Trivia

  • The casting call for this character used the name Oscar Fratto.[1]
    • Michael was described as "Middle-aged. He is a mid-level sales manager at a Midwest box store. He is single, thin, and meek. He is a good worker bee, but modern life is a little too much for him. He has reached that point in his life when he's realized he hasn't done much with it."
