  • Notes

    • Canadian actor Jaimz Woolvett was originally cast in the role of Call, fresh off the New Zealand based series White Fang, but even though his checks had stopped coming weeks earlier, White Fang producer Guy Mazzeo refused to allow Woolvett to take the role, insisting he was still until contract, and the producers had to go with second choice Scott Bairstow. In 1996, Woolvett, who had been offered $3.2 million to play Newt Call, won that amount in a lawsuit against Mazzeo, who successfully kept him from pursuing many career opportunities while still not paying him.
