Ryan Gosling in 'The United States of Leland'
Ryan Gosling (1980 - )
The Believer (2001) [Danny Balint]: Killed in an explosion when his own bomb goes off in the temple, after he tells everybody else to get out. (Thanks to ND)

Murder by Numbers (2002) [Richard Haywood]: Falls to his death from a collapsing balcony at the end of a struggle with Sandra Bullock. (Thanks to Paige, Charm, Nilescu, Tommy, and ND)

The United States of Leland (2003) [Leland P. Fitzgerald]: Stabbed to death by Chris Klein in the exercise yard of the juvenile facility. The scene cuts to black just as Chris is about to stab him; his body is shown lying on the ground when the scene resumes. (Thanks to Tommy and ND)

Stay (2005) [Henry Letham]: Fatally injured in a car accident; the entire movie turns out to be occuring in Ryan's mind in his dying moments. In his "dream world," he commits suicide by shooting himself in the mouth; the movie then snaps back to reality to show him dying at the scene of the crash, as Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts attempt to save him. (Thanks to Nilescu, Tommy, and ND)

Drive (2011) [Driver]: Possibly mortally wounded when Albert Brooks stabs him in the stomach; the movie ends with Ryan driving away after the stabbing, leaving his fate ambiguous. (Thanks to Tommy and ND)

The Place Beyond the Pines (2012) [Luke Glanton]: Falls to his death after being shot by Bradley Cooper, causing Ryan to fall back through the window. (Thanks to Tommy and ND)

Only God Forgives (2013) [Julian Thompson]: Presumably dies of shock/blood loss (off-screen) after Vithaya Pansringarm cuts off Ryan's arms; his death is not shown, but is strongly implied. (Thanks to Tommy)
