    Autoerotic asfixiation (I KNOW I didn't spell that right) was what I was hearing speculated about yesterday and it seems like it may actually be what it was. Too bad, a good actor and as already said someone that brought a number of people in a generation into the Martial Arts.

    If that's true, that's a pretty embarrassing way to die. I'd want people to think it was suicide too.

    The guy was 72, WTF was he thinking? I guess he needed some release.

    On NPR yesterday they said when cast for the Kung Fu role he did not know anything about martial arts.

    Actor David Carradine found dead in Bangkok (AP) - Yahoo! Movies

    He was the first star I ever saw in person when I moved to L.A. many moons ago.

    R.I.P.
    This quote is from 2004.

    "There isn't anything that Anthony Hopkins or Clint Eastwood or Sean Connery or any of those old guys are doing that I couldn't do," he said. "All that was ever required was somebody with Quentin's courage to take and put me in the spotlight."

    In the 2004 interview, Carradine talked candidly about his past boozing and narcotics use, but said he had put all that behind him and stuck to coffee and cigarettes.

    "You're probably witnessing the last time I will ever answer those questions," Carradine said. "Because this is a regeneration. It is a renaissance. It is the start of a new career for me.

    "It's time to do nothing but look forward."
    Sad.

    I think Bruce Lee was suppose to initially get the part, but he was doing Green Hornet or something.

    That is correct. The fact is that once you've trained in martial arts for a while, if you watch an old Kung-Fu episode it becomes painfully obvious that Carradine didn't know any martial arts worth mentioning at the time.

    Depending on who you believe, Bruce Lee wanted the role very badly, but didn't get it due to Hollywood's prejudice against Asians at the time.

    I disagree. Lucy knew how to get in Ricky's show, and she kept her man happy.
