Trivia that mentions this person:
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets [2002]
  • To get a sense of how nasty his character should be, Jason Isaacs had to go back and watch Tom Felton's performance in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 [2010]
  • Jason Isaacs originally considered not returning for this film, fearing that his character's arrest and imprisonment at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix would mean very little if any screen time in the finale. Upon meeting J.K. Rowling, he begged to be let out of prison. She told him "You're out. Chapter one." This immediately convinced him to sign on for the film.
    Resident Evil: Apocalypse [2004]
  • According to the writer/producer commentary, Paul W.S. Anderson mentions that the character of Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen) is a homage to actor Jason Isaacs, who made an uncredited cameo as Dr. Birkin and the film's narrator during the opening credits of the first film.
    Resident Evil: The Final Chapter [2016]
  • The character Dr. Isaacs returns to this film after his death in Resident Evil: Extinction. He too is an original character to the film series and has no affiliation to the game franchise. He was, however, created in Resident Evil: Apocalypse as a replacement for William Birkin, who was played by Jason Isaacs in the original Resident Evil.
    Star Trek: Discovery - Season 1 [2017]
  • The name of Jason Isaacs's character, Captain Gabriel Lorca, is a reference to the Spanish writer and poet [?] Federico García Lorca, killed by fusillade on August 18, 1936, under accusations of being homosexual and a spy for what was then the USSR. His corpse was never found.
    Titanic [1997]
  • James Cameron's regular Michael Biehn was nearly cast as Cal Hockley and attended numerous meetings with Cameron to discuss the role. Pierce Brosnan, Rupert Everett, Peter Greene, William Hurt, Jason Isaacs, Rob Lowe, Matthew McConaughey, [?] Adrian Pauland Rufus Sewell were also considered, though ultimately the part went to Billy Zane.
    John Wick [2014]
  • Ian McShane replaced Jason Isaacs as Winston.
