- Actor Allusion:
- Ewan McGregor's character is constantly getting into conversations about Jedi Knights, considering that he plays the one Jedi character who appears in the first six Star Wars films (unless you count Anakin/Vader).
- When asked how to Remote View, Lyn mentions how some of the other members of the Army did it, including one who envisioned packing all his problems and possessions into a suitcase.
- Kevin Spacey again chooses a huge cigar as a gloating accessory.
- How about how much Bill Abides?
- Fake American: Ewan McGregor plays a character supposedly from Michigan. His accent is not exactly convincing.
- The odd thing is the guy who actually wrote the book, Jon Ronson, is British (born in Cardiff), but doesn't really have that strong an accent.
