Question: What's the name of the actress that plays Nick's secretary? The only with the Ivy League education and a boyfriend in Israel. Her character's name is never mentioned so I can't use IMDb. She has a passing resemblance to Piper Perabo. I know it's not her.

Answer: The actress is Sarah Paulson who played Annie.

Thanks very much.

Question: Why is the Apple logo on Nick's laptop upside down?

Chosen answer: Apple PowerBooks of the time (around 1999 to 2001) had the logo the right way up to the user when closed, supposedly to prioritise the experience of the user over that of onlookers. According to former Apple employee Joe Moreno, Steve Jobs later changed his mind and after 2001, Apple notebooks had the logo right way up when opened.

Chosen answer: She would come in and explain it and they would either cancel it or interview her anyway.

Question: Why isn't Bette Midler mentioned in the credits?

Chosen answer: Presumably she chose not to be credited. This isn't that uncommon when a major star takes on a relatively minor role in a film.

Trivia

The fictional childhood of Nick, growing up in a burlesque club surrounded by beautiful, nearly naked women who adored him, is bizarrely similar to the actual childhood of Alan Alda, who plays the boss character. Alan Alda's father ran a burlesque club, and apparently the strippers and dancers treated the young Alda as a mascot, even keeping him in the changing room as they got dressed. However, as an adult Alda became an activist for feminist causes, rather than the chauvinist effect it had on the fictional Nick.
