Woody Harrelson (1961 - )

Film DeathsEdit

  • Wag the Dog (1997) [Sergeant William Schumann]: Shot twice (off-screen) by Ed Morgan in Ed's store, after Ed finds Woody trying to rape Jennifer Manley; we hear the shots from off-screen as Dustin Hoffman states that Woody's all right (then corrects himself after the second shot).
  • The Thin Red Line (1998) [Sergeant Keck]: Fatally injured in an explosion when he tries to pull a grenade from his belt and only pulls the pin; he throws himself on the grenade to save the others in his unit.
  • 2012 (2009) [Charlie Frost]: Killed in an explosion when the Yellowstone Caldera erupts and a fireball hits near him. (Also in a cartoon that his character made, his character he voices, is eaten by a dinosaur).
  • Seven Psychopaths (2012) [Charlie]: Shot in the head with a shotgun by Sam Rockwell (causing Woody's head to explode), after Sam first shoots him in the neck with an arrow, in Sam's pitch of how the story should end. (Woody survives the movie in reality.)
  • The Duel (2016) [Abraham]: Shot in the head by Kimberly Hidalgo, as he was about to kill Liam Hemsworth. (as he's already dying from being shot in the shoulder/chest by Liam and from shock/blood loss after removing his foot that had also been crushed by Liam).
  • Triple 9 (2016) [Sergeant Detective Jeffrey Allen]: Possibly fatally wounded when Clifton Collins Jr. shoots him in the gut during a shootout in Clifton's car (and Woody kills him in return); the film ends on a freeze frame of Woody smiling after lighting a cigarette, leaving his fate ambiguous.
  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) [Willoughby]: Commits suicide by shooting himself in the head (with a bag over his head), after refusing to face his cancer diagnosis. His body is seen again when Harrelson's wife (Abbie Cornish) discovers him and again when his colleague arrive at the scene.

Television DeathsEdit

  • Bay Coven (1987 TV movie) [Slater]: Killed when he tries to use James Sikking 's jeep to drive to the ferry dock when the witches had sabotaged or used black magic to make it speed in reverse over a cliff where it explodes on impact.
