* Valve wanted someone with the vocal talent of Louis Gossett Jr. to voice the extra-dimensional beings known as the Vortigaunt in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', based on his performance in ''Film/EnemyMine''. They ended up with... Louis Gossett Jr. Too bad not for the following episode releases though.

*** Rhona Mitra can also be considered a poor man's Kate Beckinsale. Especially since she starred in ''Film/UnderworldRiseOfTheLycans'' as a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute for Beckinsale's character.
