  • The Danza: Joe, as played by Joseph Gordon Levitt.

    Old Joe 
Played By: Bruce Willis

Played By: Emily Blunt

  • Action Mom: Handy with a shotgun when it comes down to it.
  • Badass Boast: Her first major line has her delivering one while aiming the rifle at the apparent intruder in the corn field. Played with in that Joe quickly realises she's overcompensating - as she's spending too much time describing what she's going to do than actually doing it.
  • Good Bad Girl: She used to be a Hard-Drinking Party Girl but has now reformed. Or is trying to.
  • Mama Bear: For Cid.
  • Morality Pet: Cid's transformation into the Rain Maker is implied to have been started by watching her get killed. Her influence is what causes him to spare older Joe.
  • Parental Abandonment: She didn't want to have Cid and dumped him on her sister for years.

Played By: Paul Dano

    Kid Blue 
Played By: Noah Segan

  • Big Bad Wannabe: Blue has aspirations to be something greater, but he's far too incompetent to be taken seriously.
  • Butt Monkey: Things rarely go right for Kid Blue, although it's usually his own fault.
  • Determinator: Credit where credit's due; he doesn't give up, even if it's the smart thing to do.
    • Especially since this involved driving a hoverbike with a single broken hand, pulling off reasonably accurate shots with his offhand in the meantime.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Mishandling his gun and being mocked by his co-workers establishes Blue as a notorious fuck-up.
  • The Gunfighter Wannabe: Blue wants to be deadly with a gun, but has clearly been watching too many Westerns. Or maybe not enough.
  • Gun Twirling: Frequently does this, even though he's shot himself in the foot before.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He has this relationship with Abe.

Played By: Piper Perabo
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Two examples. Her son turns out to be one of the potential candidates to become the future Rain Maker. Old Joe visiting her apartment also leads to Abe's crew catching him.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Implied. She turns down Joe's offer to give her half his silver, insisting she'd rather earn her money on her own.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: She seems good-natured enough, and comforts Joe when he's feeling guilt over Seth's death. She's also working as a prostitute to provide for her son.

Played By: Jeff Daniels

Played By: Pierce Gagnon

Played By: Garrett Dillahunt

  • Punch Clock Villain: He's just doing his job, and Young Joe even seems to respect him.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: He trains his gun on Cid when startled by him coming down the stairs, but immediately raises his hands to show he's not a threat once it's clear Cid is a child.
