I am a professor for forensic medicine. Believe me Mr. Bond, I could shoot you from Stuttgart und still create ze proper effect.
~ Dr. Kaufman to Bond
Wait...I'm just a professional doing a job!
~ Dr. Kaufman pleads for his life

Dr. Kaufman is the tertiary antagonist in the film Tomorrow never dies. He is a professional hitman and Stamper's teacher on chakra torture.

He was played by the late Vincent Schiavelli.


Tasked by his boss Carver, Kaufman kills the former's wife Paris, who was the ex-lover of James Bond. When Bond arrives in the hotel suite, he finds Paris' body and is then alarmed by the news in the TV which say that Paris' body was found next to that of an unidentified man as part of a murder-suicide pact. Kaufman then arrives to the scene, aiming his gun at Bond. As part of Carver's plan, Kaufman was ordered to make it seem like Bond killed Paris and then commited suicide to ensure that the news reports stays true to its form. The hitman orders Bond to lie down next to the dead woman. He then brags about his expertise as a killer, claiming to be especially good at the "celebrity overdose".

However, Bond is saved when Kaufman is called by Stamper, who tells him that his henchmen had failed to break into Bond's car to steal the American GPS encoder due to an auto defense system built in the car. Embarrassed, Kaufman tells Bond that he now has to ask how to open the car. Bond then goads Kaufman into taking his mobile phone, telling him that it opens the car. Kaufman takes the phone and tries to phone the number Bond told him, but is shocked by a taser built into the phone. Taking the opportunity, Bond attacks Kaufman and aims Kaufman's gun at his head. Despite Kaufman pleading for his life, Bond angrily shoots him, avenging Paris' death. Upon learning of Kaufman's death, Stamper personally resolves to torture and kill Bond for this, saying that he was like a father to him.
