1. Other: I'd be the TV news reporter who dramatically takes off his glasses during the news...
"We have received word now that the virus has spread to critical levels in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Chicago, and that hospitals across the country are filled to capacity with the dead and the dying."

(Cue dramatic glasses removal)

"Ladies and gentlemen, we will stay with you on this channel as long as we can, as long as we have bodies to man the cameras and read the news. The important thing now is to stay calm, stay indoors, and be with your loved ones."

4. The cute female sidekick
who was merely a professional colleague in the book but is a girlfriend in the movie so the film can have an R rating for nudity.

6. You forgot
the Governor/Mayor/other politician who insists there's no problem and refuses to allow the brave scientist to have access to information about his/her state/city.

and

the beautiful, devoted girlfriend of the brave scientist, who eventually succumbs, beautifully, to the flu while the scientist is trying to save the population

and

the loudmouth freeper type who doesn't believe the flu exists and breaks out of a quarantined area, thereby spreading it before he falls over dead.

8. The Televangelist
Who thunders from his TV pulpit that the epidemic is God's Vengeance on the world for their sinful activities, and who gets eaten by a pack of starving pit bulls whose owners have perished.
