Adam Kaufman plays André in this episode. In an attempt to keep the struggling show on the air after its third season, creator Rob Thomas filmed an extended pitch for the fourth season that advances the show's timeline considerably. Instead of being a college undergraduate, as she was at the end of season three, in the spec season four, Veronica has graduated from college and the FBI Academy and is starting her first day as a FBI agent. Although the pitch contained (except for Veronica) a whole new cast of heretofore unseen characters (and therefore actors), one of the new characters was a fellow FBI agent played by Adam Kaufman. This was a completely different character from the one-off appearance he made in this episode.
