Bob Hoskins in 'Outlaw'
Bob Hoskins (1942 - )
Pennies from Heaven (1978) [Arthur Parker]: Executed by hanging. He appears at the end of the mini-series, explaining that he was released, but it's strongly implied that the "happy ending" is only a fantasy. (See also Steve Martin in the 1981 remake.) (Thanks to Constantine)

The Long Good Friday (1980) [Harold Shand]: Shot to death (off-screen) by Pierce Brosnan; the movie ends with Pierce holding the gun on Bob as they drive away. (Thanks to Arben and ND)

Brazil (1985) [Spoor]: Drowned in sewage, along with Derrick O'Connor, after Robert De Niro connects the air-intake tubes on their containment suits to a waste pipe. (Thanks to Tommy)

Mussolini and I (1985) [Benito Mussolini]: Executed (off-screen), along with Barbara De Rossi, by a firing squad of partisans. We only see a scene of Susan Sarandon hearing the news on a radio broadcast.

Performance: The Changeling (1993) [De Flores]: Commits suicide by stabbing himself, after he stabs Elizabeth McGovern.

Den of Lions (2003) [Darius Paskevic]: Shot repeatedly by Russian police. (Thanks to Arben)

Stay (2005) [Dr. Leon Patterson]: Killed in a car crash, along with Kate Burton, Ryan Gosling, and Elizabeth Reaser; it initially appears that Bob survived the crash, but it's later revealed that everything after the accident is only occuring in Ryan's mind in Ryan's dying moments. (Thanks to ND)

Outlaw (2007) [Walter Lewis]: Shot repeatedly in the chest and stomach by Dave Legeno in Bob's home. (Thanks to Arben and ND)

A Christmas Carol (2009; animated) [Fezziwig/Old Joe]: Voicing a dual role, "Fezziwig" dies (off-screen) many years before the story begins; he only appears in a flashback when the Ghost of Christmas Past takes Scrooge (voiced by Jim Carrey) back to witness his past. ("Old Joe" survives the movie.) (Thanks to Tommy)
