* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Mike [=McShane=]:
*** Mike was Friar Tuck in ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'' - and scores major points for getting the accent right.
*** That should be no surprise; all that time spent on the UK version, he apparently picked up the accent.
*** He was also the therapist who dies of a heart attack in ''Film/OfficeSpace''.
*** It's the mechanic from ''Series/BrotherlyLove''!
*** It's the wacky professor from the ''Film/RichieRich'' live-action movie!
** Caroline Quentin: From ''MenBehavingBadly''!
** Ryan Stiles appeared in the Film/HotShots movies, and also had a recurring role on Two and a Half Men.
** Greg appeared in a guest spot on ''Series/FamilyMatters'' as a café manager. Sort of an EarlyBirdCameo for ABC.
* HeyItsThatVoice: And for the more geekily-inclined among us, Mike was also the voice of Cid (Rikku's father as well as the leader of the Al Bhed and the ''Fahrenheit'''s captain) in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''.
** Also Marlon and Caractacus P. Doom (among others) in ''WesternAnimation/AvengerPenguins''.
** Greg was, at one point, the American voice of WesternAnimation/BobTheBuilder. Really.
*** He's also one of the podrace announcers in ''FIlm/ThePhantomMenace''. And one of the announcers, alongside Creator/JohnDiMaggio, for VideoGame/MadWorld. He's got an eclectic mix of roles.
** Wayne sang the theme for fellow ABC series ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders''.
** Gary Anthony Williams, AKA [[WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks Uncle Ruckus (no relation)]].

** According to StephenFry, ''EmmaThompson'' auditioned for ''Whose Line'', but was turned down. However, the producers didn't turn her down because they didn't think she was funny. She was turned down because Fry had already brought over Tony Slattery, Hugh Laurie (for the radio version), and Peter Cook (all old friends of Fry's from Cambridge), and the producers didn't want people to think they were only letting people associated with Fry to be on the show. Fry has stated this is one of the reasons he quit ''Whose Line'' after the first televised season.

* Both Mike [=McShane=] and Tony Slattery have said that they were both effectively kicked off the show, because creator Dan Patterson was trying very hard to sell the show to US producers, to the point that he was caving to almost every demand to "Americanize" it, and Mike and Tony didn't appeal to most American executives.

* AccidentallyAccurate: [[InUniverse]] The Newsflash using clips from ''Film/BasketCase'' included the part with Belial doing a GroinAttack, leading to Jeff and Ryan misleading Colin into thinking it was "a giant monster with a big penis." In the actual movie, [[spoiler:Belial is responsible for a rape scene, of which [[FreezeFrameBonus a snippet makes it into the Newsflash]].]]
