* FakeAmerican: Tom Wilkinson as Dr. Creator/BenjaminFranklin, Stephen Dillane as UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson, Rufus Sewell as UsefulNotes/AlexanderHamilton...

** Hamilton, in fact, was born and raised in the British West Indies, on the island of Nevis.
** HeyItsThatGuy!
*** One of Adams' sons is [[TheHistoryBoys Posner]].
* RetroactiveRecognition: Creator/StephenDillane (UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson) after being cast as Stannis Baratheon in ''Series/GameOfThrones''.
** Creator/AndrewScott (William Stephens-Smith, Nabby's husband) went on to play [[Series/{{Sherlock}} Moriarty]].
