The cause of death is not yet known, but sources believe he died in his sleep.[2]

Acting credits[edit]

Paul and his twin brother Peter Paul were collectively known as "The Barbarian Brothers", as they both starred in the 1987 film titled The Barbarians.

They both appeared in an episode of Knight Rider entitled "Knight of the Drones".[3]

David and Peter had a small part in the Oliver Stone movie Natural Born Killers in which they are in a bodybuilding public gym milieu being interviewed by Robert Downey Jr.'s character, but the scene ended up on the cutting room floor. Their part can be found on the director's cut of the film, in which director Stone says of the excised Barbarian Brothers scene "they're overacting, and it's my fault."[4]
