Every Main Character In Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery Ranked Worst To Best
Spoiler Warning!
This story contains spoilers for "Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery."
9. Peg
Jessica Henwick does a solid job playing Peg, the beleaguered personal assistant to Kate Hudson's fabulously out-of-touch Birdie Jay. Unfortunately, Henwick never really has a standout moment like the rest of the cast, and her performance is underserved by a narrative that ignores Peg almost as much as the surrounding characters do, putting her last on the list.
8. Lionel Toussaint
Lionel Toussaint (Leslie Odom Jr.) is a scientist and one of the more serious characters in the film, which, unfortunately, makes him less fun to watch than the other, more cartoonish guests. When "Glass Onion" rewinds to reveal what the audience has been missing, we learn Lionel is even a bit of a snitch, and overall he just kinda sucks.
7. Duke Cody
Dave Bautista plays Duke Cody, a men's rights YouTuber who only uses that site because he's been kicked off of Twitch. While Bautista is good in the role, and Duke is a character who's fun to hate, his ranking is a matter of screen time; the character doesn't make as much of an impression as most of the others, landing him near the bottom of this list.
6. Whiskey
Whiskey (Madelyn Cline) is far deeper than first impressions suggest; she aspires to go to law school and knows her relationship with Duke isn't meant to last. She's just building a brand while she's young and already has one foot out the door, making her a more nuanced, interesting character than Duke that we can't help but root for.
5. Claire Debella
Kathryn Hahn, who plays Claire Debella, governor of Connecticut, handily sinks her teeth into a couple of comedic moments, and her performance elevates the character in this ranking. Unfortunately, unlike some of the other characters in "Glass Onion," there just isn't much to her.
