Please update "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" cast

I notice that Bruce's name has been correctly changed to Caitlyn (thank you!), however it still shows that Caitlyn Jenner is playing "Himself". Can this be changed, please? Thank you.

As far as I know, the IMDb policy is that persons who have "Self" credits both before and after a gender transition will have each credit listed as "Himself" or "Herself" based on the gender by which the person was known at the time each Self appearance was made. See, for example, the Self credits of Chaz Bono

So Jenner's current and future Self credits would be as "Herself" but past credits would remain as "Himself" (in fact, until about three months ago, Jenner preferred to be referred to by male pronouns; see http://www.etonline.com/news/163469_bruce_jenner_20_20_interview/).

Thanks for the info, Gromit. But when an actress gets married or an actor/actress changes their name, their current name is shown in older works, with their previous name in parenthesis. Perfect example is Pamela Segal Aldon who is currently on IMDB as Pamela Aldon, but in earlier works she was Pamela Segal. One work shows as: "Pamela Adlon...Milly / Willy Niceman (as Pamela Segall)". It would be nice if IMDB could change Caitlyin's stats as "Herself", with "(as Bruce Jenner)" to clarify for those who may be confused.

While gender is different than names, you're right that, if credited "(as Bruce Jenner)" those entries should say so. Now all it takes is for someone to go through and add the attribute for all the entries. I've never seen the show nor its credits but if his name appeared in an episode that way, that's the notation that should be made.

Taking a quick look...it's already been done, probably by checking the "preserve credits as..." box when changing the name over:

Keeping Up with the Kardashians (TV Series)
Himself - In the Blink of an Eye... (2015) ... Himself (as Bruce Jenner)
- Moons Over Montana (2015) ... Himself (as Bruce Jenner)
- About Bruce: Part 2 (2015) ... Himself (as Bruce Jenner)
- About Bruce: Part 1 (2015) ... Himself (as Bruce Jenner)
- Buggy Boo (2015) ... Himself (as Bruce Jenner)
