David Carradine, best known for starring in the TV series Kung Fu, was found dead yesterday in Bangkok where he was on location shooting a film, according to People:
According to manager Chuck Binder, the movie’s producer went to Carradine’s hotel room and found that he had passed away. Binder told Fox News the death is “shocking and sad. He was full of life, always wanting to work … a great person.”

Among his later screen roles was in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, in which he played Bill.
Rest in Peace, Grasshopper.
UPDATE: BBC News reports David hung himself in the closet of his hotel room and was found with a cord around his neck and “other parts of his body.” Well, that’s one way to go.
