* CastingGag: Spielberg and Lucas have said that Indiana Jones was highly inspired by JamesBond. When they were casting the role of Henry Jones, Sr. they said, "what better man to play the father of Indiana Jones than [[SeanConnery James Bond himself]]?"

* CastingGag: Creator/SeanConnery was cast because Steven Spielberg and George Lucas have said that Indiana Jones was highly inspired by JamesBond. When they were casting thought the role of Henry Jones, Sr. they said, "what better only man to who could play Indy's father was Film/JamesBond, and because the whole franchise was born out of Spielberg's desire to direct a [[Film/JamesBond James Bond movie]] -- so in every sense of the word, James Bond ''is'' the father of Indiana Jones than [[SeanConnery James Jones.
** Several actors in the film were in
Bond himself]]?"films before. Creator/JulianGlover (Donovan) was Bond villain Kristatos in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly''; John-Rhys Davies (Sallah, who had been in the first film, granted) was [=KGB=] General Pushkin in ''Film/TheLivingDaylights'', and Alison Doody (Elsa) was Jenny Flex in ''Film/AViewToAKill''. Michael Byrne was cast much later in a small role in ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'' (the Navy commander).
** Not a gag, but Julian Glover (Donovan) and Michael Sheard (Hitler) were both in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' (also Lucasfilm, of course). Glover was General Veers, commander of the ground forces assigned to Vader's Super Star Destroyer ''Executor'', who led the assault on Hoth. Sheard played Admiral "[[YouHaveFailedMe You Have Failed Me For The Last Time]]" Ozzel. The General tried to talk Vader out of killing him, so this is the second time that Glover had tried to prolong Sheard's life (well, save that Donovan wants the Grail for himself).
*** This isn't the first crusade that Julian Glover's character was involved in. He appeared in the Doctor Who episode aptly titled [[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E6TheCrusade "The Crusade"]]

* FakeNationality: Welsh John Rhys-Davies plays Egyptian Sallah, Irish Alison Doody plays Austrian Elsa Schneider, English Alexei Sayle as the Sultan of Hatay and English Julian Glover plays American Walter Donovan with an impeccable accent (but listen closely to when he talks about Hitler and the Nazis wanting "write themselves into the Grail legend. Take on the world" and you'll hear his accent slip a little).
