David Carradine

UPDATE #2: The Associated Press has confirmed upon a second autopsy by pathologist Dr. Michael Baden that the cause of David Carradine’s death was indeed asphyxiation and not suicide. Baden also made it clear that he does not yet know if this was accidental or homicide.

UPDATE: While complete details are still unknown, it does appear that suicide has been ruled out. At the moment, as sad as it is, it looks like Mr. Carradine had some rather extreme fetishes, and one of them went horribly wrong. While this doesn’t make things any less odd or questionable, it is comforting to know that this very talented actor did not take his own life.

CNN is reporting that David Carradine, the star of ’70s TV show Kung Fu and title character in Kill Bill, has been found dead in a Bangkok, Thailand hotel room. Sadly, Mr. Carradine was found hanging by a nylon rope in the closet of the room, leading authorities to believe the cause of death to be suicide. He was 72 years old.

Just coming down the wire from TMZ within in the past hour or so is word from a representative of Carradine’s who says that there is no way it was suicide, explaining “We can confirm 100% that he never would have committed suicide. It was an accidental death. Everybody is in shock.”

An autopsy was being performed in a Bangkok hospital which will hopefully shed more light on this all.

Carradine was perhaps best known as the Shaolin monk Caine on the TV show Kung Fu which ran from 1972 to 1975, but he also appeared in hundreds of other shows and movies including Gunsmoke, and Quentin Tarantino’s two-part Kill Bill, where he played the infamous Bill. In all, he has 222 IMDB listings, including six of which are in post-production. The last well-known movie he starred in was the sequel Crank: High Voltage. This incredible resume was similar to his legendary actor father John Carradine’s resume, who himself has 340 IMDB actor listings, including a short stint on his son’s Kung Fu.

Amazon is having a big Box Set Blowout, which has lots of great deals on DVD box sets, so I’ve listed several items that I thought might be of interest.

But first, let me tell you what just happens to be the Gold Box spotlight item of the day: The X-Files: The Complete Collector’s Edition, which you can get for only $123.99. That’s 62% off the regular price and let me tell you, I’ve have been waiting for this item to not only go on sale, but to even be available at all — most times you can’t even get this, so I’m thinking that I might just need to gift this item to myself. It’s just too good to pass up. This comprehensive box set includes all nine seasons of the television series, the original feature film Fight The Future — another typically hard to find item — plus, the Mythology Threads featurettes.

And speaking of The X-Files, it looks like they’re selling a 2-pack of both movies — Fight The Future and I Want To Believe — in Blu-ray for $39.99: The X-Files Movie 2-Pack [Blu-ray]. (By the way, there’s still a chance to win a DVD or Blu-ray copy of the recently released I Want To Believe in the Geeks of Doom X-Files Contest.)

Feel free to let me know what you think about these offers and if you’re planning on taking advantage of them! See list of noteworthy items here below.
