Revealing mistake: When Louis is burning down the theatre, he attacks and kills Santiago with a scythe. When Santiago lands on the floor cut in half, Louis drops the scythe down on to him, where it proceeds to bounce up off what is obviously a fake rubber dummy of Santiago.

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the movie, at the bridge inside the car there is a fight between Lestat and Daniel so no one should be driving the car, but you can clearly see a man driving it and he's all covered in black. (01:56:10)

Question: I never would have picked Tom Cruise for that role, but he did a fabulous job. However, I was wondering who else the casting people considered, and what made them choose Tom Cruise?

Answer: Daniel Day Lewis was offered the part, but turned it down. There's also a rumour, that I've never seen confirmed, that Johnny Depp was approached - if true, he presumably said no. The studio wanted a good name in the role (Lewis was riding high in Hollywood after "The Last of the Mohicans", Depp was very much an up-and-coming actor at the time) so Cruise would have seemed like an obvious choice. He was initially cast against the wishes of Anne Rice (who created Lestat with Rutger Hauer in mind) - after seeing his performance, however, she made a public apology for doubting him.
