Kevin Pollak as Jerry — The Devil’s Agent
Henry Spooner would sell his soul for a date with the most popular girl… and now he finally has the chance! Unpopular, un-cool and totally un-datable, Henry doesn’t have a hell of a chance with super-hot cheerleader Laurie Petler … or does he? Tempted by the Devil’s sleaze-ball agent, Henry soon gets his hands on fame, fortune and Laurie. But just as his every wish begins to come true, Henry has the hilarious realization that, when it comes to a deal with the Devil, getting everything he ever wanted may just be a whole lot more trouble than he bargained for.

Henry Spooner: Oh no, no, no. You’re not. You are not bothering me.
Laurie Petler: It’s just, I was wondering since – I am not doing very well in Shakespeare and everything, and I know you are doing very well… So… I was kind of hoping, maybe you could…
Henry Spooner: You want me to tutor you?
Laurie Petler: I always want to meet someone who is different, you know, someone who didn’t care about popularity, and all that Cheerleader stuff. Just see me for who I am.
