Apparently David Carradine was found dead today in Bangkok in his hotel room.
Not much of a filmography, to be honest, and I wasn't a big fan of the Kung-fu series (or the sequel).
But ever single minute he appears in Kill Bill is absolutely memorable.

“Not only are the Make Way for Ducklings loved by everyone, but they are public art,” Mayor Thomas M. Menino said in a statement. “This act is not a prank, it is a crime. We would strongly encourage anyone with information to please come forward to assist with Pack’s safe return.”
It's not the first time the sculpture has been hit.
In 1987, when the ducks were first placed in the garden, Quack was taken before the cement even dried. In 1988, Mack was stolen, and in 1992 Quack was taken again. That time, his theft caused such an outcry that buttons reading "Bring Quack Back" were sold to raise money for his replacement.
Jack, the eldest of Mrs. Mallard's eight children, has been stolen twice: He was cut from his family in 1995 and in 1999, thought in the second case he was later found under a desk at a Boston College library.If caught, the perpetrator could face larceny charges for the theft of public art. Officer Michael, from the children's book, and the entire Boston Police Department are encouraging anyone with information about Pack to call the District A-1 detectives at 617-343-4248. People can also leave anonymous information by calling CrimeStoppers at 1 (800) 494-TIPS or texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463).
