    Default RIP David Carradine

    Mr Carradine, most famous for his role as Bill in the Kill Bill saga, was found dead in Bangkok today. Early reports state that the cause of death is suicide.

    A very sad day indeed.

    Most famous for Kill Bill to maybe this generation, but to me he will always be Kwai Chang Caine from the TV series "Kung Fu" with a smidgen of Frankenstein from Death Race 2000.

    Still it is a sad day.

    RIP

    I hated that stupid Kung Fu series just because they used a white guy. Kill Bill was good though.

    Suicide?

    I agree as well, Kwai Chang Caine was his true breakthrough character.

    Ahhh, Grasshopper, when you can move the BBQ with your bare hands without being burned, THEN you are truly a master!

    I used to race home to see that show every day.

    That was such a funny movie. I remember one scene where one of the drivers sees a sign for the old folks home and makes a detour. All you see is bodies flying over the hedges...

    lol

    OK so my memory is a little fuzzy, but this is the clip;
