Trivia: The Mummy Trilogy
  • Fake American:
    • Rick is an American who is played by Canadian actor Brenden Fraser.
    • Jonathan Hyde (Dr. Allen Chamberlain) is british.
  • Fake Brit: John Hannah is Scottish, but plays a Brit (his sister )
  • Fake Mixed Race: Evelyn and her brother Jonathan both have an Egyptian mother and an English father, but are played by native British actors.
  • Fake Nationality: The Scorpion King is Dwayne Johnson, an American, playing an Egyptian warrior.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Hey, isn't Beni really Michael Fitzimmons, the beat poet? No wonder they couldn't find him for the reunion!
    • So Zartan's disguised as a Mummy, huh?
    • Mr. Eko is working for Imhotep in the second film.
    • Looks like Colonel Crittendon had some seriously messed-up time-travel shenanigans after surviving WW2.
    • Erick Avari, who plays Dr. Bey in the first film, was also the 7-11 clerk in Encino Man who chastises Link (Brendan Fraser) for drinking out of the Icee machine ("No wheezing the ju-uice!")
  • The Other Darrin: In the first two films she's played by Rachel Weisz. In the third film she's played by Maria Bello because Weisz didn't want to play a character old enough to have an adult son.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Originally the opening of the first film was going to be narrated by Imhotep himself - but then Stephen Sommers remembered that Imhotep wouldn't have any reason to speak English, and the audience probably wouldn't want to sit through a voice-over that needed subtitles; thus the introduction was given to Ardeth Bay instead.
    • Ardeth Bay was supposed to die in the first film, but Sommers thought it would be a waste of a good character.
