!! For the original TV series:
* BigNameFan: Creator/AynRand. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer No, seriously]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Reportedly it was Creator/AynRand's favorite show and Farrah Fawcett was her top choice for the role of Dagny Taggart if ''Literature/AtlasShrugged'' was ever turned into a movie.[[note]]Unfortunately the movie version arrived two years after Miss Fawcett passed away.[[/note]]

!! For the 2000 Film series:
* ActorAllusion: When Dylan uses a flamethrower in ''Full Throttle'', the song "[[TheProdigy Firestarter]]" plays, as a reference to Drew Barrymore's role in the film ''Film/{{Firestarter}}''.
** In the first film, the house in which the two kids are playing a videogame when a naked Dylan comes knocking is the same house from ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial''.
** Jason (played by Matt [=LeBlanc=]) is an actor and a bit of a ditz. [[Series/{{Friends}} Sound familiar]]?
** Creator/BruceWillis plays the first federal agent [[spoiler:Madison Lee (Creator/DemiMoore)]] kills. Guess that divorce wasn't as amicable as they made it seem...
* HeyItsThatGuy: [[{{Friends}} Matt [=LeBlanc=]]] is Jason, [[Terminator2JudgmentDay Robert Patrick]] is Ray Carter, a young [[Film/{{Transformers}} Shia LeBouf]] is Max, and [[Film/BackToTheFuture Crispin Glover]] is the Thin Man.

!! For the reboot TV series:
* FakeAmerican: Rachel Taylor as an American since she's an Australian.
* ThePeteBest or TheOtherMarty: Robert Wagner was set to be the voice of Charlie (replacing the late John Forsythe) but was prevented by scheduling conflicts; ultimately Victor Garber supplied Charlie's voice.
