Miller & Stentz Catch "The Fall Guy"

According to reports, writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz ("Thor", "X-Men: First Class") are developing a new screenplay based on the action/adventure, stunt man TV series "The Fall Guy" for the husband-wife team of DreamWorks' producers Walter F. Parkes ("Gladiator") and Laurie MacDonald ("Men In Black III").

ABC's "The Fall Guy", created by Glen A. Larson ("Battlestar Galactica") originally aired November 4, 1981 to May 2, 1986, starring actors Lee Majors, Douglas Barr and Heather Thomas :

"...'Colt Seavers', a Hollywood stunt man who moonlights as a bounty hunter, uses his physical skills and knowledge of stunt effects to capture fugitives and criminals, accompanied by his cousin and stuntman-in-training 'Howie Munson' and female stunt performer 'Jody Banks'..."

Typically, each episode would start with a voice-over introduction from Seavers explaining the precarious life of a Hollywood stuntman, how he is unable to make a full-time living from stunt work and forced to moonlight as a bounty hunter.

Carradine's Ex Calls For Thorough Police Investigation
David Carradine's third wife is convinced foul play is responsible for her husband's death in Thailand - and there are clues about the actor's demise in the way he was bound and hanged.

Gail Jensen has urged investigators to look at the evidence in the hotel room closet, where Carradine's dead, naked body was found by a maid last week.

Like many friends of the star, Jensen believes Carradine was killed before he could expose the truth about Asian warlords - a mission the actor felt was all his.

Jensen, who ended her nine year marriage to Carradine in 1997, tells Radar Online she's sure her ex-husband's death was a cover-up.

She says, "Killing himself with a yellow band, now that means something and only the Bangkok police can find that one out."

Jensen insists a decade-old grudge is responsible for the tragedy: "He got in touch with the wrong people."

An initial autopsy report carried out by Thai coroners reveals Carradine died from a sudden lack of oxygen; his body showed no signs of struggle. An independent autopsy has ruled out suicide.

Carradine's Third Wife Details Auto-Erotic Past
David Carradine's third wife Gail Jensen has stepped forward to echo accounts of his allegedly unconventional sexual history, insisting the late actor had a penchant for auto-erotica throughout their marriage.

The Kill Bill star, 72, was found hanging in his Bangkok hotel room on Thursday; some reports suggest he committed suicide, while local police believe he died accidentally as he took part in a dangerous sex game involving auto-erotic asphyxiation - where victims achieve heightened sexual pleasure by restricting their air supply.

Gail Jensen, who ended her nine year marriage to Carradine in 1997, claims the actor would spend days planning to construct elaborate sexual devices he used to tie himself up.

Speaking in an interview at the weekend (begs06Jun09), Jensen said: "David was pretty strange. He would like to get tied up. He would tie himself up and I would walk in and see him and say, 'Oh my God, David, you got to be kidding me' - and I would (turn around and) walk out. I would leave him to his own devices. He liked to be tied up. And he could tie himself up... He spent days planning a different feature. He would go to a hardware store and buy the stuff."

Just last week (begs01Jun09), TheSmokingGun.com published legal documents from Carradine's fourth wife Marina Anderson, detailing the actor's "potentially deadly" sex habits. Carradine's former lawyer and longterm friend Vicki Roberts has called Anderson's claims "extremely inflammatory and completely false".

The actor's family requested the FBI's involvement last week (ends05Jun09), urging authorities to assist the Thai police investigation to prove the star had no intention of killing himself.

An initial autopsy report carried out by Thai coroners reveals Carradine died from a sudden lack of oxygen; his body showed no signs of struggle. Doctors in Carradine's native U.S. are expected to examine the actor's body this week (begs08Jun09) after his remains were flown back at the weekend.

The family of "Kill Bill" star David Carradine has reached out to the FBI and a private forensics expert to help untangle the bizarre circumstances behind the veteran actor's death last week in a Bangkok hotel room. The family is also threatening to sue any media outlets that reprint a gruesome crime scene photo from his death.

The Associated Press reported that lawyer Mark Geragos (who is also representing Chris Brown in his assault case) said that his client, Keith Carradine, David Carradine's half brother, met with the FBI on Friday and filed reports that could lead to a separate inquiry by the bureau into Carradine's death.

The family also wants a private autopsy from forensics expert Dr. Michael Baden, to determine whether another person could have been involved in Carradine's death.
