Played by: Heather Graham
For all of the shambling, frat-boy charms of its three leads, the best moments in The Hangover belong to its secondary characters. Think back on those scenes featuring Mike Tyson (playing himself, with a sublime self-awareness), or the strangely flamboyant gangster Leslie Chow, or police officers Franklin and Gardner (“You’re holding 50,000 volts, little man. Don’t be afraid to ride the lightning.”) Just as memorable are the brief appearances by Jade, the stripper who weds Stu (Ed Helms) in a Rohypnol-fueled midnight ceremony that none of the fellas seem to remember. Jade is perhaps the most unbelievable of the supporting characters—a goofy inversion of the stereotypical flinty Vegas dancer (and even her name, as she is as un-jaded as they come)—yet Graham totally sells the part with her sunny, wide-eyed perkiness.
