Actor David Carradine, 72, star of the TV series "Kung Fu" and Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" film was found dead in a hotel room in Bangkok according to ABC News. No word on whether it had anything to do with the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique, but Caine will be sorely missed.

Update: It is believed that Carradine's death was an apparent suicide, so our speculation about the Five Point thing can officially be deemed tasteless.
