Kurt Russell before his death in The Hateful Eight

Kurt Russell (1951 - )

Film DeathsEdit

  • The Thing (1982) [McCready]: Possibly freezes to death (off-screen); the film ends with him and Keith David waiting in the snow, his last line implicating that their fate is ambiguous.
  • Backdraft (1991) [Stephen 'Bull' McCaffrey/Dennis McCaffrey]: Playing a dual role as father and son, the father "Dennis" is killed in an explosion when he pushes Scott Glenn to safety just as the gas line blows; the son "Stephen" is impaled on a broken pipe in a fall from a burning building, and dies in the ambulance on the route to the hospital.
  • Miracle (2004) [Herb Brooks]: Dies (off-screen) of a heart attack; we learn of his death during the on-screen text at the end of the film.
  • Poseidon (2006) [Robert Ramsey]: Drowns after swimming into the flooded control room of the sinking ship to save the others.
  • Bone Tomahawk (2015) [Sherriff Franklin Hunt]: Has his stomach sliced open and is shot in the stomach by Geno Segers, then presumably dies (off-screen) some time afterwards. We last see him talking to Richard Jenkins before staying behind so Richard, Patrick Wilson and Lili Simmons can escape. Richard, Patrick and Lili later hear gunshots after leaving the cave, implying that he either died from blood loss, suicide by shooting himself, or further injury by the troglodytes.

TV DeathsEdit

  • Elvis (1979 TV) [Elvis Presley]: Dies (off-screen) of a drug-induced heart attack. (trivia: Kurt shared the screen with Elvis himself in the 1963 film It happened at world's fair)
