* CreatorCameo: Scriptwriter Steven Brill plays prosecutor Frank Huddy in D1. See WhatCouldHaveBeen below for details. He has cameos in D2 and D3 as well.

* RealLifeRelative: Elden Henson (Fulton) and Garette Ratliff Henson (Guy) are brothers. Elden had to dye his hair black and use a stage name (he's credited as Elden Ryan Ratliff) so he could play Fulton.
