Wow. Story here (HT: Althouse):
David Carradine, the star of the 1970s television series “Kung Fu” and the title villain of the “Kill Bill” movies, has died in Thailand, The Associated Press reported. The United States Embassy in Bangkok told The A.P. that Mr. Carradine had been found dead in his hotel suite in Bangkok, where he was working on a movie. He was 72.
Tragic. It's the end of an era, RIP.
UPDATE: Apparently, he was found hanged in his hotel room closet. Suicide? More forthcoming.
UPDATE#2: It most likely wasn't suicide, and it may have been accidental.
