Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (1)
Because Bruce Willis refused to re-record several lines of dialog (ADR) when the movie was being restructured, a sound-alike voice-over actor had to be brought in.
During the opening montage showing the development of the surrogates, there is a shot of an Asian man with an android twin. This is actually footage of Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University and his creation - Geminoid, a prototype android double of himself.
A close-up shot of Strickland's FBI file shows his date of birth as 21 December, 1969 and birthplace as Lynn, Massachusetts. These are also the real date of birth and birthplace of actor Jack Noseworthy who plays Strickland in the film.
