In the book, Hailing Taxi: The Official Book of the Show, written by Frank Lovece and Jules Franco; Danny DeVito made the comment, "It's very, very difficult finding Jeff. As a matter of fact, when I wanted him for a part in this film (referring to Throw Mama from the Train), it took me a long, long time to find him." Lovece went on to say about Jeff, "While everybody knows him, nobody knows him."

J. Alan Thomas does not play Billy Crystal's neighbor. He plays the role of Millington. Lester (Crystal's neighbor) is played by Branford Marsalis. I had to watch it again to make sure I wasn't confused, haha.
