David Carradine: 1936-2009

Damn I loved Kung Fu.... Sad day really, condolences out to his surviving family.
Actor David Carradine was found dead early this morning in a Bangkok, Thailand, hotel. The cause of death is uncertain at this point, with multiple sources reporting suicide, natural and accidental deaths.
Carradine appeared in more than 100 feature-length films and numerous television series, earning four Globe Nominations in the process. He rose to fame for his portrayal of Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s TV series Kung Fu, and later for his work in films like The Long Riders and Quentin Tarentino's Kill Bill series.

Carradine's manager Chuck Binder calls his death "shocking," adding that "He was full of life, always wanting to work... a great person." Carradine is survived by his wife and four children.
