Tuck's real name is listed as 'John Harrison' on the dating site. That makes this the first time that 'Chris Pine' clashes with a character called John Harrison in a movie. A year later, Pine would play James T. Kirk in Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), where he battles with Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch) who uses the alias John Harrison.
