** The director brought a buttload of ''[[Film/TheMummyTrilogy Mummy]]'' alumni with him. Besides Arnold "Imhotep" Vosloo as Zartan and an uncredited cameo by Creator/BrendanFraser as Sgt. Stone, there's a very short scene with lovable traitor Beni (Kevin J. O'Connor, who Sommers casts in every movie he's made since ''Film/DeepRising'') as evil scientist Dr. Mindbender.
** [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Darth Maul]] is Snake Eyes.
** [[Film/{{StarTrek}} Gaila]] is Scarlett. Nichols even has the same dye job.
** Marlon Wayans as the lead's BlackBestFriend. This isn't UnfortunateImplications, incidentally; [[TypeCasting he has the same role in every film he's in]]. Even alongside his own brother.
** [[Series/DoctorWho The Ninth Doctor]] is Destro. Exceptionally amusing since there's ''another'' character in the movie who's actually called ''the Doctor!'' And he's using NanoMachines... "Are you my mummy?"
** [[Series/{{Lost}} Mr. Eko]] is Heavy Duty.
** OMG, [[Music/{{Evita}} Colonel Perón]], alias [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Governor Swann]], a.k.a. [[Film/TomorrowNeverDies Elliot Carver]], is now U.S. President!
*** He would later [[RetroactiveRecognition relocate to King's Landing, convert to the Faith of the Seven]] and would become the [[Series/GameOfThrones High Sparrow]]
** Storm Shadow is [[Film/TheGoodtheBadtheWeird Park Chang-yi]], The Bad.
** Child Storm Shadow is the drug lord from ''Film/TropicThunder''!
*** And as a child Snake Eyes was [[KickinIt Leo Howard]]!

** If you watch South Korean movies, Lee Byung Hun from ''Film/TheGoodTheBadTheWeird'' and many other films plays Storm Shadow. (FYI, Lee was The Bad from the aforementioned movie.) He's also played in multiple KoreanSeries, including ''Series/{{Iris}}''. As a child, he's the drug lord from ''Film/TropicThunder''!

** Channing Tatum hates the movie as well, and says the only reason he did it is because he would have been sued for breach of contract if he'd refused.

Joe'' because he was a fan of the franchise, which made him even more disappointed of the final product's quality)
