  • Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Prisoners (1985) [Jack Porter]: In this variation on the Desperate Hours theme, directed by Christopher Crowe (who scripted Fear a decade later), Yaphet is gunned down by police while resisting arrest.
  • Homicide: The Movie (2000 TV) [Al 'Gee' Giardello]: Dies in the hospital (off-screen) after having been shot by Eamonn Walker at a political rally much earlier in the movie; we learn of his death when Max Perlich comes in and informs the others. The movie ends with an epilogue scene of Yaphet in the afterlife with Jon Polito and Daniel Baldwin.
