  • Manifesto (A Night of Love) (1988) [Emile]: Accidentally hits his head on the floor when he falls off the bed during horseplay with Camilla Soeberg; she later rolls his body up in a rug and gets Eric Stoltz to help her get rid of the body.
  • The Saint (1997) [Ivan Tretiak]: Although Rade survives the final film, an alternate ending (seen here) has him being shot repeatedly by his son (Valeriy Nikolaev).

  • Mission: Impossible II (2000) [Dr. Nekhorvich]: Hit on the throat and neck snapped by Dougray Scott (who was disguised as Tom Cruise, and thus was actually played by Tom in this scene) on board the airplane.
