[[folder: Main Cast]]

!! Donnie [=DuPre=] / [[spoiler: Jimmy Boyd]]
-> Played by Creator/DougWalker

The director and founder of ''Demo Reel'' who lives off his working wife's income and wanted to get back at Hollywood by remaking popular movies and pointing out all the flaws.

* AbusiveParents: If the pre-nup talk is real, then the rest of his family outside of his MissingMom sounds awful.
* {{Adorkable}}: His Creator/EdWood-like enthusiasm for making these movies can't be broken no matter how much the universe hates him.
* AlliterativeName: [[spoiler: which is the first hint that it's not his real one]].
* AuthorAvatar: There's a lot of Doug in him (a lot that isn't too, to make him his own character, but that's obvious), right down to how similar their names are. Doug's admitted at cons that he gets scared about directing and doesn't particularly enjoy it, has WordOfGod issues with working too much to try and help his mood, is as everyone knows extremely sweet, he's very cuddly to both genders, his idealism has bitten him in the ass more than once, he's delighted to encourage SlashFic even with his brother, and Donnie's way of angsting is the one he finds best; trying to deal with it yourself but reaching out to a few people when it gets too hard.
* BeardOfSorrow: He manages to be clean-shaven while having nothing in the woods, but suddenly gains a lot more stubble while the family is keeping him. When he's back with his friends though, he's back to his normal face.
* BenevolentBoss: Bad director certainly, and does bad things without realizing it, but this is the guy that called Rebecca and Tacoma his best friends within five minutes of knowing them.
* BlindWithoutEm: [[TheGlassesComeOff Trying to look cool]] while introducing himself doesn't really work.
* BiTheWay: Probably the only thing he doesn't have issues on, and he's even more comfortable with touchy-feeling guys than girls.
* BreakTheHaughty[=/=]BreakTheCutie: By episode three, the constant failures of his movies has eroded away most of the arrogant facade we saw in the pilot. It only gets worse for him from there.
* BrokenTears: Cries realistically, accompanied with coughing and spluttering because that happens when you have when you have no water, a few times when he's been left in the woods to die.
* BuryYourGays: The first Doug character to be handsy and all over guys with no winking, depravity or angst and he gets erased from existence with a SuddenDownerEnding? If you must.
* CannotTalkToWomen: He's definitely better with men than women, as he stumbles over his first few attempts at getting to know Rebecca, and a jerk snorts at him for being awkward with a blonde cosplayer.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Subverted. He lets Uncle Yo think he can't and is just throwing up from the just-six drinks he had, but really he's being sick from bad childhood memories.
* CharacterDevelopment[=/=]CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the first episode, he still loved the team and wanted to make them happy, but was more manipulative, overbearing and would rather give off the impression that he was an egotistical leech than [[HenpeckedHusband the]] [[DomesticAbuse truth]]. By ''Wreck It Ralph'', his real {{moeblob}} personality came out.
** He also got over his InnocentBigot issues and in the ''Skyfall'' parody, became the feminist he wanted to be in-pilot by having the original DisposableWoman (Severine) get the upper hand.
* CharacterTic: He nearly always has something in his hands, whether it's checking his phone, actually holding a keyboard, fiddling with pocky, or just flicking around with his pen.
* CosmicPlaything: Its intentional.
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: While Tacoma throws up from Carl slaughtering the pig, he makes jokes about it, and his nonchalance about rape and rape scenes gets a frown from Rebecca, so the viewers are forced to assume he got used to both in HorribleHollywood.
* ConsummateLiar: He has a very good FreudianExcuse, but even at the end of ''Blue Patches'' he's keeping things to himself and twisting the truth.
* ControlFreak: Unless Tacoma hits on a CloseToHome issue like in ''WreckItRalph'', he messes up the writer's good ideas to further his own agenda. To his credit, he's probably not even aware he's doing it.
* CowardlyLion: While he had a few breakdowns, he managed surprisingly well for a victim who spent more than three days in the woods with no food or water.
* CuddleBug: He's a touchy-feely one, especially with other guys.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Like Tacoma, with Rebecca, but more subtle. Look at his movies and the characters she plays; Catwoman is always kept out of danger and doesn't join the fight, Rachel Dawes comes back to life when she didn't originally, and Severine both survives ''and'' beats up Film/JamesBond for his sexism.
* DefiantToTheEnd: While afraid, tearful and eventually DyingAlone, he still calls out Doug for making his life a TraumaCongaLine when he didn't have to and writing his death in such a hack way.
* DespairEventHorizon: "[[spoiler: Well, my mother killed herself for one.]]" He's visibly given up by this point, and if it hadn't been for the pills mistake, probably would have stayed at the house without fight.
* DesperatelyCravesAffection: He plays every ''WreckItRalph'' character on his own despite it giving him a migraine, gives the best performance he can in the big speech, and finishes the script, all because he wanted to make Tacoma happy.
* DisappearedDad: His dad left when he was little, leaving his mom to try and raise him on her own. Whether he came back after the [[spoiler: suicide]] is unknown.
* DistressedDude: [[spoiler: Is separated from Karl at the end of the convention and gets kidnapped by the bad guys]].
** And again at the end of episode four when [[spoiler: he enters a house in the woods and almost immediately gets knocked out. In the following episode, we learn that he is being continuously pumped with narcotics in order to be kept hostage by a family obsessed with watching his terrible movies- and forcing him to watch alongside them whether he likes it or not. He does escape on his own, through simply taking advantage of their stupidity]].
* {{The Ditz}}: He's the only who {{Buffy Speak}}s and doesn't understand Karl's sarcastic comments.
* DoomedMoralVictor: He gives a big rant about how unfair it is that his ''terrible'' life is just punishment [[spoiler: for someone else]] and is nearly crying when he has to let [[spoiler: his friends fade away]]. But he gets no sympathy from the creator and has to change back into [[spoiler: Critic]].
