** [[Series/TheShield Walton]] [[Series/{{Justified}} Goggins]] has a bit role in the first as one of the members working at Treadstone HQ.

** [[Film/{{Gladiator}} Quintus]] is Marshall.
** How can [[Film/{{Predators}} Hanzo]] beat a Predator? He's actually a LARX agent!
** You'd think [[Creator/EdwardNorton Eric Byer]] would know not to assume a target is dead without witnessing it firsthand...it's not like he hasn't [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk pulled the same trick himself.]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/BradPitt turned down the role of Jason Bourne.
** Creator/CliveOwen was the sniper assassin towards the end of the first movie. In the lead up to ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' he was one of the people in the running for the role of Film/JamesBond, which would have made this movie just a little funnier in hindsight. Still, you can always imagine it was either [[Film/ShootEmUp Smith]] or [[Film/TheInternational Salinger]].

* SleeperHit: The first film. It had tested horribly and Universal delayed it for a year to do reshoots. When it opened, it was expected to die a quick death against ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' and ''{{Windtalkers}}''. However, reviews and word-of-mouth turned out to be quite positive and it managed to gross over $100 million at the box office.

* UnderAgeCasting: Julia Stiles played Nicky Parsons, one of Jason Bourne's field handlers on an extremely sensitive mission and apparently has beyond Top Secret clearance given what she is involved in (monitoring all of the Treadstone field agents). In other words, significantly more dangerous to the Agency than Bourne is if she screws up, or if something was missed in her vetting and she is less than 100% loyal. When ''The Bourne Identity'' was released, Stiles was a very young looking ''21''. There's an attempted HandWave in ''The Bourne Supremacy'' when Nicky explains her cover was an exchange student studying in Paris.
