Yesterday actor David Carradine was found dead in his Bangkok hotel, following an apparent suicide by hanging. (Note to Nicolas Cage: this is how you make Bangkok Dangerous not by making another shitty film). Carradine, star of such classics as Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror and My Suicide (was he just attempting to remake this film as a one man show?), was in Thailand to film a movie. Some have speculated Carradine was indulging in auto-erotic asphyxiation, and Dr. Greenbaumberg and the Thai Police are reporting that Carradine had a rope tied around his genitals, not sure how Dr. Greenbaumberg knew that . . . SoD prefers to speculate that he was not choking himself while using his very private kung fu grip.
Instead we postulate that Carradine was simply emulating his idol, Jonathan Brandis . . . the third star of SeaQuest DSV, after Roy Scheider and Darwin the Dolphin. So here is to you David Carradine, I’ll shed a tear for you every time I watch Side Kicks.
