Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Caitlyn types her email about Stephen's suspension, she adds a "sad face" made from a colon and an open parenthesis at the end of the message which appears on the screen. When we see the email again, the "sad face" has disappeared.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the scene where Marty comes in to sit in on the meeting of the editors, Caitlin is wearing a light blue sleeveless top. However when the camera cuts back to the editors sitting down and checking the paper for "comma errors", she is wearing a dark blue button-up shirt with short sleeves.
  • Writer/director Billy Ray initially had a great deal of difficulty convincing the real life Michael Kelly (XXVIII) to assist in the production of the movie. Kelly felt a great deal of embarrassment over Stephen Glass's fraudulent articles, especially because he was editor of the New Republic when many of Glass's articles were published. Ray eventually persuaded Kelly to help him by telling him that he was approaching this story as a journalist who wanted the script to be as factually accurate as possible. This convinced Kelly to help with the project.
  • Writer/Director Billy Ray first came to this project when HBO, which had optioned a Buzz Bissinger article about the Stephen Glass (II) debacle, hired Ray to adapt the article into a screenplay. While he was writing it, certain HBO executives were fired. By the time he handed in the script, Ray says in an interview, there was a new administration at HBO who "hadn't ordered the script and didn't particularly care about it. So it sat for two years." As he continued writing scripts, he eventually decided "it was time to find out if I was grown up enough to be a director." And he thought that his adaptation of the Bissinger article would be "a good launching point for me because I knew there was nothing in there that was so craft-dependent that my lack of experience was going to hang me." Ray recounts these events in The Dialogue: An Interview with Screenwriter Billy Ray (2007) (V).
