* HeyItsThatGuy
** Show this one to a ''Series/BabylonFive'' fan. Boxleitner's obvious, [[Creator/DavidWarner as is the guy after the Holy Grail]], but the future Centauri ambassador is harder to spot...
** And you might also notice that [[BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure Mr. The Kid]] plays Ram.
** Prior to ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'', in which he plays Lovejoy (the bodyguard of [[BigBad Cal]]), Creator/DavidWarner's triple-play as Dillinger, Sark and [[spoiler: the Master Control Program]] would've been considered one of his most famous roles.
** [[Film/FridayThe13thTheFinalChapter Jason Voorhees]] is one of the guards.
** Looks like Walter Gibbs [[{{Film/TheLostBoys}} retired to Santa Clara, and got really annoyed with all the damn vampires.]]



* ThrowItIn: When the prints came back from Taiwan, there were often errors in the frames that looked like flashes of light. Since it would cost ''way'' to much to have it done over, Lisberger had a EurekaMoment and realized, of ''course'' the computer world would have ''electric glitches''. So, basically, he added a sound effect and it became ''atmosphere''.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The general look and feel of the computer world, meant to resemble the computer displays and games of the time (black backgrounds! semi-wireframe 3D graphics!), as well as the computer technology itself (command-line interfaces! teleprinters!) must have looked awfully cutting-edge and modern at the time. Now, it looks pretty retro.

** The director asked Peter O'Toole to play Dillinger... however, he ''really'' wanted to play Tron.

** The director asked Peter O'Toole to play Dillinger... however, he ''really'' wanted to play Tron.Tron and even went so far as to go jumping up and down on beds and furniture just to prove he was still nimble enough for such a physically demanding job.


Added DiffLines:

** JeffBridges was not the original or intended choice for Flynn. According to Lisberger the character of Flynn was originally envisioned as a thinner, more stereotypical "nerdy" type of guy as one might imagine a computer programmer to look as opposed to Bridges, who is a fairly big, rugged, stocky man, but he just brought so much energy to the role that they just had to cast him.

* EnforcedMethodActing: Tron's DeathGlare during the disc duel near the beginning. Lisberger was pissing Boxleitner off, challenging his acting, while Frisbees were being whipped at him. The final take had Tron catching the Frisbee ''behind his head'' and whipping it back - while glaring at his "opponent". He was actually ''glaring at Lisberger'' as a TakeThat.[[note]]Lisberger loved it, and grinned back.[[/note]]

* ActingForTwo
** Dillinger, Sark and the MCP are all played by Creator/DavidWarner.
** All programs have the same actor as their Users: Flynn and Clu, Alan and Tron, Lara and Yori...
** Even the PA announcements in the laser bay were done by the same person voicing the announcements inside the Game Grid.


Added DiffLines:

* TechnologyMarchesOn: Sort of -- the film is based in an '80s supercomputer, and the angular look was a deliberate aesthetic choice to make ''TRON'' look like a 16-bit world.

** Harder to put a finger on, but the main bad of the movie, (all three of them) would 15 years later be Lovejoy in ''Film/{{Titanic}}''.