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: The "Jingle Sells" scene in Blue Patches. Doug had never looked that dead inside before.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Because Doug had wanted him to exist since 2008, he was visible in the ''SuburbanKnights'' extra footage (fedora hat while filming, Doug itching to get more SexSells and drama in his work, plus his terror at failing as a director) and the ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' commentary where Doug foreshadowing his next character would be married.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His opening spiel about what Demo Reel is. Shows off his {{adorkable}}ness, his fragile ego, his pride in his friends, his innocence, and his femminess, but also a very visible loathing of Hollywood.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Flirts with girls? He strikes out. Makes sad eyes at another man? They're with him or do what he wants instantly.
* {{Expy}}: [[spoiler: His acting career is primarily based off Jake Lloyd's (and MaraWilson, to a lesser extent), only way more depressing.]]
* ExtremeDoormat: He only raises his voice about twice, stands up for himself with no lying down to die right after just once, and keeps apologizing to people who ''really'' don't deserve it.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: The circumstances are humiliating and he desperately doesn't want to, but he walks to his death with ironically the most self-possession we've ever seen from him.
* [[FeigningIntelligence Fake Nerd Boy]]: He parrots everything Uncle Yo taught him about anime and Pokemon to EgoRaptor, pretending it's his own so he'll be liked better.
* FedoraOfAsskicking: Inverted. It's only when he's lost the fedora does he start to fight back against the people making his life more miserable than it already is.
* FishOutOfWater: He's completely out of his element at both the con and in the forest. The first one he manages to deal with by hitting on Uncle Yo and Egoraptor so they'll take him under their wings, but the second goes wrong in all the understandable ways. After going through the PlotHole, he's also terrified of the review room.
* [[spoiler: FormerChildStar]]: He's eventually revealed to be one. [[spoiler:His career bombed after his mother killed herself while he was shooting a movie which caused him to give a bad performance.]]
* {{Guyliner}}: Wears it as the henchman in ''The Dark Knight Begins Rising'' with no complaint. [[PrettyBoy He looks good]].
* HatesBeingAlone: After Uncle Yo unintentionally hurts him and then falls asleep, he first goes to Carl and tries to join in on the foursome, but gets rejected and goes straight back to the bar.
* HeCleansUpNicely: Proves he can be just as good a SharpDressedMan as Bond in the ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' parody.
* HeroicBSOD: He doesn't take well to the ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' parody being hated and his best friends telling him the truth about his movies being awful.
* HouseHusband: He tries to justify living off his wife's checks by going on a long spiel about how he's helping women's lib and “letting” her go to work instead.
** HappyMarriageCharade: Donnie was forced to sign a prenup which actually excludes him from any family gatherings, including from ''his'' side.
** HenpeckedHusband: It's revealed in episode three that he's the one trying to make the relationship work, despite the money issue.
* IAmWhatIAm: After all he went through, the end of "Blue Patches" has him finally realize he can accept who he is, as both Donnie [=DuPre=] and [[spoiler: Jimmy Boyd]].
* IJustWantToHaveFriends
* InnocentBigot: Starts off this way, failing to paint himself as a feminist ally with the bullshit he's spewing about his wife, assuming Carl and Quinn are both Cajun and giving Rebecca and Tacoma vaguely sexist and racist roles, plus dubbing over the latter when he plays anyone but the servant in Batman, but after they call him out in Transformers, he grows up, apologizes and starts giving them cooler roles. He owns up ''a little'' to his marriage situation too.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: In the first episode, after he changes Tacoma's ending to expositioning what Alfred is seeing instead letting the viewers use their imagination, he's sincerely confused over why Tacoma's so angry.
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: “Doing it for my sisters” might not be a phrase you want to use, Donnie. He has a lot in common with Ed Wood as a director (without the bitter sleaze of the later years), so that's probably why he enjoys wearing eyeliner and lipstick, and why the Pocky scene in “Lost In Translation” shows off a sweet manicure.
* InVinoVeritas: Like Rebecca, he lets too much slip when he's been drinking.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's pathetic, doesn't think things through, his need to be coddled frustrates the camera-men and doesn't give a good first impression, but he realizes his flaws and tries to work on them, really wants his marriage to be okay, will tell anyone who listens how proud he is of his {{team}}, has major self-worth issues and his hero seems to be his MissingMom.
* LongingForFictionland: He has a good cry in episode four over how you can do everything the exact opposite of a movie, and it can still fail in real life.
* MissingMom: She's [[spoiler: killed herself while he was filming a movie]], and he misses her terribly.
* MommasBoy: Tragically so.
* TheMovieBuff: Proves his worth by telling Uncle Yo what really happened in four movies with open endings.
* MrFanservice: "I've always dreamed that someone would do a SlashFic of me" just about sums it up.
* MysteriousPast: According to what Tacoma has uncovered, Donnie Dupre doesn't exist. Donnie mentioned that his mother was an actor, but refuses to elaborate and changes the subject when someone probes further. It's eventually revealed that Donnie is [[spoiler: former child actor Jimmy Boyd, who starred in such films as ''[[Film/ThePhantomMenace Galaxy Battle]]'', and who lost his mother while filming ''[[Film/JingleAllTheWay Jingle Sells]]'' with Arnold Schwarzenegger.]]
* NiceHat: Although it gets dumped in an anvilly shot when Critic takes over.
* NonActionGuy: The others know it (Karl not even attempting to get him to fight the turkey) and so does he ("I know I'm out of my element" in the forest). The only actiony thing he does onscreen is punch out Collins.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/5e28cf0ee318c4995f2269f4535f2a51/tumblr_mmf05tNRo21s92y6jo1_500.png This picspam]] doesn't even show ''half'' the examples.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He's 42, but Uncle Yo seems to figure him for mid twenties by the "mid-midlife crisis" comment, and as said above, Doug made no attempt to age himself in the slightest.
