MOVIE STARS THAT DIE ON SCREEN…

Obviously, spoilers throughout….

If you don’t want to know, then don’t read any further.

I’ve thought a lot about this since I began viewing films as a tiny girl. Why is it that some prominent performers portray characters that die…ALL THE TIME???

Personally, I can’t think of anything that’s creepier. I wouldn’t want to play anyone that met their demise unless it was a truly exceptional part. Like a real person that was incredibly interesting.

But PREMIERE has a list of great actors (all men…) that have died for their art consistently. I don’t think that I’ve ever seen an article that explored this fully.

So I’ll just go through the list and discuss the men and the films that I have a reasonable fondness for….

DUSTIN HOFFMAN – 9 TIMES
BILLY BATHGATE

JACK NICHOLSON – 9 TIMES
BATMAN, HOFFA, THE DEPARTED

AL PACINO – 9 TIMES
SCARFACE, DICK TRACY, THE GODFATHER PART III, DONNIE BRASCO, INSOMNIA

BRAD PITT – 9 TIMES
A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT, TROY, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON

And the champ…

ROBERT DENIRO – 14 TIMES
BANG THE DRUM SLOWLY, MEAN STREETS, BRAZIL, THIS BOY’S LIFE, JACKIE BROWN, GREAT EXPECTATIONS
