Erick Avari, who plays Dr. Bey in the first film, was also the 7-11 clerk in who chastises Link (Brendan Fraser) for drinking out of the Icee machine ("No wheezing the ju-uice!")
Encino Man 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.
