Cuba Gooding Jr. (1968 - )

Film Deaths:[]

  • Dirty (2005) [Salim Adel]: Shot in the back of the head with a shotgun by one of Robert LaSardo’s cohorts (Taboo, Cesar Garcia, Frank Alvarez, Robert 'Lil Rob' Flores, or Edward Meza) as he is sitting in a car having encountered Clifton Collins Jr.’s ghost (his body is later seen as Clifton observes the hit squad drive away)
  • Wrong Turn at Tahoe (2009) [Joshua]: Possibly mortally wounded when he's shot in the stomach in a shoot-out with Leonor Varela; the movie ends with Cuba holding a gun to Miguel Ferrer's head as Miguel is driving Cuba to the hospital. Although their fates are unconfirmed, Cuba's dialogue implies that he intends to kill Miguel even if it means his own death.
  • Summoned (2013) [Detective John Callendar]: Strangled to death (off-screen) by Tim Abell. His hanging body is later seen when Bailey Chase discovers him.

Television Deaths:[]

  • Daybreak (1993; TV movie) [Torch]: Dies of the mutant AIDS virus, although he is still alive when the film ends his condition is deemed terminal (so I thought I'd list this just in case).
  • The Tuskegee Airmen (1995; TV movie) [Billy Roberts]: Shot when German fighters fire on his plane; he dies of his wounds before the plane crashes. (Thanks to Michael)
