“David Carradine is probably best known for his role as “Kwai Chang Caine” in the 1970’s television show Kung Fu–a series that was originally supposed to star Bruce Lee. Studio heads felt Lee’s English skills weren’t up to the role, and Carradine rocketed to pop culture fame.” –James Hom

Where are they now?

“Carradine revised his 70’s character into a 90’s new age master in Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Known on the Web as KF:TLC, the syndicated show portrayed Carradine as the same-named grandson of the Caine that roamed the Old West; still a Zen priest, but this time Dad to a big-city cop (played by Chris Potter). KF:TLC was cancelled after a 4-year run, but can still be seen on cable. And, a very vocal fan contingent is still working toward bringing the series back. We wish them the best of luck! Carradine’s still acting, mostly in small-screen movies for cable and video. He’s also a busy writer/composer, with more than 60 songs and numerous screenplays to his credit.” –James Hom May, 04: Kill Bill. Need we say more?

    Yes, we never updated the story. David Carradine, was found nude and dead in a closet in a hotel room in Bangkok, Thailand. He was there filming the movie Stretch.

    Speculation says it was suicide, although his manager disputes it. Other signs point to autoerotic asphyxiation.
