Trivia

While re-writing the Jack Collins character, Josh Becker wanted the 'average guy' to have a profession where he knew how to fight. After William Lustig shot down the idea of Collins being a Vietnam vet, an idea he was "completely sick to death of", Becker came up with Collins being a carpenter. Becker thought Collins should at least know how to use his hands. Lustig shot that down as well. Upon meeting Jan-Michael Vincent, Becker found out he was into carpentry and served in the National Guard.
