Being as this was shot in California at the same time that THE George Lucas would have been in college, I've always wondered if it was him, or just some other guy...

Yes, it's him. They talk about it in his biography "Skywalking"..

Wow reading some of these posts, kinda surprising. Okay here goes

They guy who plays the captain in the Fast and the Furious was also the serial killer in Silence of the Lambs.

Muscles don't make you hide that you're a geek at heart (see Vin Diesel).

and in the next few minutes after this post I will be done with it, so there will be no saving it:
the soundtrack to Return of the Jedi is really dissapponting.

While watching Win a Date with Tad Hamil-whatever, thats Kate Bosworth's eyes are two different colors; left one is blue, the other brown.

Which for some reason I find very sexy.

That cute red-headed girl i had a crush on from the Fred Savage Nintendo jerk-off fest "The Wizard" is Jenny Lewis, lead singer of popular california group Rilo Kiley. Oh and Christian Slater was in that movie too.

That is her natural eye color, and not contacts, by the way.

Believe it or not, Ted Levine is an accomplished actor who has starred in many more movies than Silence of the Lambs.

My first on-screen crush (I was 11) was the girl in Honey I Blew up the Kid.

Turns out it was Keri Russell.

Also: Busy Phillips and Bijou Phillips don't look anything like each other.

Probably because they're not related.

Bijou Phillips and Chynna Phillips, on the other hand... still don't look all that much alike.

George A. Romero
Roger Corman and
Chris Issak were all in The Silence of the Lambs.


Romero and Issak were in the Memphis sequence.

MacGyver fires a gun in the pilot. No wonder the director of said pilot was Alan Smithee.

I also didn't know "Throw me the whip" guy in Indy was Alfred Molina until the "Pointless Throwaway Action Character" thread.

Niles the Butler on The Nanny was the captain of the aircraft carrier in Hunt for Red October.

Joe Pantoliano was Guido the Killer Pimp - and - Snake.

Circa when? ...there have been numerous shows with the 'Cosby' name in them.

...and is it OUR Sam Jackson? The name ain't exactly rare.

There's only one show with the exact title 'The Cosby Show', and there's only one bad motherfucker i'm talking about.

Sam Raimi was the "laughing detective" in Miller's Crossing, the guy who shoots the white flag waving bartender in front of the "Sons of Erin" bar. Raimi dual wields revolvers and gets littered with Tommy Gun spray, it's a pretty funny scene.

Movie connection? He wrote both X-Men movies too.

An old favorite of mine:

In The Rock, Stanley Goodspeed admits to being a coward and a square by revealing to Connery's John Patrick Mason that he 'Drives a beige Volvo.'

In Con Air, Cameron Poe writes Vince Larkin a secret memo on the doomed junkie 'Pinball,' and drops him from the plane, only to crash on Stargate SG-1's Don Davis' beige Volvo.

In Face/Off (Not a Bruckheimer film), Sean Archer (Wearing a Castor Troy flesh-mask) raids a valet's key box, and steals...a beige Volvo.

In Snake Eyes, Nick Cage acts in a horrible film. (No connection, I just consider it my civic duty to inform everyone I meet, and insist they never watch it).

Rami is also one of the guys brainstorming names for the Hula Hoop in the Hudsucker Proxy.

I, Robot's title in Spanish speaking countries is Yo, Robot.

Which sounds more like a Will Smith movie.

He always sounds like he's trying to get rid of a particularly troublesome bowel movement.

As for the person who mentioned X2 script... I did not know that. As for the first one, I know there were a fair few uncredited "polishers", including Joss Whedon. I think the only segment of Whedon's that made it into the final movie is the Cyclops/Wolverine exchange where Wolverine says "You're a dick".

Another bit of trivia that may or may not be known: If you look closely outside The Winchester in Shaun of the Dead, you'll see a zombie "Tyres", the bike courier from Spaced. It the scene where they all walk toward the pub pretending to be zombies.
