* ExecutiveMeddling: ''8mm 2'' was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally known]] as ''The Velvet Side of Hell''. It was renamed when Sony (who owned Columbia Pictures) picked up the rights to distribute it, possibly to cash-in on the original film.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Several.
** Eddie Poole is played by [[Series/TheSopranos Tony Soprano]].
** Dino Velvet has played several recognizable cameo [[Film/{{Fargo}} roles]] [[Film/TheBigLebowski in]] [[Film/MinorityReport many]] [[Film/{{Armageddon}} high-profile]] [[Film/{{Constantine}} films]].
** Max California is played by [[WalkTheLine Johnny Cash]].
** [[Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Dr. Chilton]] is Daniel Longdale.
** Machine, hard to believe, is actually [[spoiler:[[Series/TheWire Frank Sobotka]]]].
*** And let's not get started on the double life [[Series/TrueBlood Andy Bellefleur]] is leading.
** I guess Warren Anderson got to be an [[Film/TheBoondockSaints action]] [[Series/TheWalkingDead hero]] after all.
