Vincent Ventresca and Paul Ben-Victor were co-stars in the sci-fi series The Invisible Man (2000). Greg Yaitanes also directed various episodes from the series. When Greg read the script for this episode and it called for two lifelong buddies, he immediately thought of Paul and Vincent. Las Vegas executive producer and show runner 'Gary Scott Thompson (I)' didn't know who they were but upon seeing their faces, recognized them and knew they could pull it off. There is, however, no connection to The Invisible Man series in terms of any form of crossover.
