Geoffrey Rush in 'Quills'
Geoffrey Rush (1951 - )
Mr. Jane Menelaus
Les Miserables (1998) [Javert]: Commits suicide by drowning himself in the river; we see him jumping in after handcuffing himself.

House on Haunted Hill (1999) [Stephen H. Price]: Rapidly decomposes after a supernatural force consumes him. (It's been a while since I've seen this movie, so my memory is vague.)

Mystery Men (1999) [Casanova Frankenstein]: His body is distorted beyond recognition and finally disintegrated when he falls into his own super-weapon.

Quills (2000) [The Marquis de Sade]: Commits suicide in his cell by swallowing Joaquin Phoenix's crucifix, choking himself to death. (This bears no resemblance to the actual historic facts of the Marquis de Sade's death.)

Frida (2002) [Leon Trotsky]: Killed (off-camera) with a pick-axe by Antonio Zavala in Geoffrey's study; we only see blood splash onto the page that Geoffrey is writing.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) [Barbossa]: Shot in the chest by Johnny Depp in the pirates' cave; he dies shortly afterwards when Orlando Bloom lifts the curse and removes Geoffrey's immortality while the bullet is still in his chest. (Thanks to Betty)
