Buzz McCallister | Devin Ratray

Seth Devlin | Alex Greenwald

Seth Devlin was a character in the 2001 film, Donnie Darko. Devin was a funny and not very successful bully, but he gave it his all so we have to give him credit for trying. His sidekick in bullying is none other than another funny man – Seth Rogan. The two try to make fun of anyone who is different than them, and fail miserably most of the time.

Seth Devlin | Alex Greenwald

Alex Greenwald, who landed the role of Seth is much more than an actor these days. Greenwald is first and foremost a musician, specifically being the lead singer of the rock band, Phantom Planet. He is also a part of another band, called JJAMZ at first and later changed to Phases. Alex is also engaged to actress Brie Larson!

Nancy | Fairuza Balk

In 1996, the film, The Craft, was released. The four main characters were all picked on initially, until they got magical powers. Nancy took her powers to another level and turned against everyone basically. So the victim became the bully, who was sadly defeated by her own ego.

Fred O’Bannion | Ben Affleck

In the 1993 film, Dazed and Confused, the character of Fred O’Bannion is one man you don’t want to mess with. Using his cricket paddle to reign terror within his community, his fraternity hazing techniques were horrific at best.

Johnny Lawrence | William Zabka

The Karate Kid would not be the same without a bully like, Johnny Lawrence to push the young karate kid himself to greater heights. The character of Johnny was there to push the karate kid down so that he would be the best of the best. If only it worked out that way for him, we were pleased at the end.

The 1988 film, Heathers, centered around three girls with the name Heather and an additional girl in the clique young women in the high school based film.

Deebo | Tommy Lister

Deebo was big, tall, and always had a scowl on his face. He was the bully in the film, Friday, in 1995. Deebo was the resident drug dealer, who was not about to let anyone ruin his business. Deebo made sure business was running smoothly, no matter who or what came in his way.

Bobby Kent | Nick Stahl

The 2001 film, is based on a horrific true story, of a group of teens who plotted to kill their ‘friend’ who had been an abusive figure in their lives for years.

Jack | Tom Chapin

Jack was a villain in a different way. The older of the boy in the 1963 film, Lord of the Flies, and the book adaptation, Jack broke the group of boys into two and let his obsessions get the better of him, so much so that his behavior lead to the death of two castaways.

Jack | Tom Chapin

Tom Chapin, in his only acting role, played the role with an understated insanity that only he could have. There is little known about Tom after his stint as Jack, however, his depiction of Jack was thought to have been very deep and profound, giving justice to the book.

Chris Hargensen | Nancy Allen

In the 1976 film, Carrie, there was one girl who made sure Carrie’s life would be even more hellish than it already was, that girl was Chris Hargensen.

Emma Small was one mean woman. She had it out for the sweet, Vienna, in the 1954 film, Johnny Guitar. Emma is the head of a gang who makes Vienna’s life miserable by burning down her saloon, and goes after her when she tried to end her life. Talk about girl drama!

Mister | Danny Glover

In the 1985 film, The Color Purple, actor Danny Glover plays the role of Mister, a wife beater and child abuser that is enough to make any viewer of this film dislike his character within the first scene.

Philip Stuckey | Jason Alexander

We all love the film, Pretty Woman. The 1990 film is a feel good movie with an out-there storyline for the time. Edward and Vivian are the main characters, but Edward’s best friend and business partner, Philip Stuckey is the bully of the film. He bullies Vivian into thinking she really is nothing more than a prostitute in Edward’s life, which we all know to be a lie.

The twin girls who have been separated years before, are trying to get their biological parents back together. Along the way they are also trying to get their dad to separate from the evil new fiancé who only wants to marry him for his money, played by Elaine Hendrix. She, obviosuly, is not pleased with the situation and acts accordingly. We chose Meredith Blake’s character to be included on our list because any time a grown up is portrayed picking on young girls, no matter what the circumstances are, it’s a good enough reason for including them.

Nikki Rodriguez | Elizabeth Rice

Just by the name of the movie she starred in, Odd Girl Out, it’s easy to guess that there will be some sort of bullying, especially when it comes to a teen movie.

Tommy Miller | Jesse James

Jesse James played the fourteen year old version of Tommy Miller, Kayleigh Miller’s sadistic brother in the psychological thriller film, The Butterfly Effect.

This scene is one of the hardest to watch and despite the fact that he was a relatively young boy and his actions were due to his harsh past, any type of bullying, whether it’s towards humans or animals, is simply unacceptable.

Let’s ignore the fact that we’re talking about the 1987 film that features Patrick Dempsey! who played the nerdy character, because our list has to do with bullies.

Subway Ghost | Vincent Schiavelli

Everybody fell in love with the heart-wrenching love story between Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore in the 1990 romantic thriller, Ghost, however fans were less fond of the Subway Ghost, who haunted Swayze’s ghost character when he dies in the movie. Although it was a ghost, it still had the same intimidating characteristics of any other human being. Spooky.

Regina George | Rachel McAdams

Ah, Regina George, she is probably the worst bully on this list. The character of Regina George dictated how her entire high school was run and made sure she had the run of the campus and home. She liked to make people feel little and take them down so she could feel powerful herself.
