah. Sad to hear. But- yeah, not the best actor in the world, guys.

    They didn't feel Bruce Lee could carry a television series, so they wanted a Western actor instead.

    Bruce Lee could go back to being the Asian sidekick.

    He wasn't the best actor in the world, but his monologue at the end of Kill Bill Part 2 is still one of my favorite scenes from a movie, and incredibly memorable.

    I read a few weird stories about him and public appearances. Anecdotal stuff, nothing I could cite. But really... autoerotic asphyxiation in Thailand? I guess some people like to choke while they're choking, but in Thailand... I dunno, there must have been someone willing to help him with that.

    Whatever, it sucks when someone dies. I can only hope he want out doing what he loved. It seems that he probably did.

    I find it odd about myself, personally, that I went right to "Oh, that was a murder made to look like a suicide." I don't even like conspiracy theories in general, but, probably as a result of hearing all the Bruce Lee anecdotes people mentioned above, my natural reaction was that someone decided it was time for payback.

    Regardless... first Eddings, now Carradine. Which David dies next?
