Jeffrey Dean Morgan, known by his friends as Denny Duquette, needs to find an agent who isn't a necrophiliac. I've recently noticed many of Jeff's most notable roles are those of characters who happen upon a series of unfortunate events and die. It's a sad tale because he's actually quite cute ...
Role #1 - Denny Duquette on "Grey's Anatomy." This lovable invalid entered Seattle's Grace Hospital in the middle of Season 2 as a patient in desperate need of a heart transplant. Poor unlucky bastard never gets a heart, dies and breaks the heart of one Isobel Stevens. But for those Denny lovers out there - don't fret - he returned as a ghost in the current season of Grey's. Unfortunately Jeff's curse of choosing characters who will die is more like a plague, since we have just recently found out that Izzie is dying or diseased or insert something tragic. Tear.
Role #2 - Judah Botwin on the Showtime series "Weeds." The unfortunate SOB doesn't even make it to the show - the plot begins at his recent death! This guy doesn't get any breaks. He's only in a few episodes as flashbacks or from video clips, and so far, he's remained in the ground - no phantom appearances.
Role #3 - John Winchester on "Supernatural." Granted, I've never actually watched the show, IMDb promises that Jeff's character on this show is, shockingly, deceased. Well, he's actually in some Limbo, middle-ground (the same place where Tupac is living - he's not dead. Swear) and will probably appear on the show sometime in the future. Looking forward to it!
Role #4 - William on P.S. I love you. Jeff actually doesn't die in this movie, but his best friend did and the plot of the movie surrounds this death, so this example counts.
Four examples. Four deaths. A few revivals. Lots of therapy for the other characters on his shows.
You know you love me. XOXO, Gluten Girl
