Sometimes you just can never tell what's going through one person's head. David Carradine, who has enjoyed a Hollywood career strong enough to make him a legend, decided life wasn't worth living anymore while staying at the luxury Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel in Bangkok.
David Carradine Found Dead
Carradine was in Bangkok to shoot the movie Stretch. When he failed to show up on set, police checked Carradine's room and found his body, naked, hanging in the closet. Police have confirmed that there was no sign that he had been assaulted. The actor was 72.
"My Uncle David was a brilliantly talented, fiercely intelligent and generous man. He was the nexus of our family in so many ways, and drew us together over the years and kept us connected," Carradine's daughter, Martha Plimpton said Thursday.
Though Carradine appeared in over 100 feature films, the actor was best known for his stint on the TV series Kung Fu, which aired between 1972 and 1975.
"I wasn't like a TV star in those days, I was like a rock 'n' roll star," Carradine said in an interview with Associated Press Radio in 1996. "It was a phenomenon kind of thing. ... It was very special."
I know it's not much, but a Kill Bill party seems like the appropriate send off.
