* {{Lzherusskie}}: Scotsman David [=McCallum=] cast as Russian Illya Kuryakin.



* YouLookFamiliar: Guest stars were frequently recycled in unrelated roles.
** The all time champion of "YouLookFamiliar" on the series is probably character actor [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0661416/ Woodrow Parfrey]], who had 5 guest appearances in unrelated roles in the first three seasons. By 1966 (one appearance in the last half of season 2, and two appearances in the first half of season 3) he was probably inspiring "HeyItsThatGuy..." moments among the remaining fans of the show.

*** The CompilationMovie ''One Spy Too Many'' (compiled from footage of the second season two-part season opener, "Alexander the Greater Affair (Parts I and II)") included an additional romantic subplot (not included in the original series episode) featuring actress Yvonne Craig as a relative of Mr. Waverly's who is also an U.N.C.L.E. communications [[BridgeBunnies Bridge Bunny]]. In one scene she does the "tanning under a sunlamp in Headquarters" routine [[MsFanservice in a]] ''[[MsFanservice very]]'' [[MsFanservice skimpy bikini]] (probably too skimpy to have passed Broadcast Standards in 1965 when the episode first aired).

Robert Vaughn was billed as the star, cast as the American, Napoleon Solo, U.N.C.L.E.'s top enforcement agent. His sidekick, Russian native Illya Kuryakin, was intended by the producers to be merely an occasionally recurring minor character, but fans became so smitten with [[Creator/DavidMcCallum David [=McCallum=]]]'s portrayal of Kuryakin that he [[EnsembleDarkhorse almost immediately became a series regular]], [[BreakoutCharacter was billed as a co-star early in the first season]], and rose to equal billing with Vaughn by the second season. Completing the regular U.N.C.L.E. contingent was veteran character actor Leo G. Carroll, cast as Alexander Waverly, U.N.C.L.E.'s chief in their New York headquarters.

* BadassBookworm: Illya Kuryakin holds a Masters degree from the Sorbonne and a PhD in quantum physics from the University of Cambridge. Several episodes also show him geeking out in the U.N.C.L.E. labs between field missions, often wearing a pair of [[BrainySpecs tinted large-framed glasses]] to boot!
