Declined again. Of course.
30 May 2020
Of all the contributions I've had declined, and I've had a lot, this one is a real pet hate of mine. Cos I love this actor's work.
Comment: “Looks a little like Andrew Robinson, but clearly isn't him. Robinson was well established, and busy, at this point in his career. There's no reason to assumed he'd take a non-speaking role like this. Even if the guy looked like him. Which he doesn't, other than having a similar build and curly hair.”
This was March 1975, and Robinson was established in movies thanks to Dirty Harry. More important, for our purposes, he was a leading guest star in several shows that season. He wasn't doing non-speaking, uncredited roles in anything.
But, beyond that, the guy in the episode clearly doesn't look like him. That's the big one. The guy doesn't look like him.
Yet, some editor at IMDb (in typical fashion) felt it was perfectly fine to add the credit. Based on what proof, I wonder.
Again, I have to ask, who are these people? What is the quality control for hiring these people? Seriously. I want to know.
