Murphy’s Law – The tragic death of David Carradine

Joel Murphy Loyal readers, I need to ask you all a favor – if I am ever found dead in a Bangkok hotel room – naked with ropes tied around places they shouldn’t be – please don’t pry into the circumstances surrounding my death. It’s probably best

Murphy’s Law – Do it for Mal

Joel Murphy “I’ll tell you this. No one has ever shown the kind of faith in me that Joss Whedon has shown, in both giving me a lead on his sci-fi show Firefly and in letting me play a villain for the very first time. No one’s
