Seventy-two year old movie and TV star David Carradine was found dead today on location in a Bangkok hotel room.  From what officials know, it looks like Carradine committed suicide.  Officials are still investigating the situation, however.

Carradine was best known for his role on TV’s “Kung Fu” and most recently as “Bill” from the Kill Bill series.  He also appeared in those “Yellow Book” ads, and had numerous cameos all over the place typically cast as the wise older, martial-artsy guy.  His calm demeanor and connection to Eastern ways will be missed on screen and off.
