Jackie Talbot is an exact counterpart of the novel. He is a member of Billy Nolan´s gang and participated in the killing of the pig, whose blood was then put on a bucket and then thrown on Carrie, while the emptied bucket was later thrown to the ground, too, killing Tommy. During the destruction of Chamberlain he informs Billy about what is going on before going away. He survives the ordeal, but is later interrogated by Detective John Mulchaey, who exposes his involvement in the evil prank by presenting photos, that link him, Chris and Billy to the killing of the pig, whose blood was used for the prank. Trapped, he confesses everything and exonerates Sue.
His fate is unknown, but it is implied, that he was arrested for his involvement.
