Film DeathsEdit

  • Maximum Overdrive (1986) [Videoplayer]: Electrocuted by a sentient arcade game.
  • Do the Right Thing (1989) [Buggin' Out]: Possibly killed by officers (off-screen) who arrest him and take him into custody, after Rick Aiello and other officers kill Bill Nunn in front of horrified onlookers,  including Spike Lee and Roger Guenveur Smith . We last see him being thrown into the back seat of the patrol car and beaten repeatedly by one officer as the car drives away. Giancarlo's fate is unknown. It is never mentioned whether he is alive or deceased. Because the officers were prone to use excessive force, Im guessing he may have died by police brutality while in custody. 
  • Bob Roberts (1992) [Bugs Raplin]: Shot to death (off-screen) by an extremist vigilante, after Giancarlo had been framed and cleared for (non-fatally) shooting Tim Robbins. We learn of his death when Brian Doyle-Murray hears the news.
  • Back in the Day (2005) [Benson Cooper]: Shot to death by Ving Rhames. (Thanks to Andrew)
