One Hour Photo/Trivia

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Dyeing for Your Art -- Robin Williams made himself blond to look less like Robin Williams.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! -- Sy's boss is played by Gary Cole, the same actor who played another office manager in Office Space.
  • Playing Against Type -- Robin Williams breaking free from his "adorable funny guy" persona.
    • The director comments to Robin during the DVD Commentary that it's the first one Williams has ever done. Williams explains that he normally can't watch movies he's in, because he sees himself, rather than the performance. But Sy is so completely different from Robin Williams in every way that he can watch the movie without seeing himself.
