Kung Fu, No More

Actor David Carradine found dead.


He may have been Kwai Chang Caine to the rest of the world, but to me he was always Frankenstein.

RIP

I will always know him as Grasshopper from Kung Fu. I loved that show. I'm sorry his life ended this way. RIP.

That really sucks, the only movie I really saw Carradine in was Kill Bill...I heard he was a legend in Kung-Fu films though.

hehe hand grenade... Yeah I'll remember him as the original Frankenstein from Death Race 2000.

Guess it's a sign of me getting older that actors I grew up with are now dieing off.

But he was 72 and a smoker. Ya couldn't expect him to last forever...

RIP Kwai Chang Caine...it's just sad when such a gifted actor takes their own life or anyone for that matter.

I hope this is just a parallel to the fact that they both died in a hotel room...


R.I.P. David Carradine...it sucks that someone has to go this way...

Edit:
Nevermind, I just read something alluding to an accident involving autoerotic asphyxiation.

I'm waiting for a reputable source though...a Thai daily newspaper...errr...you know...might be trying to sell some copies...

People, be discreet of the more sordid details on this PG-13 forum. I don't want to read a post and say to myself "TMI!"

He's my hero.

Fair play to the guy, loved him in Kill Bill. I never even saw Kung Fu, though looking at the description it seems kinda good.

Death Race 2000 is my favorite "B" movie.

The Carradine family is loaded with acting talent and David was no different. He will be missed.

RIP.

This is really sad and unfortunate...I always enjoyed the Kung Fu series, so much so that I joked with my fellow Martial Art friends that we were 'Grasshoppers.' RIP, David Carradine.


you very much

He went out like Michael Hutchence, But I'll always remember him as the blind flute-player, a monkey chieftain, a death character, and the leader of a gypsy tribe in Circle of Iron (I knew it as the Silent Flute)
