I hope it's not suicide...
Seems as though there is probably more to this story.
Wow. Pretty surprising. And possibly suicide.
What a bummer...I really liked him.
I actually am enjoying this news being above all of Obama’s escapades.
He accidentally kicked himself in the throat.
I mean according to the story I read from the Bankok news articles (on the internet) he was in Thialand filming a movie at the time.
I'm not sure that a working actor would commit such an act as suicide unless he was on drugs or out of his mind on something. Since Mr Carradine was 72 I kinda of doubt that.
I think the authorities shouldn't dismiss this so quickly as a suicide.
I might be wrong, but It just sound fishy to me.
I wonder if Beatrix Kiddo was speeding away from the scene in her little convertible?
Yes, he was great at acting. Prayers for his family.
A young female actor (cannot remember name) killed herself just last month over a fight with her boyfriend who found her hanging in the bathroom I believe it was. She too was filming at the time. Not so uncommon. Actors aren’t normally happy people....Hollywood lie that they are!
“It said a preliminary police investigation found that he had hanged himself with a cord used with the room’s curtains. It cited police as saying he had been dead at least 12 hours and there was no sign that he had been assaulted.”
“Found dead in a Thailand motel” - that scenario is never going to be benign. RIP - he created some unforgettable work.
Yahoo site says he hanged himself....
I liked him a lot ... too bad they thought the highlight of his career was Kill Bill ... although I guess that was the biggest thing he had done in 2 decades. For most middle aged adults, he will be Kwai Chang Caine ... and for a small group he will be Frankenstein. For older adults, he will be Shane. Amazingly, IMDB lists him with 222 Movie and TV series credits (an entire TV series only counts as 1 credit). At his death, he had 6 projects in post-production and 1 in pre-production.
