Claim to fame:
"David Carradine is probably best known for his role as "Kwai Chang Caine" in the 1970's television show Kung Fu--a series that was originally supposed to star Bruce Lee. Studio heads felt Lee's English skills weren't up to the role, and Carradine rocketed to pop culture fame." --James Hom
Where are they now?
"Carradine revised his 70's character into a 90's new age master in Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Known on the Web as KF:TLC, the syndicated show portrayed Carradine as the same-named grandson of the Caine that roamed the Old West; still a Zen priest, but this time Dad to a big-city cop (played by Chris Potter). KF:TLC was cancelled after a 4-year run, but can still be seen on cable. And, a very vocal fan contingent is still working toward bringing the series back. We wish them the best of luck! Carradine's still acting, mostly in small-screen movies for cable and video. He's also a busy writer/composer, with more than 60 songs and numerous screenplays to his credit." --James Hom May, 04: Kill Bill. Need we say more?
