Sam Waterston (1940 - )
- Savages (1972) [James, the Limping Man]: Commits suicide by drowning himself in the swimming pool during a party; his body is shown again periodically as other party guests swim around him without caring.
- Capricorn One (1978) [Colonel Peter Willis]: Killed (off-screen) by assassins after they catch him in the desert (after climbing a cliff). He manages to get off his flare signal in time.
- Heaven's Gate (Johnson County Wars) (1980) [Frank Canton]: Shot to death, along with his men, by Kris Kristofferson, after Sam and his men kill Jeff Bridges and Isabelle Huppert (historically, Frank Canton died on September 27, 1927).
- Amazing Stories: Mirror, Mirror (1986) [Jordan Manmouth]: Strangled in his bed by the demonic being (Tim Robbins) that Sam can only see as a reflection in mirrors. Moments later, Sam's body is taken over by the demon, and he commits suicide by throwing himself out the window as Helen Shaver looks on in horror.
- Lincoln (1988 mini-series) [Abraham Lincoln]: Shot in the head by Glenn Faigen at Ford's Theatre, while Sam and his wife (Mary Tyler Moore) are watching a play (I've never seen this mini-series, so I don't know if his death is shown).
- The Newsroom: Oh Shenandoah (2014) [Charlie Skinner]: Dies from a heart attack (off screen); the scene cuts from Sam falling over to Jeff Daniels being informed of his death by Emily Mortimer. The next episode takes place at his funeral.