* {{Only Friend}}s: Tacoma and Rebecca. He doesn't even think his ''wife'' would miss him when he's dead.
* OralFixation: So be grateful to Pocky for at least one thing.
* PapaWolf: He's disgusted with the {{yandere}} father for thinking it's acceptable to blame his daughter for everything.
* PrettyBoy: Doug's attractiveness was exploited to full potential with this show, with crotch shots everywhere and Donnie taking advantage of people thinking he's hot.
* ProudBeauty: He's all too happy to use his mouth and hands and pretty blue eyes and NoSenseOfPersonalSpace to get people doing what he wants, even when it does lead to SoBeautifulItsACurse.
* PuppyDogEyes: He's the first Doug character smart enough [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mcqpt1vNrq1rad84oo1_500.png to use them to his advantage]].
* PutOnABusToHell: In his commentary, Doug said that he and Rob were so pissed off by fans demanding Critic's return, that they made Donnie that character just to passive-aggressively screw their own work over.
* RaisedCatholic: Very likely, as he's prayed twice, calls rain "God's tears" and it tends to be a thing with Doug's characters (as he was raised that way, but is now agnostic).
* ReallyGetsAround: To the point where Yo immediately assumes his "crusade against Hollywood" issue comes from an abusive ex he surely had out there.
* SanitySlippage: In Demo Reel Annoys Rob Paulsen.
--> '''Donnie''': Where'd you go? WHERE'D YOU GO?!! WHERE ARE YOU?!! *Pants* I swear Rob Paulsen; I will find you. Yes! You can't run from me! *Whispers* I can smell your talent. I swear Rob Paulsen, where ever you go, where ever you are, I WILL LOCATE Y-oh, there you are.
** More seriously, both Tacoma and Uncle Yo get concerned about his repeated phrasing of "they had it coming" in episode three, mostly because he never says who "they" are.
** Again in part four when he's lost in the woods.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: is the feminine, naive, needs-to-be-protected guy to the down-to-earth Tacoma and the military-like Carl and Quinn.
* SmallNameBigEgo: In the first episode. The trait dies pretty quickly.
* SoProudOfYou: After messing up in episode one, he gives Tacoma exactly what he wants by hugging him and promising he'll be avenged right after the latter admits to being a WellDoneSonGuy.
* StalkerWithACrush[=/=]StalkerWithoutACrush: He may not have had sexual intentions in mind for Rob Paulsen, but it came off like he did when he suffered a bit of SanitySlippage.
* StereotypeFlip: Due to his fedora. Due to reddit and tumblr, the perception of men who wear them is that they're nasty [=MRA=]s who only care about getting laid and wanting women back in the kitchen. Donnie on the other hand wanted to be feminist and eventually managed it, and was Doug's sweetest and most happily slutty character.
* StupidSacrifice: He was "created" so Critic would become ([[AesopAmnesia again]], [[WebVideo/SuburbanKnights some]] [[WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee more]]) nicer and wiser, except Critic seems to have gone back to his early nasty characterization ''and'' wanted to die again by ''Son Of The Mask'', so that was pointless too.
* SympatheticAdulterer: He flirts with every single person he can and most of the time has to ''reminded'' that he's taken, but he still comes off as the victim because of the phone call and pre-nup agreement.
* UnkemptBeauty: Episodes four and five have him steadily getting his clothes more rumpled and acquiring more dirt and stubble on his face.
* VanityIsFeminine: Wears eyeliner for the movies, plus a few wigs to cover his bad hairline, lipstick for the hell of it, and you can see in the pocky ''LostInTranslation'' scene that he's had a manicure.
* TheyreCalledPersonalIssuesForAReason: He would rather have everyone believe he just leeches off his wife's income, but the worse his angst becomes and the more they pry into his life, he's forced to admit the nastier details of his life.
* ThousandYardStare: Gives a particularly tearful one when Uncle Yo asks if it was his mother that told him to stay away from Hollywood.
** He also has one when he wakes up after going through the PlotHole. With what he's been through and what's to come, again it's hard to blame him.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: He's shat upon even in death, but he was the only Doug character who made it out of "The Review Must Go On" with a hint of dignity still in-tact. Meanwhile Critic and Doug himself [[http://blip.tv/nostalgiacritic/nc-the-last-airbender-6637022 aren't doing too hot]].
* TragicDream: He's wanted to remake movies better ever since he was a kid. You can guess how that's turning out.
* TragicHero: One of the worst. Every slightest ray of hope he can find just gets taken away from him, and he doesn't even get the happy ending he deserved.
* TranquilFury: After the Creator feeds him the "explanation" of why he had to have such a terrible life, he's openly and justifiably seething.
* TwitchyEye: There's a noticeable jolt in his face when he vaguely mentions the family ("like a certain group of people that I [[FromACertainPointOfView came across]]") to his friends.
* WeightWoe: The rare "too skinny" version. He knows full well what manipulatively pretty qualities he has, but thinks he looks like a shaved cat when shirtless.
* WellDoneSonGuy: The only reason he acted in the first place was to follow in mom's footsteps, and when he's starving in the woods he bashes himself unnecessarily for not being able to have to the hope she once had.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: Like Tacoma's eyes, the camera had a ridiculous amount of close-ups of Doug's gorgeous greens per episode.
* WhiteMaleLead: Deconstructed. He has a ton of issues and is truly a good guy, but it's still made clear in ''The Dark Knight Begins Rising'' and ''Transformers'' that his white maleness gives him an advantage over the black guy and the woman, and he apologizes to both for giving them racist and sexist roles in his early movies all because he wanted to pander to the internet demographic.
* WideEyedIdealist: He holds out hope for things much longer than he should, and takes it hard when they don't work out.
* {{Workaholic}}: It's heavily implied that he throws himself into his work because it distracts from the pain of whatever's going on. When that can't happen, he breaks.
* YankTheDogsChain: Riding on a high after making up with your {{bromance}} buddy? [[spoiler: Sorry, you've just got yourself captured]].

