    David Carradine, dead at 72.

    David Carradine found dead in Bangkok

    Published on June 4, 2009

    "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.

    That's sad, I grew up watching Kung Fu, and am a Kill Bill fan. I don't get the suicide bit at all.
    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    Suicide?

    I can't believe that, not knowing what I do of his personal philosophy, that just doesn't make sense at all...

    When I can no longer snatch the pebble from some blind old dude's hand, I'll probably hang myself too.

    My best friend for a while in college was this chick i had classes with. After goofing off on saturday mornings we used to snuggle up on the couch and watch Kung Fu: The legend continues until we wound up falling asleep together. Her dad would come home and be pissed. Fun times.

    Spooning is not a crime. We were both clothed.

    He never walked in on the unclothed sessions.

    Just because youre male/female best friends and everyone things you're boinking doesn't mean you arent.
