    Things you probably didn't know... but now you do.

    - In the original script, Marshall was described as "a drug addict stuck in the '70's"
    - Will was originally named Clay
    - The director appears as the source Will has in Jail
    - The director's wife appears as the CIA therapist
    - People have told me that each episode costs about $2 million dollars to make (not sure if this is true)
    - Sydney says to CIA Agent Michael Vaughn, the L.A Kings are in town next Week, and says they are playing the New York Islanders, she suggests that they go. This episode was aired January 20th 2002, the Kings actually played the Islanders one night before this episode aired.
    - The pilot episode features multiple references to the film Run Lola Run (1998).
    - The two-part episode, "The Box" where rogue agents take over SD-6, has a plot similar to Die Hard (1988). The van that the rogue agents pull up in has the name McTiernan written on the side. John McTiernan was the director of Die Hard.
    - David hallyday's mother is Sylvie Vartan
    - Ron Rifkin, who plays Sloane, originally auditioned for the Jack part [thanks to Alias: Declassified, the official Alias companion]
    - Every Christmas, Jennifer is in charge of passing out presents. She wears a hat that says “Santa Pup”.
    - Jennifer's family nickname is “Puppy”.
