1. Old-soul high school student and endgame love interest in a feminist, coming-of-age flick. It’s ostensibly set in the early '90s, but features lots of anachronistically retro stylings.
2. Literature major in the '70s, who unwittingly falls in love with an adversarial professor’s daughter. Midway, the film abruptly turns into a whodunit.
3. Male lead in a Seattle-set, mumblecore dramedy. The fire soundtrack, unfortunately, ends up stealing the film.
4. Small-time drug pusher and police informant with pithy one-liners, and a sob story that unfolds (unsubtly) as the gritty cop film progresses.
5. Stoner who’s crashing on a elderly, distant relative’s couch. The movie charts their blossoming bond in the face of an exaggerated generation gap, e.g. a too-long scene involving smartphones.
6. A stereotypically likeable, 2D beach bum in an Adam Sandler movie. Helps the Sandler character get frisky with a girl who’s way out of his league, in true midlife-crisis, wish-fulfilment form.
7. Pete Doherty in the inevitable, totally unauthorised Kate Moss biopic.
8. Minor but devastatingly effective character/plot device in a country music mockumentary. In the third act, it’s revealed Miller’s star crooner is totally faking his Southern twang.
9. Slightly older mentor figure/lead character’s first crush in a fantasy film, based on a mythology-butchering cult series of YA novels.
10. Douche-y rich boy antagonist in one of the Fast franchise films. There’s a confrontation in his private booth at a seedy strip club, after which he orders a hit on the heroes. Said assassination attempt leads to (what else?) a car chase.
11. Teen mall Goth in an Oscar-bait, coming-out tearjerker. Miller plays his character at every stage of life, including an unnecessary motion-capture performance for the infancy segment of the film.
12. Enigmatic supporting player in an alternate-reality setup (à la Her or The Lobster)
13. Creepily angelic guide-figure in a CGI-heavy Disney blockbuster, the kind in which characters can’t decide between having 21st century American accents and half-assed, vaguely British ones.
14. The same character as before, only after a late-stage, surprise unveiling as a villain.
15. Toadette in the live-action Mario adaptation. Hey, if Ryan Reynolds can play Pikachu, the sky’s the limit.