!! Rebecca Stoné
-> Played by Rachel Tietz

A GeniusDitz actress who originally made one girl shows of works like Theatre/{{Hamlet}} before becoming an actress for ''Demo Reel''. Works part-time next door as a security guard for Fabrizio.

* AbusiveParents: They missed loads of school plays, don't agree with her career choices, openly disrespect her, and sent her on camping trips with her CreepyUncle.
* {{Angrish}}: In her FreakOut NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on [[spoiler: Tom Collins]].
* {{Adorkable}}: Has an amazing cackle of a laugh, and the trailer had her dancing around in Donnie's fedora and glasses.
* AntagonistInMourning: When she comes down from her sugar high, she strokes the turkey's head and cries over it.
* BadassAdorable: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2GWDMH5Zp4 Much to Rachel's pleasure]].
-->'''Rachel''': I ''love'' that Doug made me a badass in Demo Reel. I appreciated that so much, because I ''never'' get to play the badass, I want to beat people up and kill turkeys and wear t-shirts, so I'm really glad that I got to do that, and Malcolm, [[SarcasmMode which he was so happy about]], got to wear all the dresses!
* BerserkButton: An insane turkey found out it's not a good idea to get Tacoma sick.
** Not just the turkey. Let's just say, if you harm any of her friends you are going to be in for a world of hurt.
** It doesn't end in homicidal rage, but sexism makes her drop the "ditzy-so-approachable-actress" shtick and brings the TranquilFury out.
* TheBerserker: For MamaBear reasons. She goes absolutely insane in beating the shit out of a psycho turkey and [[spoiler: Tom Collins]].
* BigEater: She eats the huge, mutated turkey and seven hundred pounds of eggs, and the only bad effect that comes is a sugar crash from her previous high.
* TheCastShowOff: Rachel really can sing, juggle, play guitar, and draw that well.
* CharacterDevelopment: Plenty, but the most prominent being sorting through her actress issues by branching out and writing the Carmen Sandiego movie with Tacoma.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: To say she's "not all there" would be putting it kindly.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Underestimate her at your own risk.
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Her parents never liked anyone she brought home.
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: She's had ''42'' jobs in what can't have been a long length of time.
* DisposableWoman: She's the first to disappear in "The Review Must Go On" before they're all replaced with {{retcon}}ning exposition-dumps, and doesn't even get the sorta-goodbye Donnie and Tacoma had.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: The Demo Reel guys are the only ones who remotely treat her like the kooky but smart woman she is. Everywhere else and she's a BrainlessBeauty with no opinions.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Talking with Tacoma over the white-face make-up demonstrates her optimism, her kindness and her ditziness, but also her keen eye for summing up UnfortunateImplications.
* EthicalSlut: She's pretty with a healthy sexual appetite, but because of her abuse always keeps her agency and would never let herself be objectified again.
* ExhaustedEyebags: Starting from "Wreck It Ralph vs. Angry Birds", Rachel seems to get make-up underneath her eyes for a tired look in a lot of scenes.
* FairCop: Her attractiveness isn't mentioned in-universe (aside from all the ShipTease flying around), but she's a security guard and Rachel worked for a while as a part-time model.
* {{Fetish}}: While she made Tacoma wear the dress as punishment at first, she regularly tells him how good he looks in it. Also, when hungover, she picks up a nearby whip with interest.
* GenkiGirl: After consuming Karl's special formula (made of coffee, Red Bull, a whole lot of sugar and [[spoiler: amphetamines]]), causing her to go into CaffeineBulletTime.
* GeniusDitz: She's the first character to get that SWAG are the bad guys.
** As bad as they may have been, pulling off one-woman shows of Hamlet and Titanic in the first place is not something to ignore.
* GoodCounterpart: To WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick. Both can be scary, both are {{Lady Drunk}}s, both have abusive pasts, but while Chick deals with it by being cruel to everyone, Rebecca is a good-hearted PluckyGirl who is delighted when her friends are happy.
* GuiltyPleasures: She reads the trashiest of tabloids when she's alone.
-->'''Rebecca''': So Kirstie Alley ate Honey Boo Boo. How tragic.
* GunNut: A rare non-psychotic/evil version. She has a different gun in each of the first three episodes and is proud of her ability with them.
* HiddenDepths: Multi-talented and smarter than she seems.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Manages to hurt both Donnie and Tacoma in the space of five minutes by telling the former that Demo Reel wasn't a waste of time because it was padding for her resume, and offending the latter by saying he sucked at his journalist job.
* InVinoVeritas: When high, she ends up screaming about her DarkAndTroubledPast much to the terror of Tacoma and Donnie.
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: Her name has a silent ''accent''.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's deluded, ditzy and may have accidentally killed a cat, but she's well-intentioned, works successfully on her tact and loves her friends to the point of violence.
* LackOfEmpathy: In episode one, she doesn't seem to care that she probably killed an animal. She's better in episode two when she and Tacoma bond over their families, and even better in episode three when she's trying to let Donnie down gently.
* TheLadette: Still has the girly appearance with long hair and red nails, but drinks a lot, despises the fact that most actresses are taken on because they're attractive, and bristles harshly at her parents apparently wanting her to be a {{housewife}}.
