Thanks Jessica. I added Bret and Jemaine. But Will Smith is not writer of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Also thanks for noticing the discussion link.

Does "Actors/Writers" mean they have to be both actors AND writers of the project?

The Wayan Bros. both Shawn and Marlon both starred and wrote that show.

Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids Bill Crosby wrote that animated show and did the voices of most of the kids including his younger self.

Now I got a question. Does your rules specifically mean that the Star has to be the writer and actor (and here the crucial part of the question) played a role with his own entire name? You say “Why did dgranger ask that?” Because I can name a few shows where the main star of the show’s name is in the title of the show and he did write the show but he played a character of another name that usually shared his first name. For example

- “Martin” — Martin Lawrence both starred in the show and wrote the show but he played the character Martin Payne. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103488/...

- “The Jamie Foxx Show” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115221/... Jamie Foxx both wrote and starred in the show but played the character Jamie King.

Corrected myself

So, this poll is already made. No need for second one.
