- 'Chris Evans (V)' (qv), 'Jesse Eisenberg' (qv) and 'Ben Whishaw' (qv) were originally cast in the lead roles.

- In 2008, while performing the Broadway play Equus, 'Daniel Radcliffe' (qv) auditioned and got the part of Allen Ginsberg. Radcliffe went on to film the last two Harry Potter movies, _Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)_ (qv) and _Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)_ (qv), and with him unavailable for filming, Chris Evans, Jesse Eisenberg, and Ben Whishaw were cast without Radcliffe. Shortly after, financing for the film fell through. When director John Krokidas started again with the film, he offered the role of Allen Ginsberg back to Radcliffe.

- In this film, David Cross plays Allen Ginsberg's father, Louis. In _I'm Not There. (2007)_ (qv), David Cross played Allen Ginsberg himself.
