Film DeathsEdit

  • The Curse of the Living Corpse (1964) [Philip Sinclair]: Drowned in quicksand when Hugh Franklin knocks him into it, while Roy is trying to throw Candace Hilligoss into the quicksand. (Thanks to Stephen)
  • Sorcerer (1977) [Jackie Scanlon aka Juan Dominguez]: Shot to death off-screen when the mafia find him in South America.  We only hear a single gun shot as the finale score plays.  
  • All That Jazz (1979) [Joseph 'Joe' Gideon]: Dies following heart surgery in the hospital; his death is presented in a symbolic musical number/dream sequence, and his body is shown being zipped up in a body bag in the hospital morgue at the end of the number.
  • Jaws: The Revenge (1987) [Brody]: Aside from some flashbacks, Roy did not appear in the movie, but it was established that his character from the first two Jaws movies died of a heart attack between films.
  • Cohen and Tate (1989) [Cohen]: Commits suicide by shooting himself after being cornered by the police. (Thanks to Michael)
  • Plato's Run (1997) [Senarkian]: Possibly dies (off-screen) after he ends up stepping on a land mine and keeps his position to keep it from going off. Gary Busey decides to leave him there as revenge for killing Jeff Speakman.
  • Evasive Action (1998) [Enzo Marcelli]: Presumably executed off-camera (although he is still alive as the film ends, it is clear from an earlier conversation that if they are caught, it'll be a death sentence for him).
  • Chain of Command (2000) [President Cahill]: Killed by Michael Biehn. (Thanks to Gary)
  • Time Lapse (2001) [Agent La Nova]: Killed in an explosion. (Thanks to Gary)
  • Dark Honeymoon (2008) [Sam]: Stabbed in the stomach by Lindy Booth in the motel room. (It's later revealed that everything we've seen has been a lie told by Nick Cornish, and that Nick is the actual killer.)

TV DeathsEdit

  • The Diamond Hunters (2001) [Jacob van der Byl]: Dies in bed at home of lung cancer with daughter Alyssa Milano by his side.  (Thanks to Brian)
  • Third Watch: Judgment Day (2002) [Fyodor Chevchenko]: Shot to death by Skipp Sudduth, who then plants a gun on Roy's body to make it look like self-defense. (Thanks to Neil)
