Trivia / Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

  • Fake American: Brit Albert Finney plays Hank and Andy's father.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Dual meta-example. One of the reasons Andy plans the robbery is because he was embezzling money from his company to fund a heroin addiction. A couple of years after the movie came out, not only did Philip Seymour Hoffman, the actor who played Andy, die of a heroin overdose, but the movie's distributor declared bankruptcy due to embezzlement.
