John P. Ryan in Avenging Force

John P. Ryan (1936 - 2007)

Film DeathsEdit

  • Runaway Train (1985) [Warden Ranken]: Killed (off-screen) along with Jon Voight in a train crash after Jon disconnects the engine from the rest of the train in order to save Eric Roberts and Rebecca De Mornay. The movie ends before the actual crash; we only see him trap inside the engine as it heads towards its destruction, but the implication of his fate is obvious.

TV DeathsEdit

  • The F.B.I.: The Swindler (1969) [William Quine]: Accidently falls to his death when he jumped across his motel roof to another building and slipped while hanging onto the edge while being chased by the FBI.
  • Miami Vice: The Cell Within (1989) [Jake Manning]: Shot to death by several MDPD officers as a suicide-by-cop. He dies while talking to Philip Michael Thomas.
