stock footage used
Jack Ryan (Harrison Ford) is handed a sheaf of photos of Colombian drug lords; one is represented by a photo of Claude Rains wrapped in gauze and wearing cheaters, because they don't know who he is or what he looks like.
At the point during the scene when it goes slow-mo when Cortez talks to Escobedo, and the baseball passes Escobedo there is an obvious nod to Red October. After the scene picks up speed, they talk in English, much in the same way Ramius and Ivan Putin switch languages in Ramius's cabin after Putin reads the passage from the book.
