- "Assumption is the mother of all f*ck ups."
- ―Dane saying that to Penn [src]
He is portrayed by Eric Bogosian.
Dane is a crazed computer genius who hijacks a Grand Continental passenger train heading through the Rocky Mountains from Denver to Los Angeles, along with his right-hand man Marcus Penn and a large group of highly trained mercenaries. Having been offered $1 billion by Middle Eastern terrorists to destroy the Eastern Seaboard, Dane plans to use a powerful satellite-borne weapon known as Grazer One he helped build to target a nuclear reactor under the Pentagon. Unfortunately for him, also on board the train is ex-Navy SEAL Casey Ryback. Throughout the course of the film, while he uses Grazer One for other purposes, Ryback neutralizes all of Dane's men, kills Penn, and finally confronts Dane himself in the final carriage. Dane claims that Ryback cannot stop Grazer One from destroying Washington, but Ryback shoots the computer Dane is holding and restores control of the satellite to the Pentagon. The bullet also wounds Dane and sends him tumbling out of the train window, just as the train collides with another oncoming train. Ryback races through the exploding carriages before grabbing hold of a rope ladder dangling from a helicopter above him.
However, Dane, still alive, grabs his leg and yells that he and Ryback would make a good team. Ryback climbs into the helicopter and peers down at Dane, whose body is gradually being consumed by flames from the explosion below. Ryback then slams the door shut, severing all of Dane's fingers and sending him plummeting to his fiery doom into the explosion.
