* JerkAss: The guy with the wheelchair/cane who goes into the record store at the beginning of the movie. A former con artist and cult leader (who is heavily implied to have used the cult to bilk money out of people), he's almost gleeful that the world is going to end and everyone is going to die, because he'll never have to pay for his misdeeds (and also that he proved his fellow cult leaders wrong when they thought the world was going to end in 2009 and he thought it would end in 2012)
