We are still waiting for more details, but it has been reported the Ed McMahon has passed away today, according to his agent. He died peacefully in his sleep at UCLA Medical Center a little after midnight (Central time).

When you think of Will Ferrell, you’ll likely think of Saturday Night Live re-runs or quirky comedies. Now the actor is adding another notch to his comedic resume with his new line of sunscreens, all for a good cause: scholarships for cancer survivors. The product comes complete with SPF 30 and quirky labeling that made our staffers blush.
While we can’t vouch for Will’s products—they weren’t part of our testing—we like the subtext: Don’t forget to use sunscreen—at least 30 SPF—to prevent skin cancer. In our recent survey, two-thirds of respondents said they used sunscreen at least occasionally, and women were more likely than men to use it frequently. Respondents were less likely to use it during non-beach, non-swimming activities such as running, and were more diligent about putting it on their kids than themselves.
‘Kill Bill’ star David Carradine, who was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room, may have died from a botched attempt at auto-erotic asphyxiation, says Thai police. The martial arts icon, whose ‘Kung Fu’ TV series reflected his signature combination of slam-bang action and calm reflection, was discovered hanging naked in the wardrobe with a cord around his neck and penis.
The cause of his death appeared to be suicide at first but now the police believe that the star would have died while performing a sexual act on himself which accidentally led to asphyxiation.
“There was a rope tied around his neck and another rope tied at his sex organ, and the two ropes were tied together and hung in the closet,” Sky News quoted Police commander Lieutenant General Worapong Siewpreecha as saying.
“Under these circumstances we cannot be sure that he committed suicide but he may have died from masturbation,” Siewpreecha added.
