Impostor (2001) Poster

(2001)

Trivia

First movie to include actors from all three of the CSIs 1. Gary Sinise - Detective Mac Taylor from CSI: NY (2004) 2. Gary Dourdan - Warrick Brown from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000) 3. Adam Rodriguez - Eric Delko from CSI: Miami (2002).
Young Spencer Olham is played by Mac Sinise, Gary Sinise's son.
In the opening scene of the movie, footage of soldiers is taken from the 1998 film Starship Troopers and footage of a crater and other explosions is taken from the film Armageddon.
The adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story "The Impostor" was originally planned to be one segment (about forty minutes) of a three-part science fiction movie. The production company liked the early "dailies" so much, that the idea was fleshed out into a feature length film. The other segments grew into the features Mimic (1997) and Alien Love Triangle (2008).
Spencer Olham is said to be "very good at integral and differential calculus." This is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Gilbert and Sullivan's musical "Pirates of Penzance" from the famously silly patter-song "Modern Major General." (The line from the song is, "I am very good at integral and differential calculus, I know the scientific names of being animalculus...")
A street scene is filmed in a courtyard of Cal Poly Pomona's administration building, the same one used for Jude Law's apartment building in Gattaca (1997). Several students and staff of Cal Poly Pomona were used as extras for this scene.
Maya Olham watches a televised news report that refers to a Ballard space institute - a reference to J.G. Ballard, the British science fiction writer.
Originally intended to be Miramax's big Christmas movie for 2001, the film got delayed to January just days before it was set to open due to last-minute edits on Kate and Leopold (2001), which forced that film to take this film's original date.
Jennifer Lopez was originally cast in the role of Maya Oldham.
