One thing about MacBeth is that Lady Macbeth is a very strong figure behind him. How about a politician, such as Bill Clinton? His wife is very ambitious, as is Bill Clinton's wife Hillary, who has been called a Lady Macbeth in the media before.

Or, perhaps you could say someone like Dick Cheney, who seeks power and will do anything to get it.

For Banquo, you could run with that theme and make him Colin Powell-- someone who went along with an evil plan but perhaps was not the main actor in it.
