Hyams, Peter Easter Egg - Spota's the Name

The name "Spota" appears in numerous Peter Hyams movies, from the drugged out space worker in "Outland" to a thug in "The Presidio" to the name of a NYC bar in "End Of Days". "Spota" also appears in "Timecop", "The Relic", and "Sudden Death".

In the audio commentary of the "End Of Days" DVD, Hyams finally admits, after long standing rumors on the Internet, that Spota is his wife's maiden name, and he places it in his movies as a Valentine to her.

The name was also used as an off screen character in the Charles Bronson movie, "Telefon". Hyams was to direct and did some re-writes to the script but the project was directed by someone else.
