* [[Robert Downey, Jr.]] as Kirk Lazarus: compared to [[Russell Crowe]],<ref name="DVDCommStall" /> an immensely talented Australian [[method actor]], Lazarus had a controversial "pigmentation alteration" surgery to darken his skin for his portrayal of the black character Sergeant Lincoln Osiris.

Lazarus's faux trailer, ''Satan's Alley'', is about two gay monks in a 12th-century Irish monastery, parodying films such as ''[[Brokeback Mountain]]'' and Downey's own scenes with [[Tobey Maguire]] (who portrays the other monk) in ''[[Wonder Boys (film)|Wonder Boys]]''.<ref name="WonderBoysAlley" />
