* HeyItsThatGuy: Jack from ''{{Film/Titanic 1997}}'' is Danny, his boss is [[Film/TheMummyTrilogy Imhotep]], his contact in the diamond company is TonyBlair from ''Film/TheQueen'', Sarah from ''{{Film/Labyrinth}}'' is Maddy, and the dad from ''Series/SeventhHeaven'' appears at the beginning and end of the film.
** Or, if you prefer, [[Film/{{Inception}} Cobb]] has given up the dream infiltration business and is chasing diamonds with a distant relative of one the Film/{{Amistad}} slaves. The wife of a [[Film/ABeautifulMind famous mathematician]] is writing a story about them (although she doesn't appear to have aged much since the 1960s), the story involves [[Film/FrostNixon Sir David Frost]]... or is it [[Literature/TheDamnedUnited Brian Clough]]?
** Hard to spot behind the grey hair and moustache, but [[Film/TheGodsMustBeCrazy Andrew Steyn]], [[GeniusDitz the good-natured and clumsy-around-women zoologist]], apparently changed his career - and moral alignment - and became a diamond baron.
