  • That Was Then...This Is Now (1985) [Charlie Woods]: Shot in the head by pool hustlers. (Thanks to Fortza)
  • Glory (1989) [Sergeant Major John Rollins]: Killed off-screen while charging the Confederate fort; the scene ends with Morgan, Cary Elwes and the other soldiers running towards a series of deployed cannons, which then fire. Morgan's body is not shown among those being buried in a mass grave, most likely due to the cannons' destructive capabilities. (Thanks to Robert, The Grey Ghost, and Michael)

  • The Sum of All Fears (2002) [DCI William Cabot]: Dies of injuries restrained from a limo crash after a nuclear bomb that was installed by Alan Bates' men detonates nearby in a stadium (due to him being in the driver's section of the limo, he took more damage than James Cromwell who was in the passenger section and survived fine) he later dies while talking to Ben Affleck. (Thanks to Tal)
