    Default 'Kung Fu' star David Carradine found dead

    CNN Breaking news:

    -- 'Kung Fu' star David Carradine has been found dead in a hotel in Bangkok, Thailand, according to his manager.


    RIP....

    EDIT: more details:

    (CNN) -- American actor David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok, Thailand, hotel, according to his personal manager, Chuck Binder.

    Binder said Thursday that the death is being investigated but could provide no other details.

    Carradine, who became famous in the 1970s when he starred in the television series "Kung Fu," was 72.

    Modern audiences may best know him as "Bill" in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" films.

    I saw this article that said he committed suicide by hanging himself in his luxury hotel. RIP David.

    BANGKOK (AP) - 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 Carradine died either late Wednesday or early Thursday, but he could not provide further details out of consideration for his family.

    The Web site of the Thai newspaper The Nation cited unidentified police sources as saying Carradine was found Thursday hanged in his luxury hotel room and is believed to have committed suicide.

    Carradine was a leading member of a venerable Hollywood acting family that included his father, character actor John Carradine, and brother Keith.

    In all, he appeared in more than 100 feature films with such directors as Martin Scorsese, Ingmar Bergman and Hal Ashby.

    But he was best known for his role as Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin priest traveling the 1800s American frontier West in the TV series "Kung Fu," which aired in 1972-75.

    He reprised the role in a mid-1980s TV movie and played Caine's grandson in the 1990s syndicated series "Kung Fu: The Legend Continues."

    He returned to the top in recent years as the title character in Quentin Tarantino's two-part saga "Kill Bill."

    Really too bad. Makes me wonder what really is going on in peoples minds. I wonder if he had some ailment as yet unrevealed and wanted to go out on his terms.

    Dang. I met David about 10 years ago. Super great guy. I gave him a golf lesson and it was a slow day so we played about 4 holes together. Very sad that he felt whatever he had going on was so insurmountable to the point he'd have to do that.

    well...once in a while people kill themselves because they're done living or because they don't feel like dealing with an illness. Hunter S. Thompson did this. He decided he was done, didnt want to put up with cancer, so he said to hell with it. He blew his brains out and left a bunch of money for Johnny Depp to throw a big party and have his ashes shot out of a cannon.

    That's the way to go right there!
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a cord around his neck and other parts of his body.
