David Carradine Dead; Found Hanged in Bangkok

     June 4, 2009

headline-1.jpgAccording to various reports, actor David Carradine has committed suicide by hanging himself in a hotel room in Bangkok while working on his latest film, “Stretch”.  He was 72.

Best known for his leading role as “Kwai Chang Caine”, a Shaolin priest traveling the 1800s American frontier West on the TV Show “Kung Fu”, Carradine had made a bit of a resurgance in recent years due in no small part to his fantastic performance as the title character in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” films.  I wish I had more familiarity with Carradine’s work but I will say that his “Superman” speech in that film is unforgettable.

Our deepest condolences go out to his friends and family.
