13 Small Roles That Actually Made A Major Impact in TV & Movies

We all watch movies or TV shows because of our favorite cast, but out of the blue, a small role creates a huge impact and becomes the show-stealer. Here are 13 small roles that actually made a major impact in TV & movies.

1. Fantine, played by Anne Hathway in Les Misérables (2012) appears for less than 40 minutes, but she’s a show stealer and also won Oscar for best supporting actress.

2. Paulette Bonafonté, played by Jeniffer Coolidge in Legally Blonde (2001) is freaking hilarious and one of the most underrated actresses in Hollywood.

3. Mr. Chow, played by Ken Jeong in the Hangover franchise, just appears for five minutes on screen. But he’s super funny such that makers had to give him a major part in the sequels. 

4. Hit-girl, played by Chloe Grace Mortex in Kickass (2010)

5. Doug Judy, played by Craig Robinson in Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2013), appears for only eight episodes, but his chemistry with Jake Peralta is too good.

6. Minny Jackson, played by Octavia Spencer in The Help (2011), stole our hearts with her awestruck performance.

7. Barbara Holland, played by Shannon Purser in Stranger Things (2016), made such an impact on the screen that many people stopped watching Stranger Things after her death.

8. June George, played by Amy Poehler in Mean Girls (2004), as a cool mom is always a win.

9. Megan, played by Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids (2011), managed to make a strong screen presence.

10. We can still hear Bem, played by Ekow Quartey in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of the Azkaban (2004), explaining some crucial points in the movie.

11. Bruce Bogtrotter, played by Jimmy Karz in Matilda (1996) and it’s the best role ever because all he did was eating cake. Lol!

12. Asian Jim was played by Randall Park in The Office (2005). One of the best opening scenes of the show, and believe me, he auditioned for that role.

13. John Givings, played by Michael Shannon in Revolutionary RoaNo, and matter which movie he’s cast in, he always becomes the show-stealer.
