Warning: This is going to be pretty cute.
Ted Lasso Cast member Cristo Fernández revealed in a Reddit Ask Me Anything interview that he made a comprehensive background story for his character, the bubbly football player Dani Rojas. In the bio that Fernández wrote, Rojas is the youngest of 12 siblings, which is “why he pushes himself to give his best and help his family home,” and he has 43 cousins.
While everyone in the Rojas family works on the family farm, they also own a “humble taco truck”. Unfortunately, “Dani is lousy at cooking”, but everyone else is cooking “amazing food”. And of course, Dani perceives himself as a “free spirit” and a “very positive man”, personal qualities that are obvious to anyone who has seen him run across the field and shout “Fútbol is life!”

IN The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Katniss meets the cameraman Pollux, who is an Avox, or a person who had his tongue cut out of the Capitol. Pollux communicates through sign language, and after greeting Katniss, he signs to his brother Castor that he thinks she is beautiful.
Elden Henson, who played Pollux, told Zimbio: “One of the PAs on our set had sign language as his major, so I immediately pulled him aside and talked a lot with him and with Francis. [Lawrence, the director], and we had a conversation about finding small moments in the film that show how close Wes is [Chatham, who played Castor] and that was me. There’s the scene where I talk about how beautiful Katniss is, and that day – and this is a testament to how great Francis is – I said, ‘You know, there may be a possibility for Wes and I, who just was kind of in the background of that scene, to do something. ” Lawrence and screenwriter Peter Craig found at the time, while PA helped Henson learn to sign it.
Throughout season 2 of Derry girls, the titular group of friends wears rainbow pins in support of Clare, who came out as a lesbian in the season 1 finale. This is extra cute, considering how strict their Catholic high school seems to be around its uniform policy.

IN Tik, Tik … Bom!, Stephen Sondheim is played by Bradley Whitford, but the real composer makes a voice-only cameo as he leaves an encouraging voicemail to Broadway up-and-comer Jonathon Larson.
Director Lin-Manuel Miranda told Entertainment Weekly that Sondheim asked to rewrite the voicemail because he felt it was “a bit banal.” Whitford did not have time to re-record the new lines, so Sondheim stepped in for him. Said Miranda: “It makes me cry at all to think about. Because he was such a mentor to Jon and generations of songwriters. But yeah, he rewrote that message and recorded it himself and just sent it to me.”

In the background of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, you can see an advertisement for a movie that does not exist, at least not in this universe: From Dusk To Shaun, a fictional sequel to Edgar Wrights Shaun of the Dead.
One of the film’s three directors, Rodney Rothman, mailed Wright to ask him if he would contribute to the film’s vision of an “alternative New York City with same-but-different things.” Rothman wrote: “I want to make underground and bus commercials for films that do not exist in our world, but which theoretically could. And ideally, I would like the film titles from the actual filmmakers. … Basically a film made .. of an alternative universe version of you. “
Lin-Manuel Miranda plays piragüero in the 2021 adaptation of his musical In the Heights, and director John M. Chu told BuzzFeed that Miranda was actually delighted when he caught a bottle of strawberry syrup in “Piragua (Reprise),” because it was the only time he was able to do so.
Chu said, “In the end, when he’s in ‘Piragua (Reprise),’ he has, I think, the strawberry syrup, and turns it on its back. And when he caught it, he lost it so many times, but it’s the one once he caught it. So he’s really excited when he catches it. “
Five feet apart is a film from 2018 about the star-crossed romance of Stella and Will, two teenagers with cystic fibrosis, who due to the risk of infection must not be physically close to each other or anyone else with the disease. The director, Justin Baldoni, was inspired to make the film after meeting and becoming friends with Claire Wineland, a CF patient he was part of My last days, a documentary series about people living with a deadly disease. Baldoni told the Hollywood Reporter: “Her soul is in this movie and it would not have been made without her.” Wineland died before she could see the film, which is dedicated to her, but she still got a chance to attend the table.
Wineland was a YouTuber who made videos about living with CF; Five feet apart‘s Stella does the same. In a handful of flash-and-you-will-miss-them-moments, the film nods to Wineland’s career as a YouTuber. For example, while Will is watching Stella’s videos in his hospital room, you can watch two of Wineland’s videos: “Happy New Year live from the hospital” and “Why are my parents Melissa and John (and all CF parents) shitty!”
This one is harder to see, but in the universe, Claire and Stella even collaborated on a video titled “My Collab with the Amazing Claire Wineland.”
