David Carradine (1936 -2009)

David Carradine, 72, apparently committed suicide yesterday in Bangkok.

Why would anyone want to take their own life? I'll never understand that. If it's true, then that's too bad.

My most impressionable memory of David Carradine came when he played the totally despicable South Carolina plantation owner Justin LaMotte in the 1985-1986 television miniseries "North and South" & "North and South Book II."

He was good in the "Kill Bill" movies, which I reviewed over on BIG screen last year.

but it doesn't look like a suicide:

(from the Age: http://www.theage.com.au/lifestyle/people/sex-game-gone-wrong-actor-david-carradine-found-dead-in-bangkok-20090605-by1d.html?page=-1)

"The 72-year-old actor ... was found hanging in a Bangkok hotel room wardrobe with a rope around his neck and other parts of his body."

sad story, but a great use of euphamism!

I hope it wasn't a suicide, but death by masturbation?! That sounds worse... almost.

Now people think it was made to look like a suicide by masturbation...
