Tim Thomerson, who plays the chopper pilot Charts, was in another 80's movie playing a pilot. He plays Jason Gedrick's POW dad in "Iron Eagle". Randall "Tex" Cobb, who plays Sailor, also played Leonard Smalls, the biker guy in "Raising Arizona".
Fred Ward has always been a busy man and has appeared in some classic movies, the one I shall always remember him for though has to be Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous. Special mention does go out to him also for the awesome Tremors.
