The late David Carradine was getting plenty of work for a 72-year-old actor.

He has more than five completed projects in the pipeline but who knew one would pop up so soon?

Carradine is scheduled to guest star on the Fox drama ‘Mental‘ this coming Tuesday.

The network says they won’t pull the episode, despite the actor’s shocking death this week, according to The Washington Post.

Carradine plays a ‘Mental’ patient who’s a famous professor, author and philosopher that falls into a catatonic state after being hit by lightning.

Well, that won’t be disturbing to watch at all.
