Canadian viewers may recognize Rennes (Wayne Robson) as Mike Hamar, the ex-con from The Red Green Show.
The Danza: David Hewlett as David Worth. This might be chalked down to coincidence if not for the fact that Hewlett and Natali have been good friends since high school - because of this he probably had some imput in choosing his character's full name.
No Budget: The original was produced for only $400K. Only one set was built and all of the CG was done for free as a Doing It for the Art moment (as mentioned above).
