* EasterEgg: They occasionally hide jokes in the credits; for example, ''Film/NoCountryForOldMen'' has a credit for "the one right tool" (referencing a line from one of Chigurh's {{Hannibal Lecture}}s during the film), and ''Film/ASeriousMan'' has a disclaimer at the end of the credits assuring the audience that "No Jews were harmed during the making of this film.", ''TrueGrit'' credits Ethan Coen's son Buster as ''Mr. Damon's Abs Double" and ''Film/BurnAfterReading'' credits "The Walrus".

Joel has been married to actress Creator/FrancesMcDormand - whom he met on the set of their first film ''Film/BloodSimple'' - since 1984. She's since appeared in many of their films, including ''Film/{{Fargo}}'' for which she won the UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for Best Actress. She said of the event "After all these years sleeping with the director, it's finally paid off." Ethan has been married to Tricia Cooke since 1990, who worked as an editor on several of the brothers' films.

'''Joel David Coen''' (born November 29, 1954) and '''Ethan Jesse Coen''' (born September 21, 1957) have been making films and thumbing their noses at traditional genre boundaries since 1984. Bouncing from FilmNoir to screwball comedy, from quirky indies to big-budget studio pieces, they function as a two-man writer-director-producer-editor SiblingTeam.
