TV Series

  • Fake Nationality: Barry Morse was Brittish. A good thing, too, since anytime a person on the street got too threatening to him for being mean to Kimble, he could switch to his native accent and say, "Blimey, Gov, I ain't who you think I am! Must be that bloke on the telly who looks like me."
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Lots of familiar character actors, and future stars, appeared on this show.
  • It Will Never Catch On: Series creator Roy Huggins initially had great difficulty in selling the series to potential producers. Many of them felt that a series based on a wrongfully convicted man running from the law would be perceived as being too perverse, as well as a slap in the face to the American justice system.
  • You Look Familiar: Lots of actors will guest star in more than one episode in a different role. Perhaps the best example is Richard Anderson, who played Kimble's brother-in-law, Len Taft in the last 2 episodes. Anderson guest starred in 6 episodes total. The last 2 are the only ones where he played Len.

Film

  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
  • The Other Marty: Richard Jordan was originally cast as Dr. Charles Nichols, but he was extremely ill (he ended up passing away a few weeks after the film was released), thus being replaced with Jeroen Krabbe.
  • What Could Have Been: Micheal Douglas, Kevin Costner, Andy Garcia, and Alec Baldwin were considered for the role of Richard Kimble. In fact, Baldwin was cast, but dropped out over a salary dispute. Meanwhile, Jon Voight and Gene Hackman were considered for the part of Samuel Gerard.
    • There were plans to make either Dr. Kathy Wahlund or Dr. Anne Eastman (Julianne Moore's character) a love interest for Kimble. This was nixed as (a) it would have been distateful for Kimble to take a new lover while trying to solve the murder of his wife (whom he was clearly still grieving for), and (b) such a story would have distracted from the "chase" aspects of the film.
