Charlie (also known as 11 Dollars Guy) (portrayed by comedian Brian Klugman) is a minor character in Cloverfield.
Charlie first appeared prominently in the teaser trailer; towards the beginning of the trailer he directs the comment "You owe me 11 dollars," to Rob. Charlie again appears at the very end of the trailer, stating "This is going to be the best night ever!", which is not seen in the film. He also appears in the extended theatrical trailer, though briefly, and is only visible during the short party scene at the beginning.
In the movie he is seen several times during the party, first when Hud tries to talk to Marlena Diamond but his cowardice gets the best of him at the last second and he runs into Charlie, who gives a short testimonial for Rob Hawkins. He appears several more times during the party and is last seen talking on the roof after the initial earthquake signaling the monster's attack. He is not seen again for the rest of the film and his ultimate fate is unknown.
- A deleted scene shows an extended version of Charlie telling Rob how to find Hentai (Japanese Porn).
- After the premiere of the Teaser Trailer, he was dubbed "11 Dollars Guy" by fans.
