Octopus brings up a good point; it's best to hang back and focus on surviving and pushing until you have a good understanding of what champions do. When I first came into LoL I took the time to research guides and ability lists to ensure I knew what every champion did. I remembered from DotA that you need to know how the other heroes work too, not just your own. So I suggest taking the time to look all that up under that new "Game Information" page.

Play each hero a few times so you can learn what they do. That way it takes less time to know what abilities to watch out for. Plus you might find heroes you like that you didn't expect you would.

Ryze. Can't get much easier than rune prisoning someone and rolling your face over the other keys for instant kills.
And if they buy items to counter you? Grats the mercury greaves and FoN/SV basically turn you into a CCing -40% damage aura- so you can't go wrong.
Also very hard to die due to rune prison again, so as a new player you won't end up feeding.

I think the best way to break it down is by type of characters. For me, i am only good at Carrys and Tanks, but i fail pretty bad at gankers. The attributes that make for a newb friendly character are: easy to play, easy to survive, easy to last hit and push, and easy support other gankers

Easiest to play character by role:
Tank - Allistair, Good CC, survivability, and a heal
Carry - Ashe, CC, range, and great at last hitting
Ganker - Twitch? not a lot of info on this guy, but hes basically a stealth teemo in my opinion
Melee DPS - Tyrandere with a tank build
Caster DPS - Annie, great pusher and a decent safety ability

All you really have to do is spam Wild Cards and you've got yourself a pro lane pusher ;o

This may sound weird but I think Fiddlesticks is a GREAT starting character, it teaches a person how to use different tools at their arsenal since you have a fear and a silence. He is not as squishy as other heros because of these tools (along with drain) so a player learns how to pace themselves and how to look for your skills to work together and also to coordinate kills with teammates.

scion, hes like skeleton king from dota, tanky and really only has one button to click. if your friend is being crazy with the running into towers and stuff, tell him never to run past towers ever. this has worked for 3 of my friends who have never even played an rts before. they are still pretty bad but at least they have a pretty decent understanding of the game now and contribute to the team while not feeding. it also helps if you have vent and play a support hero like taric while hes learning so you can keep a close eye on him.

I can't agree on Teemo, he was the first hero I tried out, and I thought he was completely useless when I kept getting owned. I switched to Cho'Gath / Alistar and found it ALOT easier to learn to play.

(I did eventually go back to Teemo and now he's my main :P)

Giving my character a bad name I see.
