  • In a blog post, Greg Beeman noted that the Dual scene in which the President makes his debut was filmed in October 2008, one month before Election Day in the United States. Beeman said that Tim Kring "really wanted to cast an African American in the role of the President, even though, at that time it was quite uncertain how the election would turn out."
