John Malkovich is of Croatian heritage. He played Annie Lennox's love interest in her video for "Walking On Broken Glass". The costume he wore in the video was borrowed from the set of 1988's Dangerous Liasions. Spike Jonze wanted to borrow photographs from John's childhood for the film "Being John Malkovich", to which John said , "I gave them my mother's phone number and told them to tell her that I'm an actor and it was for a film. I don't think my parents know what I do."

The radio station that is on the morning Ulysses takes off, is 97 GTR. It was a real station that played the most awesome rock in the 80's in South Florida. Unfortunately, it sold out and was turned into a dance station. Some of the best DJ's moved to that station and were lost from South Florida after GTR's great demise. It is still sadly missed.
