Question: The ending apparently had to be reshot, because the original ending leaked out. What was this original ending?

Chosen answer: The original ending features a huge shoot-em-up, involving more than 150 cops, but it was changed to a shoot-em-up on a much smaller scale that involves only Kevin Spacey, Samuel L. Jackson and Ron Rifkin.

Question: I think Nathan is played by Paul Guilfoyle, however, after checking and double-checking I can't see Nathan on the end credits. Am I right, and does anybody know why he wasn't credited?

Chosen answer: According to IMDB.com, Paul Guilfoyle did play Nathan, though he wasn't credited for the role.
