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.

It began with a shout-out to Amy Poehler in Mean Girls, then expanded to Zodiac, Nomadland, Marriage Story, The MCU and beyond.

Some went sincere.

Some got silly.

Some celebrated scary movies.

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?
