Trivia: Good Night, and Good Luck.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Players of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 were surprised to find the hapless President Michael Dugan playing the tormented journalist Don Hollenbeck. With the same actor (Ray Wise), people who saw Good Night, and Good Luck after Season 5 of 24 (which aired a year later) similarly wonder what Republican Vice-President Gardner was doing as a suspected Communist. All of that was payback for being one of Clarence Boddicker's enforcers.
    • Fans of Family Guy and MADtv would recognize Alex Borstein (Lois Griffin, Miss Swan, and many others) playing a minor role.
    • Patricia Clarkson (Shirley Wershba) turns up in all sorts of places, including Miracle, High Art, The Green Mile, Jumanji, and Frasier.
    • Morrow is played by Pierce Patchett. Or, if you're a Stephen King fan, Joe St. George.
    • Taub and Howard each show up for about thirty seconds each as CBS employees.
