During the opening scene, the character Steve Reeves (Jeremy Piven) is seen giving a tour to a group of Japanese business people meant to be visiting from Sony. In an attempt to ingratiate himself with them, he quips, "If you need someone to eat some sashimi with you, give me a ring." In 2008, Piven was the subject of some media scrutiny after he abruptly dropped out of his role in a Broadway production of the play "Speed-the-Plow", claiming that he was suffering from mercury poisoning after years of heavy sushi consumption.
