Sad. According to Wikipedia, Carradine could have been Lando Calrissian but turned the role down because Lando betrays his friends to the Empire. Respect.

He was a fine actor and presence underappreciated by millions but loved by those who knew his work.

He'll be missed.

RIP David, Caine and Bill.

Some reports are coming out of Bangkok saying that he hung himself.



The best part of waking up is not Folgers in your cup, but knowing that Chuck Norris didn't kill you in your sleep.

Fox news story with nice career roundup.

I just heard via Twitter. The message I got is going with suicide.

Shocking in any case.

Is it weird that when I hear of a big news story, the first place I come for more info is here?

It's weirder than that, apparently.

This sucks. I always liked him in both 'Kung Fu' series and was glad to see that he overcame his drug & drinking problems to finally get the recognition he deserved in 'Kill Bill'. He had a long and interesting career. Sad to see it end this way. RIP

Death Race 2000 was pretty badass. I've loved that flick since I was like eight or nine. Weird to find out that Carradine was apparently researching the death of Michael Hutchence...

That's uncalled for.

Looks like he might have died of autoerotic asphyxiation gone wrong. Yikes.

Click Here (news.yahoo.com)



    Police Lt. Gen. Worapong Chewprecha told reporters that Carradine was found with a rope "tied around his penis and another rope around his neck."

    "The two ropes were tied together," he said. "It is unclear whether he committed suicide or not or he died of suffocation or heart failure due to an orgasm."

    Thai police completed an autopsy on Carradine Friday but so far have not released the results.

    Dr. Nanthana Sirisap, director of Chulalongkorn Hospital's Autopsy Center, told reporters that the autopsy was conducted because of the "unusual circumstances surrounding Carradine's death," but he did not elaborate.

    Police Lt. Teerapop Luanseng had said on Thursday that Carradine's body was found "naked, hanging in a closet," and that police at the time suspected suicide.

I believe it was either Colin Quinn or Norm MacDonald that said it best on weekend update when the dude from INXS did it "The only thing more embarassing than being found dead that way is being found alive that way"

There is no controversy or twist. Except for some fanboys that are going nuts that someone with more muscles isn't playing Brock. (spoiler text)
