Production Notes:

  • Mike Schank (in a way) actually appears on the promotional material for two movies. For THE TAO OF STEVE movie posters, Sony Picture Classics used the body of Mike Schank from the AMERICAN MOVIE poster and substituted TAO actor Donal Logue's head. Though some jewelry was removed and a little girth was added, Sony confirmed that the body in the poster does belong to Mike Schank.
