Rene Auberjonois (1940 - 2019)

Film DeathsEdit

  • Walker (1987) [Major Sigfried Hennington]: Bleeds to death after his arm is shot off by American soldiers, while the Americans are being evacuated from Nicaragua.
  • The Ballad of Little Jo (1993) [Streight Hollander, Peddler Killed by Soldiers]: I haven't seen this movie, but the IMDB's identification of his character gives away his fate.
  • Edgar Allan Poe: Terror of the Soul (1995) [Fortunato]: Suffocated after John Heard seals him up inside an alcove, in the "Cask of Amontillado" segment.

TV DeathsEdit

  • Hart to Hart: Max in Love (1979) [Donald Springfield]: Possibly killed in a car crash after Robert Wagner shoots out Rene's windshield and causes him to flip his car. (It's not definitely established whether or not the crash was fatal, but I'll list it just in case.) (Thanks to PortsGuy)
  • Eerie, Indiana: Zombies in P.J.'s (1992) [The Donald]: Falls into Hell after banging on the floor repeatedly causing a human-shaped hole.
  • Justice League: Hearts and Minds part I (2003) [Galius-Zed]: Killed along with Michael Rosenbaum in battle with the Legion of the Third Eye.
  • Saving Grace: Have a Seat, Earl (2008) [Father Patrick Murphy]: Killed (off-screen) by Dean Norris. (There is also an earlier dream sequence in which he is shot in the head by Holly Hunter.) (Thanks to PortsGuy)

Video Game DeathsEdit

  • Soul Reaver 2 (2001) [Janos Audron]: Heart torn out by a gang of vampire hunters led by Michael Bell - as Michael's future self looks on in horror. (Note: This death is only temporary, as Rene only remains dead as long as his heart is disconnected from his body, and is eventually restored later in the series.)
  • Fallout: New Vegas (2010) [Mr House]: Assassinated by the player character if they choose to work for any of the other factions. The player has the option of shooting his body, sabotaging his life-support equipment to electrocute him, or exposing him to airborne contaminants and leaving him to die from infections over the course of a year. Should the player decide to remain loyal to him, Rene ultimately survives the game.
