Vincent D'Onofrio in 'Full Metal Jacket'
Vincent D'Onofrio (1959 - )
Ex-Mr. Greta Scacchi
Full Metal Jacket (1987) [Pvt. Leonard 'Gomer Pyle' Lawrence]: Commits suicide by shooting himself in the mouth in the bathroom (after shooting R. Lee Ermey), while Matthew Modine looks on in shock.

Miami Vice: The Afternoon Plane (1987) [Leon Wolf]: Shot to death in a shoot-out with Maria McDonald. (Thanks to Robert)

Naked Tango (1991) [Cholo]: Shot to death by police while dancing one last dance with the mortally wounded Mathilda May. (Thanks to Debbe)

The Player (1992) [David Kahane]: Drowned by Tim Robbins in a puddle in an alley.

Salt on Our Skin (Desire) (1992) [Gavin]: Dies of cancer (off-screen). (Thanks to Debbe)

Strange Days (1995) [Officer Burton Steckler]: Shot repeatedly by police when he aims his gun at Ralph Fiennes in a crowded city square.

Feeling Minnesota (1996) [Sam Clayton]: Suffocated by Dan Aykroyd, while Keanu Reeves and Cameron Diaz look on in horror. (Thanks to Jesse)

The Whole Wide World (1996) [Robert E. Howard]: Commits suicide (off-screen) by shooting himself in the head; we only see a scene of Renee Zellweger being informed of his death.

Men in Black (1997) [Edgar]: Killed by an insect-like alien that takes over his body.

Homicide: Life on the Street: The Subway (1997) [John Lange]: Run over by a subway train after being pushed onto the tracks; he is not instantly killed, and the entire episode deals with his ordeal being pinned under the subway car (as any attempt to free him will only kill him sooner). I believe his actual death occurred off-screen (but it's been so long since I've seen the episode that I can't recall for certain.)

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1998) [Mr. Blue]: Commits suicide by electrocuting himself on the subway's third rail, rather than be arrested by Edward James Olmos. (I haven't seen this version, but I have seen Robert Shaw's death in the 1974 version.) (Thanks to Debbe)

The Velocity of Gary (1998) [Valentino]: Dies of AIDS-related complications in the hospital, shortly after Salma Hayek and Thomas Jane take a break from their bedside vigil. (Thanks to Megan and Jesse)

Spanish Judges (Ruthless Behaviour) (1999) [Max]: Shot repeatedly in the chest and stomach by Matthew Lillard, then is impaled on a large sculpture when he falls back.

The Thirteenth Floor (1999) [Jason Whitney/Jerry Ashton]: Playing a dual role in two virtual-reality planes, "Jerry" is run over by a car in the 1930s simulation. "Jason" is shot by Craig Bierko. (Thanks to Betty and PortsGuy)

The Cell (2000) [Carl Rudolph Stargher]: Dies some time after going into a coma following a seizure, while Jennifer Lopez hurries to escape after being projected inside his mind.

Impostor (2002) [Major D.H. Hathaway]: Killed in an explosion when Gary Sinise's android duplicate self-destructs. (Thanks to Jesse)

The Salton Sea (2002) [Pooh-Bear]: Shot in the back of the head by Anthony LaPaglia after Anthony comes up behind the oblivious Vincent while Vincent is preparing some methedrine.
