Famous Actor David Carradine Dies!

Famous Actor David Carradine 72 has died today apparently from suicide at his Bangkok hotel where he was filming a new movie! He was known for his martial arts role as Kwai Chang Caine . Kwai was nicknamed "Grasshopper," by his Shaolin master Po in the 70's movie series Kung Fu. I remember all the guys from that era wanting to be just like Kwai, carrying around Nun chucks to be cool! I always thought it was so neat that he could walk on rice paper without making a mark!

David Carradine is also well known for his most recent role in the violent massacre movie Kill Bill. David has starred in over 100 movies, and has maintained his raw handsome looks even as he aged! David Carradine will be sadly missed by all his fans old and new! Rest in peace Grasshopper!

We have sad news here, too. Many famous people have passed in a row. A lady in her early 30s was very sad.

May all rest in peace.
