Film DeathsEdit

  • Get Shorty (1995) [Ray 'Bones' Barboni]: Presumably shot to death in a shoot-out in an airport; as soon as Dennis opens the airport locker, it cuts to a film-within-the-film re-creation of the incident, with Harvey Keitel playing Dennis' part.
  • You Kill Me (2007) [Edward O'Leary]: Shot in the chest by Ben Kingsley.
