Trivia: 24 Hour Party People

  • Actor Allusion: Taken almost to Recursive Reality levels. Steve Coogan, who played Tony Wilson, based his comedy character Alan Partridge partly on Tony Wilson, and there are notable similarities between how the characters are presented.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Nearly every big British actor and comedian of 2002 is in this movie. Just check out the cast list on IMDb.
    • In a similar vein, there's also a lot of cameos from real-life figures in the Madchester / Hacienda scene.
    • In particular, the gutter philosopher claiming to be Boethius may have actually been there just to inspire Tony Wilson. It wouldn't be the Doctor's strangest mission.
