It’s an old chestnut of thespians that there’s no such thing as small parts, just small actors. The idea is, essentially, that even a “nothing” role can give a true performer a chance to shine. Masterful character actors have built careers on this. Clever comedians have stolen scenes. Captivating dramatic talent has left us awed with only a few minutes of screen time. All of the above have the chance to be celebrated with the Twitter prompt of: Name a smaller role with a bigger impact.

Some celebrated scary movies.
Name a smaller role with a bigger impact… he’s only on screen in the 1 hour 33 minute film for 17 minutes… bigger impact in a smaller role? I mean the movie is named after him. So do we think @MichaelKeaton as Beetlejuice counts? I say hell yeah it’s showtime! https://t.co/inDguKJQui pic.twitter.com/zIDJGgIV7w— Tommy GB ✌🏻 (@TommyGB64) March 22, 2021
And then there was the superb.
Which is your favorite pick of the above? Which is a small part that had an impact you don’t see represented here?
