Movie stuff you only just realised... - Page 3

post #101 of 6891

The Nick Cage/Volvo Connection

An old favorite of mine:

In The Rock, Stanley Goodspeed admits to being a coward and a square by revealing to Connery's John Patrick Mason that he 'Drives a beige Volvo.'

In Con Air, Cameron Poe writes Vince Larkin a secret memo on the doomed junkie 'Pinball,' and drops him from the plane, only to crash on Stargate SG-1's Don Davis' beige Volvo.

In Face/Off (Not a Bruckheimer film), Sean Archer (Wearing a Castor Troy flesh-mask) raids a valet's key box, and steals...a beige Volvo.

In Snake Eyes, Nick Cage acts in a horrible film. (No connection, I just consider it my civic duty to inform everyone I meet, and insist they never watch it).

Rami is also one of the guys brainstorming names for the Hula Hoop in the Hudsucker Proxy.

I, Robot's title in Spanish speaking countries is Yo, Robot.

Which sounds more like a Will Smith movie.

He always sounds like he's trying to get rid of a particularly troublesome bowel movement.

As for the person who mentioned X2 script... I did not know that. As for the first one, I know there were a fair few uncredited "polishers", including Joss Whedon. I think the only segment of Whedon's that made it into the final movie is the Cyclops/Wolverine exchange where Wolverine says "You're a dick".

Another bit of trivia that may or may not be known: If you look closely outside The Winchester in Shaun of the Dead, you'll see a zombie "Tyres", the bike courier from Spaced. It the scene where they all walk toward the pub pretending to be zombies.

Also the "toad hit by lightning" line. Whedon has defended it, saying Berry's delivery was all off.

Whatever, Joss.

Those made me laugh out loud far more than they actually should have

- Adam Baldwin of Serenity/Firefly is no relation to Alec, Stephen, William, or Daniel Baldwin.

Didn't know that.

Harvey Stephens, the little kid who played Damien in Omen hasn´t had much of an actors career, although in 1993 he appeared in I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a Meat Hook, and Now I Have a Three-Picture Deal at Disney .
Which was directed by Ben Affleck(!).

Holy cow, you're right. That's a new one.

I just found out that the actor Jonathan Brandis who played the main character in "Neverending Story 2" and who was in the tv movie version of "IT" and the tv series "Sea Quest" committed suicide a couple of years ago. That is very sad news.

Connie Nielsen i guess

the chic that gets naked at the end of Devil's Advocate, and looks outstanding doing it, is the same chic who doesn't get naked in Gladitor.

Bodhi Elfman (Jenna's husband) was also in Collateral.

A number of sopranos actors had roles in Goodfellas namely, Pussy Bomponsiero, Paulie Walnuts, Chris Moltisanti and Larry Boy Barese.

The actor who played Walter Donovan in 'The Last Crusade' also played Gen. Veers in Empire.

Stuntman Pat Roach had roles in all three Indiana Jones movies.

In The Matrix during the scene where Morpheus is introducing Neo to everyone there's a shot of a plaque on the wall which has the year the ship was christened on it.

Robert Duvall was in 'Bullitt' as a cab driver.

Connie Nielsen was in 'Rushmore' as a really hot mom.

Charlie Sheen shows up in a cameo in Loaded Weapon 1, wearing a shirt with the name 'Gern' on it. He wears the same shirt, with the same name in The Arrival while he is hacking into his neigbor's satellite dishes.

Jerry Anderson (of Thunderbirds fame) turned down Stanley Kubrick’s beggings for him to do the model work on 2001: A Space Odyssey, thrice.

Doug Trumbull must send him a Christmas card every year.

Okay, so I learned this a while ago. But it’s a neat story nonetheless.

In The Matrix: Revolutions, the bench the Oracle sits at has a plaque that says "In Memory of Thomas A. Anderson".

In each LotR movie, Peter Jackson makes a cameo.

He´s the spooky voice that starts talking towards the end of the song.

The actor who plays R.K. Maroon in Who Framed Roger Rabbit also plays a bum during the Skid Row song in Little Shop Of Horrors.

Oh, and David Spade makes his film debut in Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol.

Jake LaMotta, the real guy, was in "The Hustler". He played the bartender. Maybe that's why Scorsese made "The Color of Money"

I just watched Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind again last night and noticed that George Michael Bluth from Arrested Development is the young Chuck Barris.

Oh, and Jack Black is the villian in Neverending Story III.

He's also the voice on the CB in Joy Ride, but not the dude who we see at the end.

John Ratzenberger was in Empire Strikes Back, as Maj. Bren Derlin. I haven't the foggiest clue who this character is, nor have I ever noticed anyone looking like Cliff from Cheers (he's probably sans mustache, which would add to the confusion).

He was also in the first two Superman movies, in small (but noticable) roles.

Well, he's not wearing his postal uniform and he doesn't have a Boston accent.

The odd thing is that Maj. Bren Derlin does live with his mother.

Weird.

The geeky tech guy in The Pretender and the badass with the two whips in Rundown are both played by Jon Gries.

Virtually every cool line or scene from "Heat" was on TV 10 years earlier, verbatim, in Michael Mann's "Crime Story" TV show.

John Glover voices the Riddler in "Batman:TAS", plays Jason Woodrue the Bane-maker in "Batman and Robin", Lionel Luthor in "Smallville" and the creepy "Maybe he's fucking the dog too" hitman in "Payback".

Ron Perlman is the voice of Clayface. And he's really really good.
