Portrayed by Al Pacino, John Milton was introduced as a representative of a New York law firm in the 1997 film The Devil’s Advocate. Initially portrayed as a shrewd, calm and charismatic man, John was later revealed to be Satan himself, which explains his ability to manipulate people and his hedonistic lifestyle that involves promiscuity and drugs.

While some viewers might have guessed John’s deceitful nature early in the film, protagonist Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) was shocked when he ultimately discovered that his mysterious boss is actually an evil incarnate.
