~ Kirby's last words before getting kicked out of the White House and being arrested for his treachery.

Martin James Kirby is the main antagonist in the 2019 film Angel Has Fallen, the third installment of the Has Fallen film series.

He was the Vice President of the United States who conspired along with Wade Jennings to have President Allan Trumbull's assassination and usurp the President's decisions on private military companies.

He was portrayed by Tim Blake Nelson, who also played The Leader in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Jonathan Jacobo in Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.


Although he seemed like a loyal yet very shy like character, Kirby was actually in reality a corrupt and treacherous mastermind who was determined to become the new president so he go to war. Kirby was also determined to have anyone else who stand in his way die and frame Mike Banning for his actions to ruin his reputation.


After the attack, Vice President Martin Kirby is sworn in as Acting President due to Trumbull being in a coma.

After Trumbull comes out of his coma, Kirby is revealed to be involved with Jennings. He plans to retaliate by attacking Russia due to the 'assassination attempt' on the President

After Banning was exonerated, Trumbull arrests Vice President Kirby for treason thanks to the evidence uncovered by late FBI Agent Helen Thompson.

Kirby is thought be sentenced to prison for life or executed for his crimes, betrayal and conspiracy.


  • Kirby is so far the only antagonist in the Has Fallen series to be arrested and not die. However, it can be implied that he was sentenced for life or executed for his actions.
  • Before the film's release, Wade Jennings was thought to be the main villain because he started the terrorist attack and did all the work. However, Martin Kirby was revealed to be the true mastermind behind the events.
