Xander was in an episode of Miami Vice with Sheena Easton, playing her music manager, in which he gets killed by cassette tape. He gets killed in a lot of his episodes of television! "I'm warning other actors, I think there are a few of them out there who think they have more, but I am working on a definitive death reel, and I just want to say that there is a lot of material to go on!"
The fellow who directed "Like a Hurricane" just won an Emmy for directing an episode of Fargo. "I remember when he came up to me, a very bone-dry Brit, and he leaned into me, and he said 'so, you put the cassett into the cassett player and the car blows up. Do you suppose there's anything you might say prior to putting the tape in? Maybe we need to draw a little attention to the fact there is something strange about this tape, something that doesn't sit quite right with you? Hmmm? Not quite right before you put it in, a qualm you might have?'
And I said, 'What if I pick it up, wave it around like it's heavy, and say, 'What is this, heavy metal?' I always like a pun. He says, 'I love it,' and he walks away. We shot it, and that stayed in the picture. What is this heavy metal? Kaboom! He always called him Tommy Blow as if he was addicted to cocaine and that's why he was behaving the way that he was. Always going out to an extreme behavior."
