    David Carradine R.I.P

    'Kung Fu' star David Carradine has been found dead in a hotel in Bangkok, Thailand

    American actor David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok, Thailand, hotel, according to his personal manager, Chuck Binder.

    David Carradine became famous in the 1970s after starring in the television series "Kung Fu."

    Binder said Thursday that the death is being investigated but could provide no other details.

    Carradine's death was "shocking and sad. He was full of life, always wanting to work ... a great person," Binder told People magazine.

    Carradine, who became famous in the 1970s when he starred in the television series "Kung Fu," was 72.

    Modern audiences may best know him as "Bill" in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" films.

    His career included more than 100 feature films, two dozen television movies and theater work.

    It seems like it was a suicide.

    Various other news agencies – including Thailand’s English-language newspaper The Nation – are reporting that the 73-year-old was found in his Bangkok hotel room, a victim of an apparent suicide by hanging.
    While he was the star of the Kung Fu series, it was originally to star Bruce Lee, the show was actually based on Lee's idea, who lost the role because studio executives felt he was 'too Chinese' for the role. Of course Bruce Lee went on to Hong Kong and became the biggest Martial Arts star the world has ever known but I've often wondered how things would have turned out if he had gotten the role in Kung Fu.

    Now they're reporting that it was accidental and it sounds to me like he did a Michael Hutchence ie. autoerotic asphyxiation. (stretching your meat while at the end of a noose)

    Not the way I'd like to go.

    This is all very bizarre. If it was indeed voluntary suicide, why go to Bangkok to do it? Was he pissed that he got kicked out of a brothel or something? Very bizarre. And let's say that he pulled a Michael Hutchence, which i find even more bizarre, how can they tell?

    Well to be crude, they found him nude with a cord around his neck and cock.

    Yeah as soon as I read it I was thinking it was a Hutchence. They both took things in excess. As for Thailand, that's Gary Glitter turf and who knows if David went there for the same reason.

    He was there filming a movie, not for any sordid personal reasons.

    What I'm wondering about is what the topic of the film was. It just seems weird that it was named 'Stretch' when what he did was use a cord to stretch his neck and his penis. Yeah I know...I'm stretching things.

    A very sad turn of events in any case.

    You could be right, Detective. Then again, people have been known to mix business with pleasure.

    Gary Glitter was arrested in Thailand on child sex charges. Thailand is the world's capital for child sex tourism.

    Carradine's sex secrets spilled

    In the wake of David Carradine's mysterious death, two of his ex-wives are shedding light on his kinkier sexual preferences.

    Gail Jensen and Marina Anderson -- wives No. 3 and 4, respectively -- confirm that the "Kung Fu" star had engaged in sex acts that veer from the norm.

    Jensen tells RadarOnline that Carradine liked to tie himself up, had a fetish for Speedos and often experimented with drowning himself in the pool. In another interview with TMZ, she says that Carradine had hung himself up in the basement in a crucifix position, mimicking Jesus Christ, while a party was going on upstairs.

    In addition, Anderson confirms that the statements she made while filing for divorce from the actor were true:

    "It was the continuation of abhorrent and deviant sexual behaviour which was potentially deadly. His deviant behavior includes an incestuous relationship with a very close family member, which permeated our marriage. This is to his admission and the admission of the person involved."