* LadyDrunk: "I told you I can't do caffeine, but liquor? You will be my bitch."
** This was referenced in Rachel's goodbye-from-TGWTG party, they gave her one of the bottles from the show with real booze and she was very happy. [[note]]To have a reminder of Demo Reel, not just to have alcohol.[[/note]]
* LaughingMad: Her cackle when beating the shit out of the turkey is something to behold.
* LettingHerHairDown: For the first couple of episodes, her hair would be either in a bun or plaited at points, but when she's more comfortable with herself and the guys, it stays loose.
* MamaBear: While probably the youngest cast member at 23, do anything bad to her boys and she ''will'' try and beat you to death.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Has this dynamic with both Tacoma and Donnie. She and Tacoma provide a subversion of MenUseViolenceWomenUseCommunication, and Donnie goes between wariness of her temper and attraction to her dommy side.
* MoralityPet: It's not a good idea to upset Rebecca at all, but it's even worse to do it when Quinn's around.
* MotherlySidePlait: Occasionally. She's too InnocentlyInsensitive to be a good TeamMom, but she's a much better MamaBear.
* MustMakeAmends: She's the one who feels most guilty over Donnie's mom, and pushes Tacoma into writing the best sequel for "Blue Patches" he can.
* NervesOfSteel: She is not easily frightened even in situations where she reasonably should be (and her male counterparts are).
* NotAMorningPerson: Tiredness from working all night makes her miserable and cranky instead of the GenkiGirl {{Cloudcuckoolander}} we're used to. Getting shot down by her parents again doesn't help.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: She plays dumb to some degree to appear more desirable as an actress... but she's still genuinely eccentric as well.
* PetitePride: She's more toned and athletic than busty, but still uses VictoriasSecretCompartment to flirt with Tacoma.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: Tacoma is pretty built, and yet she throws him off her ragefest like he's nothing.
* PluckyGirl: While more damaged and world-weary than she first let on, for the most part she likes to ovary up and take life with a smile. Instead of going BrokenBird with her past and experiences, she wants her friends to be happy and tries to help as much as she can.
* RapeAsBackstory: "Uncle Frank". Her parents either didn't notice or didn't care.
* ReplacementGoldfish: As her characters in Donnie's movies always live when they didn't in the originals, it's implied he's using her in that way to get over how his mom was treated. Also supported by her worry that she's a young woman and already feels over the hill in terms of her career, ''and'' that she looks a lot like the mother's picture in the newspaper.
* SanityStrengthening: She takes all the failures a little differently to Donnie. While he's textbook BreakTheCutie[=/=]BreakTheHaughty, she's increased in tact, empathy and eventually feels able to reveal how intelligent she really is.
* ScrewYourself: She's done a one-woman show of ''Film/{{Titanic}}'', love scene included.
* SheCleansUpNicely: She plays Severine in the ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' parody and wears a LittleBlackDress instead of her usual shirt and jeans.
* SilkHidingSteel: There's a reason why Carl respects her, she can really be scary when pushed.
* SingleWomanMeetsGoodMan: She had a lot of bad experiences with men, but both Tacoma and Donnie count as good guys and if the series had continued she would have fallen in love with the former.
* SmallNameBigEgo: But like Donnie, only in the first episode.
* SoBeautifulItsACurse: A rare sympathetic example with no MaleGaze on her. She complains in episode four that she hates people thinking she's just a dumb prop who's there to look pretty and have no thoughts of her own.
* TheStoner: When the boys complain about their demographic being druggies, she tells them not to judge because they've all must have eaten Cinnamon Toast Crunch and asked their feet for financial advice at least once.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: She claims that she can speak cat.
* SweetPollyOliver: When donning male personas.
* UnkemptBeauty: Episodes four and five has her in a baggy t-shirt with her hair all messed up.
* UnstoppableRage: When beating up the SWAG leader for destroying their film. She couldn’t discern friend from enemy, as Tacoma found out when he tried to pull her away.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: She tucks her bet winnings from Tacoma in her bra. He happily notices.
* [[WellDoneSonGuy Well Done Daughter Girl]]: Has some...issues with her family, as revealed in Episode 2.
* WhiteDwarfStarlet: She's terrified of becoming one.
* WillNotBeAVictim: She only thinks of tears in rare cases, like when being high is driving her crazy or a when a film present she did great in gets destroyed, and even for the latter she decides trying to beat someone to death is the better option.
* WomanChild: Except when it comes to [[spoiler: suicide]], she has a pretty childlike "it doesn't matter" view about death. She nonchalantly asks Fabrizio if he's ever killed anyone, she doesn't care what her mafia bosses do, and she would have kidnapped an old lady for the ''Blue Patches'' sequel if it weren't too risky. By contrast, she constantly refers [[spoiler: a movie that was meant to make a friend feel better]] being destroyed as it getting "killed" instead.
* YaoiFangirl: If she looked any more excited at Donnie/Tacoma making up in the pilot or Donnie/Carl becoming friends in the finale, she would have probably let out {{squee}} noises.
* YankTheDogsChain: As soon as she says the “Blue Patches” sequel is the best thing they've ever done and that they have to save it, the SWAG leader yanks it out of her hand and destroys the evidence.

