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.
    • 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?
  • Prop Recycling: The Submarine set built for this movie was also used in the JAG episode "Shadow".
