  • Name's the Same: Mr. Grey: A giant shit-weasel alien intent on destroying Earth, or a hot stalker billionaire Jerkass?
  • Playing Against Type:
    • Morgan Freeman is the antagonist. And a Knight Templar at that.
    • Donnie Wahlberg as Duddits is another one.
    • Also one of the few times Damian Lewis has been a Non-Action Guy.
  • Those Two Actors: Damian Lewis and Donnie Wahlberg had starred in Band of Brothers together.
