!!!The 1996 film:
* BannedInChina: the film was banned by the local council in the City of Westminster (which includes most of the central London cinemas) after the ''[[BritishNewspapers Daily Mail]]'' launched one of the most unhinged censorious campaigns against a single film in the UK's living memory.
* TheDanza: James Spader as James Ballard. This one is most certainly coincidence, as this character's name is taken from the writer (James Graham Ballard) rather than the actor.
* HeAlsoDid: This from the man whose autobiography was ''{{Empire of the Sun}}?''
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** The tattoo artist was a judge on ''ThisIsWonderland''.
** Vaughan was Casey in the ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' movie, announced acts at the ''{{Exotica}}'', and shot [[Series/{{House}} Dr. House]]
