I tried to change the name of an actor who played a certain character in a movie, but I couldn't get it to work.

I tried to change the name of an actor who played a certain character in a movie, but I couldn't get it to work. In the movie Little Shop of Horrors (1986) it says that James Belushi played the character Patrick Martin but that role is actually played by Paul Dooley.

This will be because IMDb is correct already.  James Belushi played this role according to the credits:



Paul Dooley does have a "thanks" credit though -> http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0233209/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1#thanksMovie

Were you watching some special edition? Dooley played it first but the part was re-written and it was released with Belushi in the role and credits but a thanks to Dooley. I have the video from when was initially released on home video and it's Belushi. I would assume it was that version for its theatrical run, too. IMDb listing would be the initial released and versions later released would not change the cast list though the 'thanks' credit could be explained as a trivia item.

It looks like you watched a different cut of the film and it looks like this trivia item explains it:
