Warren Christopher: The world is watching us. We are theoretically its last great democracy.
  • Because of the extensive parody of Katherine Harris in the media, Laura Dern expressed great apprehension over how to approach the character. Dern convinced director Jay Roach to allow her at least three takes for every scene: one underplayed, one "medium," and one way over-the-top, so Roach could help guide her performance.
  • The film cast includes one Oscar winner: Kevin Spacey; and four Oscar nominees: Laura Dern, Tom Wilkinson, Bob Balaban and John Hurt.
  • Kevin Spacey, Jayne Atkinson, and Derek Cecil would co-star on the Netflix political series House of Cards (2013).
  • Most of the cast met with their real-life counterparts prior to filming. The real Katherine Harris refused to meet with Laura Dern or anybody else associated with the production, despite repeated pleas from Dern, writer Danny Strong and director Jay Roach.
  • The real James Baker III liked and supported the film upon its release.
