Not sure what you've tried but staff needs to sort it.  They should see your post here and help you out.  In the mean time, there might be a lot of "Eric Davies" listed in IMDb...can you provide a link to, or description of, the page you're talking about?

Actually, it looks like this page is you www.imdb.com/name/nm0203698 but an image of the Daily Show's Eric Davies got tagged improperly.  I submitted to change the tag to lead it to his page.  This should be enough.  Staff here would need to fix the main photo, but the photo in question has an "edit tags" link and I used it to do so.

Thanks for that.  IMDb finally sent me the edit tags idea, but I didn't realize it would redirect the photo to a different page.  I should have tried that before posting again.

You could also have deleted the tag to your page, but IMDb prefers correcting over removing information.  You can build the site to be bigger/better/more complete if errors are removed rather than moved to the right places or it's one step forward, one step back...but yeah, the "edit tags" link is new and makes this type of correcting much easier and staff doesn't have to process them all if users can submit the correct data.

You're very welcome!
