Get ready to feel some divine inspiration as we rank the best (and worst) characters on HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones. Created by Danny McBride, this hilarious comedy stars John Goodman, Danny McBride, and Adam DeVine and centers on a dysfunctional yet filthy rich family of televangelists.
Jesse’s always getting into trouble, while Judy’s constantly seeking her father’s attention - regardless of whether it’s warranted. Kelvin’s the youngest sibling who’s always trying to prove his worth, and Keefe is a former satanic cult member who’s recently turned to the light. And then there are all the hilarious recurring characters like Levi (who's played by executive producer Jody Hill) and Scotty, who's out to get some of that sweet, sweet Gemstones loot.
Who's your favorite? Vote up all the best characters on The Righteous Gemstones and vote down all the folk you’d prefer to stay quiet and sit in the back.
