Michael from The Good Place

In The Good Place, Michael is a “Good Place” architect. His duty is to design towns suited for the good people in the afterlife. However, the big season one twist reveals his ulterior motives. Michael is actually a demon (a fire squid, specifically) who designed the town to torture the four humans. He underestimates their intelligence as they continue to solve his experiment. Giving up on torture, he joins them to create a better system for the afterlife, and softens as a character. In the series finale (spoiler!), Michael becomes human and is given a life on Earth. He is portrayed by Ted Danson, who also starred in Cheers.
