Current role: Jonah Ryan, Veep (HBO)

All praises due to Tony Hale, who deserved his recent Emmy for Veep, but the show’s biggest laughs usually come courtesy of Timothy Simons’s odious aide Jonah Ryan. The self-proclaimed “go-to guy for all things White House” is also the guy everybody hates—not that he cares. The self-important aide is the butt of everyone’s jokes, and his repeated attempts at stunting despite the haters make him the breakout character on the HBO satire.
