Louis Malle was Candice Bergen's real-life husband at the time. This was their first, and last, appearance together, as Louis passed away on Thanksgiving Day 1995 (of T-cell Lymphoma).
According to Gary Marshall, in an interview broadcast around this time, he stated that his character's first name is Stan. This will later be reflected in the credits. Director Louise Malle was married to Candice Bergen in real life and this is the first time they've appeared in a project together. Unfortunately it was also the last time, during November of 1995 Louis lost his battle with cancer.
