Trivia: Hustle

  • Actor Allusion:
    • In a season eight episode, Jodie Prenger plays a friend of the gang who winds up in hospital after using a dodgy diet product sold by that episode's marks. Before her acting career took off, Prenger won the UK version of The Biggest Loser and subsequently worked as a writer on diet issues.
    • In the final episode it's proposed that the now seven-person team should be called The Magnificent Seven. Albert, played by Robert Vaughn, seems very taken with the idea.
  • Directed by Cast Member: Adrian Lester directed an episode of the final series (which resulted in Mickey spending much of the episode locked in a car boot).
  • Fake American: One episode had what may be a triple subversion: they think JW3 is American. He's played by American actor Richard Chamberlain. Then it turns out the character is British, and was a Fake American all along. Then it turns out that he really is American, and was a Fake Brit for a bit.
  • Fake Brit: Parodied - one episode has Albert convinced he can do accents, much to the others' horror.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: One episode's victim is played by David "Inspector Grim" Haig from The Thin Blue Line. Another is played by the same guy who was Groom #2 in Four Weddings and a Funeral. Another has them conning a man played by Kenneth Cranham, who was Pompey on Rome.
  • No Export for You: North America hasn't seen a DVD release of the series since Season 4.
  • Star-Making Role: For Louise Mardenborough in season 7, with her faux-American accent (claiming to be from Minnesota)
