Memorable Secondary Characters

Juno was the best movie I saw last year. Witty. Original. Best original screenplay? No kidding.

Not that No Country for Old Men wasn't worth seeing. It was. But between it and There Will be Blood (and yeah, Daniel Day Lewis=fabulous), and all the other testosterone-inspired films...sans women...well, let's just say Juno was a twinkle of glee in a sea of bloody violent gore. (I'm no shrinking violet, either...I count Pulp Fiction and Apocalypse Now among my all time favorite films.)

Here's a terrific guest blog from David Freeman about how Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody managed to make those secondary characters shine. (Thanks to Southern Comfort for the reference.)
