Trivia / American History X

  • Irony as She Is Cast: Fairuza Balk, who is of Romani heritage, playing a neo-Nazi. Edward Furlong is also of Mexican and Native-American descent (apart from also having Russian ancestry).
  • Wag the Director: Tony Kaye was removed from the project after shooting completed and Edward Norton delivered the final cut of the film. He's been accused of vainly giving himself more screen time, while others seem to believe that he merely stepped in to rescue the film from the scrap heap.