!! Tacoma Narrows
-> Played by Malcolm Ray

A NiceGuy writer who at first feels ashamed of the company and people he's working with, but then grows to consider them a much better family than his own.

* AbusiveParents: His dad was a criminal and he was the only one that had a problem with this, so the other family members hate him now.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Even when she's not the one who needs protecting.
* AngryBlackMan: The show portrays his bitterness at white privilege as completely okay, and even when Donnie and Rebecca are in early stages of jerkiness, they accept that their race is pretty crappy and his hate is justified.
* TheAntiNihilist: Is really cynical about the outside world and where their show will end up, but willingly acts as Rebecca's confidant and Donnie's LivingEmotionalCrutch.
* TheAtoner: ''{{Transformers}}'' revealed that he was trying to apologize to his brothers, but they keep ignoring him.
* BeingGoodSucks: Being good got him ex-communicated from his family.
* BeleagueredAssistant: He does his best to write good scripts and is clearly less than thrilled with Donnie's creative edits.
* BewareTheHonestOnes: He notes how the truth always seems to get him in trouble.
* BlackAndNerdy: He compares the car behind him in "Lost In Translation" to one of the boogos from ''SuperMarioBrothers''.
* [[ByTheBookCop By The Book Journalist]]: When he discovers that Donnie's been missing for three days, he puts his foot down and decides that they're going to analyze the computer footage to find out what's going on.
* CelebCrush: Judy Dench. Just listen to the rapture in his voice when he says her name.
* CharacterDevelopment: He goes from condescending, passive-aggressive and just wanting to use Demo Reel as a way to break into the industry, to more open and respectful, enjoying himself with friends and wouldn't even think of giving the place up.
* TheCharmer: [[SarcasmMode Surprise surprise]], his "sensitive ways" is the trait Donnie likes most about him.
* TheChick: If he wasn't around, Donnie and Rebecca probably wouldn't resemble functional, sane-ish human beings.
* CondescendingCompassion: Starts out like this, as he's too nice to say anything but mostly thinks himself above Donnie and Rebecca while just wanting to use the experience to get into the industry, but grows to deeply care for them both and defend his job from SWAG.
* DisappearedDad: He's in jail. The kicker? ''Tacoma'' put him there.
* DraggedIntoDrag: to an extent, Rebecca makes him play Fabrizio's "lovely assistant" to make up for a line he said that upset her.
* TheDulcineaEffect: He doesn't seem to understand that Rebecca is perfectly able to look after herself. Admittedly this flaw only starts when he hears about her CreepyUncle.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Talking with Rebecca over the white-face make-up. He trusts her more than anyone even though he doesn't totally like her yet, he's kind but has anger building, cynically knows what the racist internet will say to him, and he can be shy and insecure whenever he wants, found out later to be the result of his family abuse.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: There is of course Donnie, and from the butter-melting way he plays the role, he pretty obviously has a thing for Billy Dee Williams.
* ExtremeDoormat: With his family, because of guilt over what he did to his dad. He puts up with his mom's emotional abuse, and sends apology letters to his brothers that don't get read.
* GranolaBoy: He's very aware of being the only black guy in a sea of pale people, so is a little more concerned about political correctness than they are.
* HeCleansUpNicely: Wears the [[Comicbook/TwoFace Harvey Dent]] and [[Film/{{Skyfall}} Silva]] suits rather well.
* IdenticalStranger: He bears striking resemblance to [[{{Psych}} Dule Hill]].
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: Manlier than Donnie, but still pleased to hear that his ass doesn't look big in a dress.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Until they argue in episode three, Donnie always gets really upset when he's annoyed or sick.
* LovableCoward: He sells out Karl in an instant when the turkey descends upon them. In his defense though, he was ill, the turkey was not normal and it ''was'' Karl's fault. And that's after he tries to hold the door shut in vain to keep it out.
* MeaningfulName: Tacoma Narrows is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tacoma_Narrows_Bridges a bridge in Washington]]. And without the character's relative strength, Donnie and Rebecca would have killed each other.
* NiceGuy: Though not without his limits on the amount of patience he has.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Donnie and Rebecca are usually the ones who hurt people by being InnocentlyInsensitive, but he suffers an epic foot in mouth problem by telling Rebecca her career's not going anywhere when she's already miserable.
** He disapproves of all the booze at first, but he has great fun betting on the DrinkingGame between Fabrizio and Rebecca.
** As smart as he is on other cultures, he assumes Scarletti (really "a stunad who couldn't keep his mouth shut") is a kind of pork.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: A variation. In The Dark Knight Begins Rising, he is cast as Alfred, and dons a British accent throughout the whole thing, but when [=DuPre=] (as Bruce Wayne) tries on various costumes, he pronounces [[SuperMarioBros Mario]]'s name the same way an American would, not a European[[note]]He pronounces it as Mah-ree-oh, and not Maa-ree-oh[[/note]]. Then, when [=DuPre=] tries [[WheresWally his next costume]], Narrows makes the same mistake[[note]]He calls the character "Waldo" instead of "Wally"[[/note]].
* PapaWolf: After learning what happened, he stews in anger and upset over what happened to Donnie as a kid, and has to be convinced by Rebecca to actually help the guy ''now''.
* PrettyBoy: Rebecca certainly thinks he looks hot in a princess dress (he's also quite pleased about this), and he's in a tight, arm-complimenting, black t-shirt before she makes him wear it.
* RageBreakingPoint: At the end of the Dark Knight episode finally snaps after he gets his desired ending of [[spoiler: the audience not '''seeing''' Bruce and Selina together but with Donnie ComicallyMissingThePoint and having Alfred exposit their presence there anyway.]]
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: When the turkey attacks, it even gets into the set.
--> '''Donnie''': ''*[[ThrowItIn Improvising]]*'' Look. [[SuperMario Princess Peach]] just gave birth.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: He pulls out of acting in the ''WreckItRalph'' remake because he needs to help Karl with the turkey problem. Still finishes the big speech for Donnie though.
* TheSmartGuy: While Donnie would rather go mainstream by doing parodies of ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' and other current movies, he wanted to do ''Literature/WutheringHeights'' so he could do something psychological.
* {{Straight Man}}: Which might be why he has less tropes than Donnie or Rebecca.
* TheUnfavorite: He brought down his own father's Ponzi scheme, which the rest of the family has never forgiven him for.
* WellDoneSonGuy
* WhatBeautifulEyes: The camera was fond of shots that would capture how long his eyelashes were.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: For the ''MissionImpossible'' parody, he's Oprah. And like the Belle dress, he doesn't seem all that regretful about it.
* WiseBeyondHisYears: Won a Pulitzer Prize for journalism when he was fresh out of college.
* YankTheDogsChain: Donnie makes him think that they'll do the Batman ending exactly his way. Unfortunately he only specified that they don't see what Alfred sees...

!! Karl Copenhagen
-> Played by Rob Walker

The cameraman of ''Demo Reel'' who may or may not have worked for the East German secret police and is definitely not a mercenary.

