- The Coen Brothers (乔尔·科恩 & 伊桑·科恩) wrote the character Osborne Cox with 约翰·马尔科维奇 in mind. 布拉德·皮特's character was also written with the actor in mind, inspired by a commercial for which he suffered a similar haircut and dye job. Indeed, the Coen Brothers noted at a Q&A session at the Venice Film Festival that all the leading characters were written for all the leading actors, with the exception of 蒂尔达·斯文顿.
- The Coen brothers (乔尔·科恩 & 伊桑·科恩) said they wrote the screenplay for this film while writing the screenplay for 老无所依 (2007). They would usually alternate every other day for each script.
- According to costume designer 玛丽·索弗瑞斯, even cheap suits look good on 布拉德·皮特. Thus, for the scene where his character Chad wears a cheap suit, she dressed Pitt in a suit with a purposefully bad and ill-fitting cut and a horrid-looking wool tie.
