In "I Am Legend" (2007) the mutant "Darkseekers" are voiced by Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton. At 6 octaves, Patton is credited with having the widest vocal range in mainstream music. As well as being a fantastic singer, his range allows for his often otherworldly screams, growls, and effects.

Finding Easter Eggs in movies is one of my favorite hobbies. Hidden objects, characters, and their meanings are wonderful ways to discover the filmmaker's perspectives of any given movie.

I am pretty sure that you've watched Legend, maybe in a theater near you or on the small screen, but probably not many of the small details have taken your attention. Most of the previous facts are hidden for some reason, but still, there is plenty of randomly forgetten stuff that makes the movie unique and interesting. The more you know, the more fascinated you'll be about Legend and will watch it online, download or stream it again and again.
