Trivia: Crimson Tide
- Backed by the Pentagon: Averted, as they refused a script involving a mutiny. The newscaster had to speak from the French carrier Foch instead of the originally planned American one.
- Hey, It's That Guy! — Ryan Phillippe in his first film. He plays a very small part as a sailor with a fishtank who is stationed in the radio room.
- And of course, Aragorn as Weps.
- And Tony Soprano as one of the officers who sides with the Captain.
- And he gets assistance from Director Vance and SecNav.
- Rick Schroder — in between his childhood role on Silver Spoons and his adult role on NYPD Blue — plays a junior officer. He's almost impossible to recognize if you're not looking for him; he's the one shouting for the guys to get out of the flooding room.
- What about Mr. Krueger as the Russian rebel leader?
- Fabrizio appears as Rivetti.
- Prop Recycling: The Submarine set built for this movie was also used in the JAG episode "Shadow".
