Michael Straczynski originally intended for Everett McGill to play the role of Major Ryan in the episode Severed Dreams. However he did not know McGill's first name, so when he asked to have McGill contacted Straczynski was asked if he meant Bruce McGill, to which he replied yes. Even though it became apparent to Straczynski when Bruce McGill met him to discuss the role that this wasn't the McGill Straczynski had in mind, Straczynski decided to use Bruce McGill instead.
