Looks like agents of the Emperor have arranged his death.

David Carradine found dead, hung in a Bangkok hotel room.

Adios Bill.

This is apparently a suspected suicide. I wonder if he was ailing, perhaps even terminal, and he decided he didn't want to go through that process.

Mandolin, check out Loving and Leaving the Good life, by Helen Nearing.
Never miss a chance to pimp that book. Sad, but good.

His representative is saying it was an accidental hanging. I feel bad for the poor housekeeper who found him. What a shock.

It sounds like one of those private moment accidents that you really don't want to have listed as your cause of death.

I loved David Carradine in Kung Fu. He was also excellent playing Woody Guthrie in Bound for Glory. Plus, who could forget Kill Bill?

Naked, hanging in a closet. I don't want to think about a private moment that involves that. Ever. Ewwww.

Sad nonetheless. He was great in Kill Bill.

Say it ain't so Grasshopper?

Not clear on how accidental hanging works, but celebrities and their agents seem to get more creative every day.

Wasn't the guy rich enough to hire "help" with that sort of erotic stunt?
Especially in Bangkok?

Grasshopper hanging in the closet next to the new dry cleaning. That's what I hate.

I could pretty much go the rest of my natural span without thinking of some 72 year old guy getting his jollies hanging in the closet. Like you said...couldn't he hire some help for that?
Ewwww. and Ick! What a way to be remembered, just like Michael Hutchence from INXS.
