Removing Uncredited Role From Television Series

I recently completed watching all 96 episodes of the television series Major Dad (1989–1993). I noticed when I looked up a credit for one of the episodes that Philip Romano is listed as Minor Dad (uncredited) for all 96 episodes. This appears to be a mistake, since I never saw any character that could be considered Minor Dad during any of the episodes.

Since this is an uncredited character, I wasn't certain what kind of proof (if any) I would need to suggest removal of this character for all of the episodes.

This uncredited character may also be problematic since Philip Romano has no other credits prior to 2010.

You're right, it's obviously fake. His twitter says he was born in 1992, so unless he invented a time machine, he can't be an actor in 1989.

Additionally his uncredited credits from these shows should be deleted as well: FBI: Most Wanted, Law & Order: Organized Crime, And Just Like That

Why? Because he likely provided these images as evidence to add these credits: https://philip-romano.com/background-acting

Even if we assume these are true, his face is not visible and/or he's not identifiable in any of these images. so his credit is not eligible. Uncredited acting work needs to be identifiable to be eligible to be listed. That's not the case here. (and character names he added are obviously made-up and mockery of the attached show titles)
