Master Kan: Quickly as you can, snatch the pebble from my hand.
[Young Caine tries to do so and fails]
Master Kan: When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.


I guess our way will be that much smoother with one less pebble in the road .

Sad deal...

.... you gotta figure it must really suck to be a BAMF for several decades and then go to Thailand to shoot a movie and possibly wake up one morning and realize you're old.....

But I agree Ramsey - Really dumb way to die.

There is supposedly new info from his rep that this was not suicide and is now classified as "accidental".

All the sources a google search did not seem newsworthy enough to link though.

Either way this is a bummer. Kung Fu was an awesome show.

The MSN article I found earlier said the local cop called it a suicide, but wouldn't identify the victim......


It was a strange deal at the office today when I told everyone - The younger guy goes, "Isn't that the old guy from Kill Bill?" and the older guy started spouting off obscure lines from KungFu......

He was multi-generational star.....

They said he was found hanging naked in a closet. How can that be "accidental"? It's either murder or suicide under those conditions.

He was getting off and got way off.

Exactly - reminds me of the Mormon dad that stayed home from church sick one week and his poor family came home from church to find dad/pillar of community that same way....

..... on the flipside, people get naked a lot when they kill themselves - Don't know why, but I wish they wouldn't.

In some piss-poor attempt at bringing the thread back to Carradine, I totally forgot he was in deathrace2000 - He made a helluva career....

I heard sex act as well... and as good of a martial arts actor as he was, all I can seem to keep visualizing is those dumb arse yellowbook commercials!
