|The Getaway (1994) [Frank Hansen]: Shot in the side by Michael Madsen while riding in a car with him, then pushed out of the moving car. (Thanks to Tal)
The Fifteen Minute Hamlet (1995) [Bernardo/Horatio/Laertes]: As "Laertes," he is presumably slashed with a poisoned sword in a swordfight with Austin Pendleton. (I haven't seen this short film, but it's a condensed parody of the Shakespeare play.)
The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) [Freddy Miles]: Bludgeoned to death with a marble bust by Matt Damon in Matt's hotel room; Matt then carries his body out to the car and drives it into the sea.
Red Dragon (2002) [Freddy Lounds]: Burned to death when Ralph Fiennes sets him on fire after a long period of torture; we see his flaming body rolling down the street in a wheelchair afterwards.
Cold Mountain (2003) [Reverend Veasey]: Shot to death during a battle between the home guard and a group of Union soldiers, while Philip is shackled to Jude Law on the chain gang.
Empire Falls (2005) [C.B. Whiting/Charley Mayne]: Commits suicide by shooting himself in the head by his gazebo, several years in the past; he appears as a ghost to
Ed Harris throughout the mini-series. (Thanks to Stephen)
Mission: Impossible III (M:I:III) (2006) [Owen Davian]: Run over by a truck when Tom Cruise places him in its path at the end of a struggle. (Thanks to Eric, Matthew, Patrick and Dave)
