Roger ”Verbal” Kint, The Usual Suspects
It was the fake-out that made Kevin Spacey a Big Deal (and an Oscar-winning actor). True to his name, Verbal is a master at storytelling, spinning the engrossing yarn about the scary criminal overlord Keyser Söze. Of course, he’s lying (and, in fact, is Söze). But in a feat of meta-Method ridiculousness (he seems so sincere, so ineffectual) Spacey’s lies sound almost better than the truth. This swift-talking role would suit Spacey, who followed Suspects up in a number of roles, including 2013’s Netflix breakout House of Cards. —Adam Carlson
