* DoingItForTheArt: All of the books in John Doe's apartment? They're ''all real.'' One of the special effects companies hired for the film spent two months ''hand-writing every single one of them''. Mostly by [[CrazyAwesome one guy]] who showed exceptional talent at writing journals like a crazy insane sociopath. He even included an authentic suicide note..

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: Compare it with later ThemeSerialKiller flicks like ''Resurrection''[[note]]A ''blatant'' rip-off starring Christopher Lambert and Leland Orser (who also played the man forced by John Doe at gunpoint to rape the Lust victim to death)[[/note]], ''Film/TakingLives'', ''Film/{{Anamorph}}'', ''Film/{{Horsemen}}'', ''WΔZ'', ''Film/SuspectZero'' or ''Franchise/{{Saw}}''. Of course that's not to say ''[=Se7en=]'' didn't borrow some elements from ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'' (and, for that matter, ''Film/TheAbominableDrPhibes''...).

* HeyItsThatGuy: The Sloth victim is also [[Film/BatmanAndRobin Bane]] (without drugs) and [[Film/XMen2 Jason Stryker]]. Also the Mummy in ''Film/TheMonsterSquad''.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Toby from ''Series/TheWestWing'' as John Doe's lawyer, Dr. Cox from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' as California, John Shaft from ''{{SHAFT}}'' as District Attorney Martin Talbot, Gunnery Sergeant Hartman from ''Film/FullMetalJacket'' as the Captain, Funboy from ''Film/TheCrow'' (yes, the actor who [[FatalMethodActing accidentally killed]] Brandon Lee) as the creepy Man in Massage Parlour Booth. Oh, and [[Film/BruceAlmighty God]] (or [[Series/TheElectricCompany Easy Reader]]) is Somerset.
** Not to mention [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Crazy Joe Davola]] as Dr. O'Neill and (in a bit of RetroactiveRecognition) [[Film/BatmanBegins Detective Flass]]/[[Series/SonsOfAnarchy Bobby Munson]] as the Greasy F.B.I. Man. Plus [[Franchise/IronMan Pepper Potts]] as Tracey. In a bit of irony, [[HouseOfCardsUS Freddie]] is the coroner examing Gluttony's body years before he serves Kevin Spacey any ribs.

** Mills' mispronounciation of the {{Marquis De Sade}}'s name (see ItsPronouncedTropay on the Film page) was an ad-lib by Brad Pitt. The first time he did it, Morgan Freeman laughed out loud and said "Even Mills isn't ''that'' stupid!" Clearly, Fincher disagreed.
