Gary Oldman was considered for the role of Dalton Trumbo.
All right, when do I get my goods?.
Dalton Trumbo: Three days.
Frank King: A hundred page screenplay in three days? Are you trying to fuck me? 'Cause if you fuck me I will fuck you.
Dalton Trumbo: Mr. King, I've heard this speech.
Dalton Trumbo: It was better in jail.
When Trumbo is giving the final speech, the net holding the fake sideburns ant the hair at the sides of the forehead is very visible.
As the credit scroll begins, photos of the real Dalton Trumbo, his family and other people portrayed in the film are shown. These are followed by historical footage of Trumbo giving an interview (from the same one where he acknowledges that he is 'Robert Rich').
