David Carradine dead at 72

David CarradineKung Fu star David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok, Thailand hotel.

The cause of death hasn't been confirmed yet. First reports said that there was no cause of death, then his manager said it was natural causes, and now some news outlets are saying he committed suicide by hanging. I'm sure we'll find out more news later today.

Besides his run on Kung Fu, Carradine made a ton of movies, including the Kill Bill films, Crank: High Voltage, Death Race 2000, Mean Streets, Bound For Glory, The Long Riders, Grey Lady Down and many others. He was also in many TV shows over the years, including Alias, Night Gallery, Ironside, Gunsmoke, Medium, and King of the Hill. He also has a role as Gideon in FOX's summer series Mental.

Carradine was in Thailand to film a new movie.

Kung Fu was my introduction to the martial arts and the philosophy of the martial arts. He will be missed.

he was found with rope tied around his neck and testicles, sounds to me like foreplay gone wrong, and not suicide.

what a sick perv!

Since 1) nude suicides outside of the bathtub or the ocean are very rare, 2) his agent insists that it was an accidental death, and 3) he was found naked in a closet with a rope around his neck and "other parts of his body", the most likely cause of death is the same one a psychic once predicted for Mulder on X-Files, auto-erotic asphyxiation.

My favorite film is Circle Of Iron, which he and Bruce Lee developed. Bruce died before the film was started. He was so fantastic, and such a nice guy. I cannot believe this, and truly grieve for the loss.
