    RIP David Carradine. Gave great pleasure to those of us that watched Kung Fu on telly. Great stories, acting and a sense of righteousness he gave in his performances; only fought as a last resort, unlike the modern day mindless fight movies......Ah SOh... Grasshopper!

    Kung Fu star Carradine found dead



    Carradine was best known recently for starring in Kill Bill

    Kill Bill and Kung Fu star David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok hotel room.
    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.
    The star was in Thailand filming his latest film Stretch, according to his personal manager Chuck Binder.
    Mr Binder said the news was "shocking", adding: "He was full of life, always wanting to work... a great person."
    Carradine was part of an acting dynasty which included his father, John Carradine, and brothers Bruce, Keith and Robert.
    The star was best known for his role as Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s TV series Kung Fu, which spawned sequels in the '80s and '90s.
    After a career which included more than 100 movies, he recently found fame again thanks to his role in Quentin Tarantino's 2003 film Kill Bill.
    He is survived by his wife, Annie Bierman, and four children.

    The BBC World news item really said "with a rope round his neck and body".

    You are sick for that edit.

    RIP Mr Carradine.

    David Carradine found dead in Bangkok

    David Carradine found dead in Bangkok




    "Kung Fu" and "Kill Bill" star David Carradine was found hung himself in a closet in a hotel room in Bangkok on Wednesday, Thai police said.

    Police believed he committed suicide.

    Carradine, 72, was in Bangkok to shoot his latest movie, Stretch, and stayed at a Suite Room 352 of the Park Nai Lert Hotel on Wireless Road since June 2.

    The film crew were aware of his absence when they went to dine out at a restaurant on Sathorn Road on June 3.

    Carradine did not show up at the dinner and the team could not reach him. They assumed that he took a rest because of his age.

    It was a hotel's maid who opened his suite on Thursday at 10 am only to find Carradine in a closet. He was described as behind half naked.

    Police investigation showed that he hung himself with a rope, the kind that is used with curtains.

    Police said he was dead for not less than 12 hours and found no sign of fighting and assaults.
    His personal manager, Chuck Binder, told BBC that the news was "shocking", adding: "He was full of life, always wanting to work... a great person."
    Kung Fu Man

    Aside from Quentin Tarantino's two-part "Kill Bill" in 2003 and 2004, Carradine was perhaps best known for his role as the fugitive half-Chinese Shaolin monk Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s easternwestern TV drama "Kung Fu". He also starred in Martin Scorsese's "Boxcar Bertha" in 1972, portrayed folksinger Woody Guthrie in "Bound for Glory" in 1976, acted in Ingmar Bergman's "The Serpent's Egg" in 1977 and co-starred with half brothers Keith Carradine and Robert Carradine in the 1980 western "The Long Riders".

    His father was the noted actor John Carradine.

    In Thai cinemas, Carradine was recently seen as a martial arts guru in the Rob Schneider comedy "Big Stan" and as a perverted elderly Chinese mobster in "Crank: High Voltage" starring Jason Statham.

    Looks like someone Killed Bill after all...

    Probably an overzealous slapper from Nana and he couldn't handle the strain... Bangkok can do that to an old guy...

    RIP David Carradine...

    Think it most likely he had tied his ball bag and neck up, inside a wardrobe isn't really the normal place to commit suicide.
