Who would be some good characters who are commonly played at high levels of play for:

Solo Top
Jungler
Mid
Whatever roles go bottom (I'm a noob as you can see)

and if the person plays more than one role normally could you please add it and which they normally play more? I know some are versitile but there are just so many and I don't know where to start.

They change a fair amount, but the common champs I remember watching people play in the qualifiers:

Olaf (top or jungle)
Kha'zix (top or sometimes mid or jungle)
Elise (top or jungle)
Shen (top usually)
Wukong (top usually)
Katarina (top)
Xin Zhao (top)
Amumu (jungle)
Lee Sin (jungle, but he was nerfed recently)
Cho'Gath (jungle)
Karthus (mid)
Ryze (mid)
Twisted Fate (mid)
Kassadin (mid)
Lulu (support)
Nunu (support)
Blitzcrank (support)
Sona (support)
Miss Fortune (bot AD)
Graves (bot AD)
Ezreal (bot AD)
Kog'maw (bot AD)

Bot lane is usually one attack damage champ and one support champ.

If you're looking for champs to buy, though, I'd suggest just playing through the free ones until you find one that really clicks with you. It can take a long time to save the points to buy a 6k ip champ, and if you don't like the one you bought, it's kind of depressing. Generally, you'll get a pretty good feel for what champions are popular just by playing the game long enough to save up the ip to get them.

This will help.

It only lists the most common role for the champion. There are champions who can play mutiple roles like Xin Zhao (Jungler/Top), Jayce (Top/Mid).
