Van Damme as Predator?!
Well this was new to me! But I googled and easily found stories about it including this interesting picture of JCVD with Carl Weathers on set.
He was actually left/ was fired from the production that is why he was not listed in IMDB. Here is one of those articles from The Hollywood Reporter about why he left the project/why he was fired from it.

What happened to John McTiernan?
What Sean said was correct. He was found guilty of pujury and lying to the FBI and was imprisoned for just under a year. But in that time he went bankrupt. You can read more on that on his Wiki.
Jan de Bont
He was the Director of Photography (DOP) of Die Hard and most of his filmography is in the DOP position but he has directed 5 high profile films: Speed, Twister, Speed 2: Cruise Control, The Haunting, and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.

Released in 2009 to little fanfare, it is such a weird and fun movie to see with very recognizable faces like Michael Angarano, Jemaine Clement, Jennifer Coolidge, and, as mentioned, Sam Rockwell.
The episode that debunks this is episode 88. Link.
We all know the bible story about the good Samaritan, even if you don’t you at least have heard the term “a good Samaritan”, the term refers to a person from Samaria helping someone on the road. From the wiki:
“Samaria is a historical and biblical name used for the central region of the ancient Land of Israel, bordered by Galilee to the north and Judaea to the south.”

David Duchovny weird incest movie
After clicking through his IMDB I found what this movie is called, The Secret. Despite being a fan of David’s I probably will never watch it.
