Here is a fun link Metaphilm - Fight Club (http://www.metaphilm.com/philms/fightclub.html) about the connection between Fight Club (the film) and Calvin and Hobbes.


In the film Fight Club , the real name of the protagonist (Ed Nortonís character) is never revealed. Many believe the reason behind this anonymity is to give "Jack" more of an everyman quality. Do not be deceived. "Jack" is really Calvin from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. Itís true. Norton portrays the grown-up version of Calvin, while Brad Pitt plays his imaginary pal, Hobbes, reincarnated as Tyler Durden.
