** Brenda Strong (Ann) had a role in a tenth-season episode of the original series as one of Cliff's one night stands.
** Creator/GlennMorshower (who plays Lou, a lawyer who helps the Ewings throughout the first season) played a small role as a campaign aide in the original series' first-season episode "Black Market Baby".
** Barry Corbin, who played Sheriff Washburn in the original series, appears as J.R.'s lawyer during the will-reading scene in "Ewings Unite!".
