Film Deaths

  • Glory (1989) [Major Cabot Forbes]: Possibly killed (off-screen) while charging the Confederate fort; the scene ends with the soldiers running towards a cannon, which then fires. Cary's body is not shown among those being buried in a mass grave, so it's unconfirmed whether or not he survived the battle. (Thanks to Grey Ghost and Michel)
  • The Jungle Book (Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book) (1994) [Captain William Boone]: Eaten alive by a giant python Kaa in a subterranean pool after being dragged beneath the water (as King Louie and the other monkeys look on). (Thanks to Gary and ND)
  • Twister (1996) [Dr. Jonas Miller]: Killed in an explosion when his vehicle is picked up by the tornado and then thrown to the ground. (Thanks to Gossamer and Caroline)
  • The Informant (1997) [Lieutenant David Ferris]: Killed in an explosion by a bomb planted on a motorcycle. (Thanks to Gary)
  • Kiss the Girls (1997) [Detective Nick Ruskin a.k.a. Casanova]: Shot in the head by Morgan Freeman (firing through a carton of milk to eliminate the muzzle flash) when Cary threatens to blow up the gas-filled house. (Thanks to Gary, Michael, and Gossamer)
  • Race Against Time (2000) [Burke]: Shot in the chest by Sarah Wynter after Cary tries to shoot her, on top of falling through an elevator roof. (Thanks to Gary and ND)
  • Shadow of the Vampire (2000) [Fritz Arno Wagner]: Neck snapped by Willem Dafoe, after Cary shoots Willem repeatedly to no effect (during a fight with Cary, Dafoe and Udo Kier) as John Malkovich films it. His body is later seen slumped in a corner by a bed as John talks to him (in denial that he is dead). (Fritz actually died in in a traffic collision in 1958 as his colleague F. W. Murnau had 27 years earlier) (Thanks to ND)
  • The Cat's Meow (2001) [Thomas H. Ince]: Shot in the back of the head by Edward Herrmann, who had mistaken him for Eddie Izzard (his body is later seen as Edward arranges the scene to make it appear he died of a heart defect). (Thanks to Gary)
  • Comic Book Villains (2002) [Carter]: Shot repeatedly in the chest by Donal Logue while Cary is lying on his back on the ground; we hear their conversation and the gunshots over the opening scene, and the shooting itself is shown later on when the movie "catches up" to that point. (Thanks to Curtis)

TV Deaths

  • The Riverman (2004 TV) [Ted Bundy]: Executed (off-screen) in the electric chair; his death is mentioned in the voice-over narration. (Thanks to PortsGuy)
