Kevin Spacey in 'L.A. Confidential'

Kevin Spacey (1959 - )

Film DeathsEdit

  • Outbreak (1995) [Major Casey Schuler]: Dies after accidentally being exposed to the deadly virus. He is shown lying in bed in the final stages of the illness, while talking to Rene Russo, but his actual death occurs off-screen.
  • A Bug's Life (1998; animated) [Hopper]: Playing the voice of a grasshopper, Spacey is eaten alive by baby birds (Chris Brian) after a mother bird picks him up.  We only hear Kevin screaming and closing in on the middle chick's mouth.
  • American Beauty (1999) [Lester Burnham]: Shot in the back of the head by Chris Cooper while sitting at the kitchen table. We only see the gun being put to Kevin's head, then see a splash of blood on the wall. His body is shown afterwards when Thora Birch and Wes Bentley run downstairs and discover him.
  • Beyond the Sea (2004) [Bobby Darin]: Dies of blood poisoning during heart surgery; the film ends with Spacey singing a duet with a younger version of himself (William Ullrich) in the afterlife.
  • Horrible Bosses (2011) [Dave Harken]: In a dream sequence, Kevin falls to his death after Jason Bateman throws him out of the office window. (Kevin survives the film in reality.) (Played for comic effect.)
  • All the Money in the World (2017) [John Paul Getty Jr.]: Dies of heart attack. His death is later confirmed when Michelle Williams is informed of his death. (Note: Even though Christopher Plummer replaced Kevin in the final film, this counts as one of his deaths since he had filmed all of his scenes, including this one, beforehand, with at least two shots of the actor appearing in the final film).
  • Billionaire Boys Club (2018) [Ron Levin]: Shot in the head by Bokeem Woodbine during a robbery as Ansel Elgort watches in shock.

TV DeathsEdit

  • Jimmy Kimmel Live (March 2, 2014) [Ameowadeus]: Poisoned when Christoph Waltz puts poison in his cat food, in a parody of Tom Hulce's death in Amadeus. (Kevin is in a giant cat suit for the part.) (Played for comic effect.)
  • House of Cards: Chapter 66 (2018) [Frank Underwood]: While Spacey didn't appear in this episode or the entire season due to the allegations against him. However, it is confirmed his character Frank died in his sleep from unknown reasons, but it's heavily implied he might have been murdered.

Video Game DeathsEdit

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (2014) [Jonathan Irons]: Falls to his death when Troy Baker severs his prosthetic left arm Kevin was holding on, causing him to fall from the top of the building.
