David Carradine is dead. For some reason this bugs me quite a bit.
Circle of Iron is one of my favorite movies, and it's a vague one. I'm fairly sure most of the people who read the previous sentence have not seen it. But he was in it, playing all the major characters but being nearly unrecognizable until one reached the credits. He did a great job, and of course there was his portrayal in Kill Bill as Bill, which everybody knows and loves.
Right now they're saying he hung himself. But seeing as he made it all the way to 72 and was in the middle of a movie, I'm wondering...
Perhaps the bottle and bad news happened at the same time and he figured he would just exit, having had a good batch of years to his name.
Either way, RIP. We shall drink sake to your name, Caine.
