1. KEANU REEVES AS KEVIN LOMAX IN DEVIL'S ADVOCATE (1997)

When this Florida defense attorney discovers that his client, a teacher accused of child molestation, did indeed molest his students, he continues to defend him, concerned more with maintaining a perfect trial record than with justice. As if knowingly defending a pedophile weren't bad enough, when one of the man's teary-eyed young victims is forced to take the stand, Lomax rips into her, destroying her credibility and getting his client off. Then, fittingly, he goes to work for Satan's law firm.
