Actor David Carradine was found dead in a Thailand hotel room yesterday, and police said it was a possible suicide. He was 72.

Carradine was perhaps best known as Caine in the seventies television series “Kung Fu,” and had seen a resurgence in recent years as the title character in Quentin Tarrantino’s “Kill Bill” movies.

KC's View:
My favorite Carradine performance, by far, was as Woody Guthrie in “Bound For Glory” (1976), the Hal Ashby-directed biopic. There were no gimmicks to the performance – it was just simple and honest.
