Michael Madsen of Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs,” “Kill Bill” on suicide watch

Hollywoodnews.com: Quentin Tarantino is an awesome director and doesn’t need any kind of curse associated with the actors from his films. To date, Chris Penn, former “Reservoir Dogs” actor died young of an enlarged heart at age 40.

David Carradine, 72, aka Bill from “Kill Bill” died as a result of autoerotic asphyxiation. And we’re not counting Brittany Murphy who was in one third of Tarantino’s “Sin City.”

Now, Michael Madsen, 52, of both “Kill Bill” and “Reservoir Dogs” is on suicide watch after a nine-day bender in U.K. He was found knocked out on his hotel doorstep according to The Sun. Madsen is across the pond shooting a horror film.

A source at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro tells the Sun: “He was held under Common Law rules on mental health. If he had attempted to leave he would have been sectioned. He was a high-risk patient and was on suicide watch.”

Hotel observers recall “He (Madsen) was mixing his drinks with pills, but no one knew what they were for. He angered some guests by urinating in the car park. When he was found slumped on the doorstep it was hardly a surprise.”

Others told how Madsen spent his days staggering around in his pajamas.

Madsen’s favorite drink: a bottle of red and white wine with breakfast.

While none of Tarantino’s actors ended their lives on his watch – it’s just a weird trend that has been starting. Quentin – call an exorcist and fast.

    So you have met the guy then? Sounds like an absolute a**hole you say?
    I suggest you have a look at his Wikipedia entry for some impartial information before making neanderthal-like comments.
    It is obvious who the a**hole is buddy.

    Kill Bill stars have no luck. First Carradine in Bangkok, now Michael Madsen. Carradine’s death is still a mystery to some. His ex-wife, Marina Anderson has written a book about it called “David Carradine: The Eye of My Tornado”. Let’s hope Madsen doesn’t meet a similar tragic end.

    It’s not Tarantino’s Sin City. It’s Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City. Well, technically, it’s Frank Miller’s Sin City, however, Tarantino only guest directed one tiny scene. Robert and Miller directed 99% of the movie.
    I love Tarantino dearly. But please, don’t give him credit where it isn’t due.
