* AmbiguouslyGay: Uncle Ned (the actor Dallas Roberts is typecast as gay despite being straight in real life; any non-gay role he plays inevitably has a bit of this).

* HeyItsThatGuy: Vera Farmiga, who plays the mom in Joshua also plays the mom in ''Film/{{Orphan}}'. Coincidentally both characters have their share of mental instability problems and at odds with their mother-in-law.
** Franchise/StarTrek fans may recognize Joshua as playing Young Spock in the [[Film/StarTrek 2009 film]]. Oddly enough, Young Kirk was played by Jimmy Bennett who played Vera's non evil son in the other evil kid movie she was in.
