Saving Mr. Banks (2013) extras

I wanted to move the credited extras in Saving Mr. Banks (2013) from the additional crew to the cast, but my update (#231006-234056-727000) was wholly rejected.

Here's the evidence of the extras being credited. Any acting credits besides ADR loop groups should be in the Cast section, not Additional Crew.

I hope by bringing this update to the Help board that this oversight can be corrected. Thank you in advance.

Hi @smcgann414 -

Based on our guideline: -- "If the person is in-front of the camera or providing their voice, then they are considered Cast".

I have now moved these credits to the Cast section and the changes should be live on the site shortly.

Cheers!

This isn't an absolute rule: "If the person is in-front of the camera or providing their voice, then they are considered Cast" as IMDb does not consider stunt men, photo doubles or Additional Voice credits (unless they immediately follow the cast) as cast members though they are in front of the camera or providing a voice.

Hi @adrian​ -

This is true, it isn't absolute, apologies for not being clear.  In this specific instance, as these are clearly background/Self on-screen credits, they will qualify as Cast.

I just noticed this and wanted it to be noted for future reference since there are also stand-ins listed in the picture.

Hi @smcgann414 -

From what I see in the screenshot, they are not listed under cast, but under crew, reason why they were added as part of crew. We will consult our policy team to be sure they are listed correctly, I will let you know when we have an answer.

Cheers!

Thank you! I found that to be a weird choice for listing them as well.

This one of the more ridiculous of IMDb rules (especially for Additional Voice credits on animated features). No other department is dependent on where the credit designer places the credits. Cast members are cast members even if IMDb disagrees.