* [[AllergicToLove Allergic To Cute]]: Donnie gets punched hard when he pushes a teddy bear into Karl's face.
* AlliterativeName
* [[ArmoredClosetGay Armored Closet Bisexual]]: He holds Quinn's hand when he's sick but doesn't even want to admit that he's a friend, and it's lampshaded like mad that he thinks Donnie is a PrettyBoy, but he literally locks the door on the director because he's trying to prove his straightness.
* TheAtoner: Revealed when about to die by turkey:
-->'''Carl''': But I will go down with my shipmates, a lifetime of killing all creatures, great and small finally atoned for.
* {{Badass}}
-->'''Karl''': Where are you going, my friend? The ass-kicking is right here.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Eventually develops it for Donnie after the kidnapping. Fitting, considering the real-life protectiveness Rob had for Doug.
* BrutalHonesty: While Tacoma and Rebecca try and break Donnie's non-talent at movies gently to him, he and Quinn give it to him straight and nasty.
* CigarChomper: He chooses a manly-looking cigar for his OneLastSmoke when he thinks he's about to die.
* TheComicallySerious
* {{Crossover}}: Appeared in ''WebVideo/BradJonesDemoReel''.
* CruellaToAnimals: Willing to launch a turkey out of a catapult to make it fly. With a camera strapped to the bird's head.
* CompanionCube: Cammy the Camera
* CovertPervert: In "Lost In Translation", he focuses the camera on a miserable Donnie's ass and gets distracted by a con-girl's cleavage a couple of minutes after. Donnie also discovers him having a foursome later.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DefrostingIceKing: Is part of the family by the season one finale, and sits right next to Donnie instead of going somewhere else with Quinn like before.
* {{Determinator}}: Annoying as he might find the director, he stops at nothing in trying to find Donnie when he's missing.
* DontYouDarePityMe: He switches the usually-ever-present camera off when he enters the "sad stage" of vampire bird flu.
* [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench Everything Sounds Sexier In German]]: Female audiences lighting up at Rob's German accent was lampshaded in-universe at episode three, where it enabled him to have group-sex with three cosplayers.
* ExactWords: He often speaks wistfully of "before ze vall fell". The unaired ''Transformers'' episode reveals he doesn't mean the Berlin Wall being torn down and the political implications, but the actual wall that collapsed and killed his entire family.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: When it looks like he'll be killed by an evil turkey.
* AFatherToHisMen: In a ''seriously'' ToughLove way. Respects Rebecca enough to call her their only hope against an evil turkey, gets pissed when Tacoma sells him out, and even though he thinks Donnie is pathetically frustrating, he practically tears down the woods trying to look for him after the kidnapping.
* FunnyForeigner
* GermanicDepressive: He loves Thanksgiving because "getting together and everyone being miserable" is one of the Proper German Values.
* GoodIsNotNice
* HatesBeingTouched: A camera tries to go in for a close-up of him, but a DeathGlare makes it go as far back as possible.
* HeartbrokenBadass: [[MindScrew Who the hell knows what's going on]], but his post-TRMGO appearances have him even more miserable than he was in the show, as you would be too if your ReplacementGoldfish family had all died.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He's disgusted by the con-goers who look like freaks, but is more than happy to sleep with a few of the hot ones.
* MysteriousPast: At one point, he apparently worked for a lady named Stacy. Or maybe it was [[TheStasi Stasi]].
* NiceHat: Always has a sailor's cap on.
* NotSoStoic: When he finds Donnie's hat in the woods, he is genuinely worried and scared.
* OnlySaneMan: He is a little too... off to qualify, but he still sees through Donnie and Rebecca's idiocy.
* PerpetualFrowner: Making the moments where he's happy with someone all the sweeter.
* ProperlyParanoid: At some point before The Blair Witch Hangover, he fitted Donnie's phone with a tracking device because he knew the director would get himself into trouble.
* RatedMForManly
* ReallyGetsAround: At one anime con, he had a sexy Pikachu and two Princess Leia slave girls in his hotel room.
* ShellShockedVeteran: He's not proud of that lifetime of killing living creatures.
* SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer: For whatever reason he doesn't show up in the teaser advertising the show.
* StoicSpectacles
* SugarAndIcePersonality: He starts out fondly calling Quinn a a good friend before remembering his reputation and saying he just meant that he's a good camera-man. Does the same with Donnie in the season one finale, where he act like his protectiveness of him was just because of a paycheck.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Quinn.
* TragicKeepsake: His family either died or went missing when the wall fell, but he still wears his wedding ring.
* TranquilFury: When looking for Donnie. That's until he finds his hat, and is actually shaking when he tells the camera the "director's down".
* ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption: In his words, "there's nothing that can't be solved by shooting at it".
* UndyingLoyalty: "A good German never leaves a comrade behind."
* YankTheDogsChain: He loses his original family when the wall falls, creates a ReplacementGoldfish family with Donnie and the others, loses them through no fault of anyone in-universe, and to make it worse, he seems to be the only one left truly alive. As one might expect, he's not happy.

!! Quinn
-> Played by Jim Jarosz

The Irish makeup artist of ''Demo Reel'' who is also definitely not a mercenary, nor was he a member of the IRA.

* TheAlcoholic: As per the stereotype.
* BadassBeard: Compared to Donnie's thin goatee and the other men's clean-shaveness, his is massive and awesome.
* BloodKnight: His military background is "un-fucking-defeated".
** EveryoneHasStandards: Even he's surprised when they hear a noise and Rebecca instantly grabs the gun in his hand before going off to check it out.
* CarpetOfVirility: Not afraid to show off his hairy underarms.
* CrazyPrepared: He always has booze and weapons on hand in case there's an attack.
* FightingIrish: It gets him in trouble in episode two.
* FlatCharacter: Especially in comparison to Karl, Rebecca, Donnie and Tacoma. He's just there to be an Irish stereotype, even in his good moments.
* GoodIsNotNice
* HiddenDepths: Who knew he could cook?
* HiddenHeartOfGold: When Karl leaves for the con with Donnie, he starts showing a lot of protectiveness towards Rebecca and even some towards Tacoma.
* {{Hunk}}: We get tickets to the gun show in episode four, as he's dressed in a flimsy wife beater and not much else.
* KnifeNut
* LeeroyJenkins: Charges headlong into danger whenever someone he cares about is in trouble, even when they're telling him not to.
* ManlyTears: Even he's tearing up at the “Blue Patches” sequel.
* MrFanservice: Donnie may have been the HomoeroticSubtext pony, but he was still the main character. Quinn spends most of time standing around in a wife-beater and making snarky comments.
* NiceHat
* ObsessedWithFood: When Tacoma gets pelted with Swedish pancakes as part of a SWAG warning, his first thought is to cook up some bacon to make it a complete breakfast.
* OnlyOneName: Even the credits to the ''TheSixthSense'' parody credit him as "[[MyNameIsQuestionMarks Quinn ???????]]"
* OddFriendship: Develops one with Rebecca over their mutual love of guns and similar jobs.
* {{Oireland}}
* PetTheDog: He finds Donnie intensely irritating, but when the director thinks he's going crazy, still gives him a grandmother-approved alcohol/milk that always calmed her down.
* RedOniBlueOni: The passionate red to Karl's stoic blue.
* RecklessSidekick: Serves as the younger, slightly dumber assistant to Karl, but takes charge more whenever he leaves.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Rebecca/Tacoma. When Tacoma upsets her and she storms off, he tells him "this is the part where you go after her and fight".
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Karl.
* TortureTechnician
-->'''Quinn:''' (''holding a knife'') Lemme get that make-up off.
-->'''[=DuPre=]:''' No, Quinn, not again.
* UndyingLoyalty: When Karl gets shit on by the turkey. "Nobody puts their arse on my friend. I'm gonna go after her!"
* WesternTerrorists: He ''would'' be one if he were a former IRA member, which he's totally not.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Supporting Cast]]

!! Donnie's Wife
-> Played by Creator/MaraWilson

Donnie [=DuPre=]'s as-yet-unnamed wife, off of whose paychecks Donnie makes his living. They have a strained relationship and rarely see each other since she's off on business trips most of the time.

