Trivia / Under Siege

  • Actor Allusion: Jordan Tate is "Miss July '89" — actress Erika Eleniak, who played her, was Playboy's Playmate of the month of July 1989 in real life.
    • She was even wearing a naval-themed outfit in her centerfold.
  • Playing Against Type: Tommy Lee Jones, usually a quippy but stern lawman or soldier, clearly has a ball playing a snarky, unhinged terrorist.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Tom Wood, the actor who plays Private Nash (who guards Ryback in the meat locker and neglects to take his pies out of the oven) would play Noah Newman in The Fugitive just one year later, again with Tommy Lee Jones. And later would reprise that role in U.S. Marshals.
  • Shout-Out: Strannix's​ ramblings about shrimp coming to save a lobster from 'the Swedish cook' are a reference to The Muppet Show.
