!Trivia: Drive Film
* HeyItsThatVoice: Bernie is played by Albert Brooks, who did voice work as Nemo's father in ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''. He's also a regular contributor for ''TheSimpsons'', providing the voice for Hank Scorpio.
* TheRedStapler: Driver's silk scorpion jacket has become available (although it seems [[http://imgur.com/gallery/kmoyI no one]] can quite pull it off as well as Ryan Gosling).
** The film was originally planned as a big budgeted blockbuster star vehicle for HughJackman directed by [[Film/TheDescent Neil Marshall]] before both abandoned the project.
** Christina Hendricks wasn't the first choice for Blanche. Refn had originally sought to cast porn actresses to give the part a bit of RealitySubtext but couldn't find any with good enough acting skills and cast Hendricks in the part when his wife suggested her. Although hints of the intended RealitySubtext can be found in other parts in the movie; porn actress Andy San Dimas plays one of the strippers in Cook's lap-dance club.
** Irene was written as a Hispanic character (in the source novel, her name was "Irina").
