Alan Mueting appeared in Season 2 among the background cast of the midsection survivors of Flight 815. In Season 1, he appeared as an airline pilot in several scenes at the Sydney Airport. In Numbers, he played a reporter with a microphone when Hurley won the lottery.
During the filming of Numbers, Mueting was dressed to play one of four uniformed LAPD police officers in two LAPD cop cars when Hurley was arrested. During an unfilmed rehearsal for that scene, the stunt drivers crashed the two LAPD cars into each other making one of the cop cars non-functional. The wrecked cop car and two cops (including Mueting) were cut from the scene. [source needed]
