Declined again. Of course.

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.

@FranBut it's not him. 

The person in the 4th image clearly isn't the same person as the one in images 1, 2 and 3. 

I mean, it's clearly a different person @Fran , you can see that. 

1 is Andrew Robinson. From his "Streets of San Francisco" episode. 

2 is Andrew Robinson. From his "Harry O" episode.

3 is Andrew Robinson. From his "New Perry Mason" episode. 

4 is clearly not Andrew Robinson. 

It's clearly a different person. How can you defend this as "factual" when it clearly isn't him? 

I have to ask, @Fran , do you even know who Andrew Robinson is? It's a serious question.

@mbmbWow. That is clever. 

I never would have thought to do that in a million years. 

I'm sure it won't convince the inept editors at IMDb but you sure made my week-end. Thanks for that, at least. 

Wow.
