Film Deaths:[edit | edit source]

  • The Fly (1986) [Seth Brundle]: Head blown off/decapitated with a shotgun blast to the head when Geena Davis shoots him as a mercy killing after he becomes a humanoid fly (then becomes fused to his teleportation machine). (For the original, see David Hedison.)
  • The Tall Guy (1989) [Dexter King]: In the play within the film musical adaptation of The Elephant Man, Jeff (playing John Merrick) suffocates in his sleep; he dies as other cast members sing him off to heaven (Jeff survives the film in reality) (Played for comic effect).
  • Hideaway (1995) [Hatch]: Drowned when his car goes off a cliff into the river (as he swerves to avoid an on coming truck). He is later brought back to life by an expirmental procedure performed by Alfred Molina.
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) [Deputy Kovacs]: Killed (off-camera) by Willem Dafoe, after Willem catches up to Jeff in a museum and slams a door shut on his hand, severing several of his fingers; we hear Jeff's screams from behind it before Willem exits. His body is later seen in a crime scene report on his death, having been found in a sarcophagus.

Television Death:[edit | edit source]

  • The Colbert Report (June 29, 2009) [Jeff Goldblum]: Falls from a cliff while in New Zealand (off screen); his death is mentioned in a news report Stephen Colbert plays (while Goldblum is in the studio) and Goldblum later ascends to Heaven through the exit door after delivering a eulogy about himself. (This is in reference to a faulty news report about his death that occurred in real life.) (Played for comic effect.)
