Kevin Kline met Phoebe Cates during a read-through for "The Big Chill". She was reading for the role that would eventually go to Meg Tilley. Phoebe and Kevin met again a year later while performing at New York's public theater. They married in 1989.

Kevin Kline originally wanted the part that Jeff Goldbloom got. He wanted it bad because it had more laughs than the part that Kline eventually got.
