Trivia AnswerB) The dialogue of the two aliens in the restaurant was changed to English.
Originally the tall man (Carel Struycken) and Mr. "Little Dude Inside the Big Dude's Head" Rosenberg (Mike Nussbaum) were rival aliens on the verge of war. To keep from having to reshoot scenes, the lines were dubbed in an alien language and subtitles were used to change their conversation to make them appear as friends.
While both Clint Eastwood and Chris O'Donnell were considered for the role, this was before filming began. Jim Carrey, thankfully, never appeared in the film.
Bonus Trivia Questions: First with the correct answer will be featured in next week's post.
Easy: Name three cast members that appeared in MiB and the sequel MIIB.
Hard: Which director turned down the job because he felt it would "just be Blues Brothers in space?"
