Trivia: Crossing Jordan

  • Casting Gag: In Real Life, Steve Valentine is a magician as well as an actor. Several times on the show, his character Nigel can be seen doing card tricks.
  • Directed by Cast Member: Miguel Ferrer directed four episodes.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Miguel Ferrer also appeared in RoboCop (1987), as Bob Morton.
    • Not to mention that Jill Hennessy herself is recognizable as Claire from Law & Order.
    • Jerry O'Connell was the main character from My Secret Identity and a teen genius in Sliders.
    • And what about Ferrer as Albert, the crotchety medical examiner in Twin Peaks?
    • Steve Valentine played the host of Estate of Panic, and lampshaded this when a contestant named Jordan was eliminated on one of the episodes. Steve replied "I guess we'll be... 'Crossing Jordan' off the list."
    • Jordan's hitherto unknown half-brother is none other than Jarod from The Pretender.
    • Jordan's dad was The White Shadow!
    • Sidney (New Guy) also portrays a medical examiner on "Bones", Eugene Bird
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Like Cold Case, an abundance of licensed music has apparently stopped this from getting DVD releases (the first season got a box set, but that was years ago).
