And the Band Played On

Other mistake: When the child takes Don and his colleague to see a pile of Ebola fever victims, the camera lingers on the "corpse" of a man who is breathing.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie when Don cannot sleep and goes to the cafe where he sees Jim, he enters the cafe and it is dark and raining. A few minutes later during the shots where the camera is on Jim, the window is behind him and you can now see it is very light outside.

Dr. Jim Curran: I personally don't care if these people were painted by Norman Rockwell, we still have to prove that the blood is contaminated. We gotta prove it. What do we know? What do we think? What can we prove?

Question: I have a question about the first patient Don and his boss go to see (the one trying to solve the Rubik's cube). I can find no information about him. However he seems like he plays an AIDS patient in a couple of other movies, with the same lesions, same gay act, etc. Is he really like this or do they seem to cast him in the part because he plays it so well? Or am I mistaken about him? Any info would help. It is driving me crazy.

Chosen answer: The actor's name is Stephen Spinella. He is listed in the credits for "And the Band Played On" as "Brandy Alexander." Though neither his given name nor his drag name is mentioned during the cameo, he does show a book with pictures of his female impersonation to the doctors. The "trivia" portion of his IMDb profile states: "Vaulted from obscurity with his frighteningly realistic portrayal of AIDS-ravaged Prior Walter in Tony Kushner's two-part stage epic "Angels in America." An openly gay actor, he has since played in a number of gay-related themes on stage, film and TV."
