* ThrowItIn: The scene where Malkovich is hit in the head by a [[BuffySpeak drive-by beer canning]] wasn't in the script, and was the result of a drunk extra having some fun while the camera happened to be rolling. Director Spike Jonze found it hilarious and left it in the finished product, [[KarmaHoudini earning the extra a pay rise for having a line, and a SAG card in the process.]]

** {{Jossed}}. Spike Jonze made it up - it was actually John Cusack's writing partner who threw the can, and it was Jonze's idea to do it in the first place.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Creator/JohnMalkovich, who had the recognisable-but-not-a-superstar profile of a character actor and occasional popcorn villain. Also in-universe, everybody recognizes him from various movies they can't name, some of which he was never in.
** Octavia Spencer as the woman in the elevator who shows Craig how the 7 1/2 floor works.

* {{Defictionalization}}. A lot of people in the film compliment John Malkovich for his role as a jewel thief. However, as the character repeatedly pointed out, he'd never played a jewel thief by 1999. In 2003, he played a jewel thief in ''JohnnyEnglish''.

* DyeingForYourArt: One of the more memorable aspects of this film is that it cast Creator/JohnCusack and Creator/CameronDiaz--two of the most iconic actors in Hollywood at the time--and managed to make both of them practically ''unrecognizable''. Cusack appears with ponytail-length hair, a full-grown beard and nebbish glasses, while Diaz appears as a homely, frizzy-haired brunette. The makeup artists personally said that making Diaz look unattractive was one of the most challenging parts of the movie.
