David Carradine (Kwai Chang Kane) found dead in Thailand.

Poisoned by cream of sum yung guy?

Edited to add; for the youngsters on here he was the soft spoken white bloke that played a monk from Shaolin Temple in the 70's TV series Kung Fu.

The other soft spoken hippy was on The Old Grey Whistle Test.

Natural causes? Well if asphixiation bought about from dangling at the end of a rope, is natural, then I guess they're bang on the money.

For the benefit of our younger viewers he was "Bill" in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill"

Popping your clogs penniless in a Bangkok hotel at the age of 72.

That's just how I intend to go.

David Carradine found dead in Bangkok

"Kung Fu" and "Kill Bill" star David Carradine was found hung himself in a closet in a hotel room in Bangkok on Wednesday, Thai police said.

Police believed he committed suicide.

Carradine, 72, was in Bangkok to shoot his latest movie, Stretch, and stayed at a Suite Room 352 of the Park Nai Lert Hotel on Wireless Road since June 2.

The film crew were aware of his absence when they went to dine out at a restaurant on Sathorn Road on June 3.

Carradine did not show up at the dinner and the team could not reach him. They assumed that he took a rest because of his age.

It was a hotel's maid who opened his suite on Thursday at 10 am only to find Carradine in a closet. He was described as behind half naked.

Police investigation showed that he hung himself with a rope, the kind that is used with curtains.

Police said he was dead for not less than 12 hours and found no sign of fighting and assaults.

His personal manager, Chuck Binder, told BBC that the news was "shocking", adding: "He was full of life, always wanting to work... a great person."

Kung Fu Man

Aside from Quentin Tarantino's two-part "Kill Bill" in 2003 and 2004, Carradine was perhaps best known for his role as the fugitive half-Chinese Shaolin monk Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s easternwestern TV drama "Kung Fu". He also starred in Martin Scorsese's "Boxcar Bertha" in 1972, portrayed folksinger Woody Guthrie in "Bound for Glory" in 1976, acted in Ingmar Bergman's "The Serpent's Egg" in 1977 and co-starred with half brothers Keith Carradine and Robert Carradine in the 1980 western "The Long Riders".

His father was the noted actor John Carradine.

In Thai cinemas, Carradine was recently seen as a martial arts guru in the Rob Schneider comedy "Big Stan" and as a perverted elderly Chinese mobster in "Crank: High Voltage" starring Jason Statham.

That's what the BBC link originally said - it's now been edited.

Mind you, never let the truth get in the way of a good story :D
From the earlier link:

Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and genitals on Thursday morning.
Foul play? A hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and genitals just happened to find him?
