Trivia

In the novel, one of Prot's favorite movies is Starman (1984), which starred Jeff Bridges.
The original plan was that Will Smith was to play Prot and Kevin Spacey Dr. Mark Powell. When Smith pulled out of the role, Spacey decided to play Prot.
The yearbook picture of Robert Porter is the actual picture of Kevin Spacey that appears in the 1977 Chatsworth High School yearbook.
Throughout the movie sparkles of light can be seen in the background of almost all scenes, more accurately in Dr. Powell's office when he talks with Prot.
Prot's name in the book is said to rhyme with "goat." Obviously, it is short for "protagonist."
Prot's signature sunglasses are actually a favorite pair owned and worn by U2's frontman, Bono. Kevin Spacey asked to borrow them for the film, which Bono agreed to under the condition that they were well cared for and were returned immediately upon completion of the film.
Kevin Spacey had to record the scene where Prot eats a whole banana (skin and all) 27 times.
