Actor David Carradine was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room earlier today. The Sun newspaper reported that Carradine was found hanged. Carradine was famous for his roles in the television series "Kung Fu" and more recently in the Quentin Tarantino film "Kill Bill 2."

Carradine came from a large family of actors. His father was actor John Carradine, and his brother Bruce Carradine and half-brothers Keith and Robert Carradine are also well known actors.

Details of Carradine’s death are still developing. Suicide will likely be looked into, although it is unknown if the 72 year old actor suffered from depression. He was in Thailand shooting a film at the time of his death.

Because of this wide ranging and popular roles, fans of many ages will mourn his death.

    A truly shocking and very sad news event to hear of his tragic death. I never followed the Kung Fu series very much but I came to admire his work in many of the numerous movies he performed in (along with the rest of his family members too). Let's all hope that there is a thorough investigation and we find out exactly what went wrong. My thoughts and prayers go out today to all of the Carradine family.
