    Actor David Carradine found dead in Bangkok

    BANGKOK - Actor David Carradine, star of the 1970s TV series "Kung Fu" who also had a wide-ranging career in the movies, has been found dead in the Thai capital, Bangkok. A news report said he was found hanged in his hotel room and was believed to have committed suicide.

    A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy, Michael Turner, confirmed the death of the 72-year-old actor. He said the embassy was informed by Thai authorities that Carradine died either late Wednesday or early Thursday, but he could not provide further details out of consideration for his family.

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

    Terrible terrible tragedy. I can't imagine what would drive him to hang himself.

    Whatever the reason, may he rest in peace now.

    His parts.

    Seriously, though, sorry about his death.

    I just called a very very good friend of mine who worked with Mr. Carradine a lot, floored him to hear this. He had his phone off and was about to listen to his voice mail because Mr. Carradine's niece had called him.


    Very sad RIP.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I remember watching Kung Fu every week. Got me interested in martial arts.

    He was also host of Wild West Tech on the History Channel.

    His commentary and attitude really added to the show.

    Hell, I hadn't even considered that. You take that into account, and he's done a lot more than entertain people.
