I was one of the extras in the movie. Almost each time you see a hand pushing a button or turning a dial, it is mine. I actually had a line, but they gave it to John P. Ryan, instead. Arthur Hill played Dr. Duffy in the movie. He had just finished his TV series, "Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law." Several times during the movie, people called him Owen. He always smiled and responded.
Several plot lines were dropped. There were quite a few scenes filmed using identical twins to show how the cloning went. Almost none of this was used.