* DomesticAbuser: While [[LeftHanging there may have been more issues than what we were told]], she still emotionally stonewalls Donnie until he gives up trying to talk to her, their pre-nup was ''huge'', and sends him money through the post instead of actually talking to him.
* TheGhost: She was only heard over the phone once, never seen.
* HappyMarriageCharade
* IceQueen: From the way he hugs himself when talking about her, it's safe to assume she doesn't give out much affection.
* MarriedToTheJob: It's implied that her job is more important to her than her husband.
* NoNameGiven

!! [[spoiler:Tom Collins]], the Head of SWAG
-> Played by Steven Harper

The director of the Swede Actor's Guild (SWAG), a group of filmmakers dedicated to remaking movies in the style of ''BeKindRewind''. He insists that the makers of ''Demo Reel'' join their organization... or else.

* AxCrazy
* BigBad
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He does genuinely treat the members of his guild like a family, and people leaving him out of disgust for what he did to Donnie is the breaking point that leads him to outright stalking Rebecca and Tacoma.
* TheFaceless: He appears only in white silhouette against a black background [[spoiler:until the final episode]].
* [[spoiler: HumiliationConga: Suffers well deserved beatings from almost all of Team Demo Reel for destroying a video tribute to Donnie's late mother]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He likes Christmas parties and gets upset when his minions call him out on anything, but he's all about inflicting slow and painful punishment instead of going in for a quick kill.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Calling [[DraggedIntoDrag Tacoma]] a “girly little bitch” after Rebecca just gave him a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown doesn't win him any points.
* [[PsychoExGirlfriend Psycho Ex Boyfriend]]: Really acts like one to Donnie; wanting to destroy him for no reason that even Tacoma or Rebecca can see, getting turned on by setting that destroying plan into motion, leaving stalkerish phone messages on his machine, and screaming that he won't be getting ignored.
* PsychopathicManchild: Demo Reel treading on his territory and being sucky in the process is the only reason why he wants Donnie destroyed and the others scared.
* VocalDissonance: He has a [[SuburbanKnights Malachite]]-like voice, but not the body to go with it.

!! Fabrizio
-> Played by [[WebVideo/TheLastAngryGeek Brian Heinz]]

The tenant of Demo Reel's warehouse and Rebecca's employer. Probably a mobster.

* AffablyEvil: Assuming he really is a mafioso, he's still genuinely friendly to his neighbors.
* TheMafia
* OnlySaneMan: Compared to his somewhat violent comrades (that we've never seen), he seems relatively friendly.
* TheSecretOfLongPorkPies: It remains unknown what exactly is in his meatballs...
* StageMagician: Likes to perform magic tricks while he's drunk.
* StrawMisogynist: While nicer than the other mafia members, still calls Rebecca a bimbo right to her face, is only there in the actress speech to complain about Kathy Bates being HollywoodHomely, and contrasts Quinn's anger over Tacoma hurting Rebecca by not giving a damn.

!! Fanatic Fan Family
-> Played by Jason Laws, Jori Laws and Briana Laws

The family that [[spoiler: kidnap Donnie and hold him hostage while forcing him to watch the bad films he did as a child]]

* AbusiveParents: When they're backed into the corner, the father tells the daughter to say she's sorry and gives a smug smile like that'll fix everything. [[PapaWolf Donnie]] calls him out on it.
* BaitTheDog: They start out kinda creepy but helpful, and there's signs of just not being mentally well, but when the [[spoiler: drugging reveal]] comes, you're left with "no, they really are terrible people".
* CreepyChild: The daughter, Liz, has no problem with terrifying Donnie just because she wants to see him scared. [[spoiler:She's also in on the medical relaxant plan and even reminds her parents that they haven't drugged him recently.]]
* {{Dirty Coward}}s: When they see Donnie free and righteously pissed, they instantly back into a corner and try a JustJokingJustification.
* HenpeckedHusband: While she's just as bad, Jill whacks Adam twice for his NeverMyFault behavior and he instantly apologizes just to please her.
* IgnoredEpiphany: Any effect Donnie's ending rant might have had on them goes away in seconds, as Liz just {{squee}}s over the camera, Jill looks insulted and Adam looks confused.
* JustJokingJustification: After all their bullshit, they expect Donnie to forgive them with "we were just having some fun" and "we didn't mean it".
* LackOfEmpathy: Their response to Donnie's WorldOfCardboardSpeech about he views himself as a complete failure is to tease him for "almost" getting an emotional response from them.
* LoonyFan: A whole family of them!
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Towards Donnie. They even watch him while he's sleeping and their closeness scares him when he wakes up. [[spoiler:That they've made him helpless from muscle relaxants adds an extra dosage of creepy.]]
** While the camera cuts away before Donnie falls on the floor, at one point Adam deliberately makes Jill push him off the bed so they can "help" get him up again.
* PetTheDog: It's not enough to set him free, but Jill lets out a sob after they've laughed at Donnie telling them what happened to his mom.
* PrecociousCrush: Liz appears to have a {{squick}}y one for Donnie, as she gets right in his face while watching him sleep (when he wakes up she jumps back), holds his hand while they're watching "Galaxy Battle" and takes great delight at seeing him in pain.
* {{Psychopathic Manchild}}ren: The parents sleep on ''SpongebobSquarepants'' bedsheets.
* ShoutOut: To Annie Wilkes, the villain of ''Film/{{Misery}}''.
* TheSociopath: All of them, but Liz really seemed to find Donnie nearly freezing to death, realizing that he's not going to get saved in time, or giving up and looking for a place to die fantastically hilarious.
* SugaryMalice: They seem to be of the mind that you can say or do any cruel thing you want if you hide it under a stepford sweet voice.
* VillainBall: [[spoiler:The medicine that Donnie was kept being sedated by needs constant doses otherwise.]]
* UngratefulBastard: They keep Donnie in their home under the explanation that they are trying to treat him from injuries he sustained the night before, and show their fandom toward him. [[spoiler:They are actually giving him muscle relaxants. They rewatch his old movies not because they mistake them for being good, but so they can ''laugh at how bad an actor he was.'' When Donnie explains that the reason he gave a bad performance was because ''he just got word that his mother killed herself while he was shooting that scene'' and sarcastically apologizes to them, the family just thinks he's acting again! No wonder Donnie held a knife at all three the minute he got wise!]]
